Bachem-Natter

Thumbnail
The Bachem Ba 349 Natter (Adder) was a World War II era German experimental point-defense rocket-powered interceptor aircraft which was to be used in a very similar way as unmanned surface-to-air missiles. After vertical takeoff which eliminated the need for airfields, the majority of the flight to the bombers was radio controlled from the ground. Including the Fantasy Dragon Slayer, NINE versions as of 8/09 !!

Bell-P39-Airacobra

Thumbnail
The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the principal American fighter aircraft in service at the start of World War II. Although its mid-engine placement was innovative, the P-39 design was handicapped by the lack of an efficient turbo-supercharger, limiting it to low-altitude work. The P-39 was used with great success by the Soviet Air Force. Includes SIX versions and a Panzer Tank model to clobber with the (recently UN-classified!) FG spit-ball cannon.
$5.95

Bell-XFL-Airabonita

Thumbnail
The Bell XFL Airabonita was a US experimental shipboard interceptor developed for the US Navy in 1939. It was similar to and a parallel development of the land-based P-39 Airacobra, differing mainly in the use of a tailwheel undercarriage in place of the P-39's tricycle gear. Only one prototype was manufactured having lost out to the Vought Corsair.
N/A

Bell-XP-77

Thumbnail
Bell was the only US manufacturer to produce propeller-driven single-engined fighters with a tricycle landing gear during the war, notably the P-39 Airacobra and P-63 Kingcobra. In between these designs was the diminutive XP-77, which was an early configuration for the P-39 dusted off and redesigned to use non-strategic materials, mainly wood. The XP-77 was covered with stressed plywood that had been impregnated with plastic/resin bonding. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Blohm & Voss BV 141

Thumbnail
One of aviation's true oddities the BV 141 performed surprisingly well, but never saw operational service. Three prototypes of the BV 141 were made, before it went into limited production. Only a total of 23 were built. The similar fuselage, but more conventional twin-engined layout of the Focke-Wulf Fw 189 won out in the end. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Brewster Buccaneer

Thumbnail
The Buccaneer was apparently a good design but in the hands of bumbling management and inexperienced in aircraft workers in bad production facilities is the sorry story of Brewster and it's dive bombers. This model, by Rob Carleen, is of the only remaining Brewster Buccaneer proudly displayed at the Naval Air Museum, Pensacola, Florida
$4.95

Brewster Buffalo

Thumbnail
In 1935 U.S. Navy laid down specifications for a replacement for the Grumman F3F biplane equipping its four carriers. Brewster Aeronautical Corporation developed a design for a modern monoplane fighter with an enclosed cabin and retractable landing gear

Dauntless

Thumbnail
The Northrop BT-1 provided the basis for the SBD Dauntless, which began manufacture in 1940. Ed Heinemann led a team of designers who considered a development with a 1,000 horsepower Wright Cyclone powerplant. A year earlier, both the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps had placed orders for the new dive bombers, designated the SBD-1 and SBD-2 (the latter had increased fuel capacity and different armament).

DFS Invasion Glider

Thumbnail
Eight DFS 230 gliders, carrying 85 Pioneers under Leutnant Rudolf Witzig, landed on the roof of the Belgian fort of Eben Emael in the early hours of May 10, 1940. There had been no declaration of war, and they achieved surprise. Using the new shaped charges, they disabled the fort's guns and trapped the garrison inside. The assault cost only 21 casualties.

Douglas Devastator

Thumbnail
This American torpedo bomber is remembered mostly for a tragic reason - the Douglas TBD Devastator fell in flames at Midway, where an entire squadron was lost in a matter of minutes. The Devastator was perfectly acceptable aircraft by prewar standards, but it came on the scene when change was occurring rapidly. By the time men and machines were pitted in combat in the Pacific, the TBD was no longer an effective warplane. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Flettner-282

Thumbnail
In Germany, Anton Flettner developed a series of helicopters using counter-rotating intermeshing rotors. In 1942, the two seat Fl 282 Kolibri ("Humming Bird") became the first helicopter anywhere to enter operational military service. It was the most advanced helicopter developed during WWII. Thanks to Aaron for distilling this pretty complex piece of machinery into a relatively easy cardmodel.
$5.50

Flying Jeep

Thumbnail
One of the many experiments undertaken in World War II to increase battlefield mobility by the provision of rotary wings for men and vehicles, the Hafner Rotabuggy was intended as a stepping-stone to a flying Valentine tank.
$9.95

Flying-Tank-A40

Thumbnail
Built around the lightweight T-60 Soviet Tank, the Antonov A-40 KT barely got off the ground....If there would have been a powerful enough tow plane it may have been successful. The development of large gliders and transports put an end to the Antonov A-40 KT. Kit includes both version of the T-60 tank. With a little ballast in the nose of the tank, this beauty actually FLIES !!
$6.50

FW-190

Thumbnail
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger, was a German, single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the 1930s. It was used by the Luftwaffe during the Second World War. It partially replaced the Messerschmitt Bf 109 in 1941. Over 20,000 were manufactured, including around 6,000 fighter-bomber models.
$5.50

Gloster-E28

Thumbnail
The first British Jet aircraft powered by the new fangled Whittle W1 centrifugal engine. It flew brilliantly but the Germans had already been there-done that but a year and a half earlier. The first German jet, the Heinkel He-178 is available. Tthe American P-59 will join the Jets Collection ASAP.

Grumman Duck

Thumbnail
The Grumman F2F was a single-engine, biplane fighter aircraft with retractable undercarriage, serving as the standard fighter for the United States Navy between 1936 and 1940. It was designed for both carrier- and land-based operations.
N/A

Grumman F3F

Thumbnail
A natural development of the FF1 two-seat naval fighter of 1931, which Grumman proposed, was a single-seat fighter, the F2F, in 1932. The larger F3F followed in 1934 and this was destined to be the last biplane fighter ordered by the Navy for deliver in 1937-38. These tubby biplanes, with their characteristic retractable landing gear (a Grumman patented design), were to keep the biplane era alive in the American fleet until 1940. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.
$5.50

Grumman Hellcat

Thumbnail
The Grumman F6F Hellcat was a carrier-based fighter aircraft developed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat in United States Navy service. Although the F6F bore a family resemblance to the Wildcat, it was a completely new design powered by a 2,000 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800. Some tagged it as the "Wildcat's big brother"
$5.50

Grumman Wildcat

Thumbnail
Grumman's first monoplane and one of the outstanding Naval fighters of World War II, the F4F design began in 1935 while the company's latest biplane for the USN. Production of the F4F-3 totaled 285, all by Grumman. A contemporary of the Japanese Zero.
$5.95

Hawker Hurricane

Thumbnail
With economy in mind, the Hurricane was designed using as many existing tools and jigs as possible (the aircraft was effectively a monoplane version of the successful Hawker Fury); and it was these factors that were major contributors to the aircraft's success.
$8.95

Hawker Typhoon

Thumbnail
An interceptor that failed, the Hawker Typhoon was nearly canceled before it blossomed in the finest close support aircraft of World War II. With its pugnacious snub nose, four long-barreled cannon and whining Sabre engine, the big fighter-bomber wreaked havoc on its foes. Ranging far and wide over the battlefields of northwest Europe, swarms of Typhoons made an indelible mark on the history of warfare. Comes in Camo & BW plus two sizes
$5.95

Heinkel-178

Thumbnail
The Heinkel He 178 was the world's first aircraft to fly under turbojet power, and the first practical jet plane. It beat the Whittle powered Gloster E28 by about a year and a half. The He-178 was just a testbed and flew only a couple times. The Gloster E28 model is also in the Fiddlersgreen Collection (see above) Display stands included
$5.50

Helldiver

Thumbnail
The Curtiss SB2C Helldiver was an carrier-based dive bomber aircraft produced for the United States Navy during World War II. It replaced the Douglas SBD Dauntless in US Navy service. Despite its size, the SB2C was much faster than the SBD it replaced.
$5.95

Horsa Invasion Glider

Thumbnail
Use of assault gliders by the British was prompted by the use by Germany of the DFS 230, which was first used in May 1940 to successfully assault the Eben Emael fort in Belgium. Their advantage compared to parachute assault was that the troops were landed together.
$5.50

Horten HO 229

Thumbnail
The German government was funding glider clubs at the time because production of military aircraft was forbidden by the Treaty of Versailles after World War I. The flying wing layout removes any "unneeded" surfaces and, in theory at least, leads to the lowest possible drag. The H0-229 evolved from the Ho-IX and is just one a whole series of Fiddlersgreen flying wings. Easy model to build and great hanging from your ceiling !!! B&W version not avail
$5.95

Horten Ho-IV

Thumbnail
Perhaps the most impressive and graceful flying wing sailplane ever! Two sizes, with the largest having a wing span of 38 inches. Several versions. Includes Towing Jeep, and Horten Brothers Cutouts.
$5.95

Horten IX glider

Thumbnail
The first Ho IX V1, which was an unpowered glider that first flew on 1 March 1944. It was followed in December 1944 by the Jumo 004-powered version 2. Göring believed in the design and ordered a production series of 40 aircraft at Gotha with the RLM designation Ho 229. (see above) The war's end altered his plan somewhat.
$5.95

Huckebein

Thumbnail
Some sources say that the famous Soviet MiG-15 was at least inspired by the Ta 183 because the Soviets captured plans and prototypes for the Ta 183 from the Germans at the end of World War II. The MiG-15 shared the general layout of high tailplane, bubble canopy, and nose mounted intake and guns.
$5.50

Junkers JU-87

Thumbnail
The Junkers Ju 87 or Stuka (from Sturzkampfflugzeug, "dive bomber") was a two-seat (pilot and rear gunner) German ground-attack aircraft of World War II. Designed by Hermann Pohlmann, the Stuka first flew in 1935 and made its combat début in 1936 as part of the Luftwaffe's Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War.
$15.95

Junkers-Ju52

Thumbnail
It flew with well over a dozen air carriers including Swissair and Lufthansa as an airliner and freight hauler. In a military role, it flew with the Luftwaffe as a troop and cargo transport and briefly as a medium bomber. The Ju 52 continued in postwar service with military and civilian air fleets well into the 1980s.
$5.95

Kingfisher

Thumbnail
Of the several observation and scouting airplanes available to the Navy when the US entered World War II, the VS-310 Kingfisher was to prove the most useful and the most used predominately as "eyes" for the big guns of the battleships and cruisers and for rescue work.
$5.95

Lippisch P-13a

Thumbnail
As conventional fuels were in extremely short supply by late 1944, Lippisch proposed that the P.13a be powered by coal. Initially, it was proposed that a wire-mesh basket holding coal be mounted behind a nose air intake, protruding slightly into the airflow and ignited by a gas burner.
$5.50

Lippisch-DM1

Thumbnail
The Lippisch DM-1 was an unpowered glider designed to test the low speed handling of the to be developed Lippisch P.13a. The glider itself was externally similar to the P.13a, with a large delta wing and half delta vertical stabilizer, which housed the cockpit.
$4.95

Me-209 Racer

Thumbnail
Messerschmitt's designation Me 209 was used for two separate projects during the late 1930s and early 1940s. The first, described below, was a record-setting single-engined race plane for which little or no consideration was given to adaptation for combat.
$5.95

Messerschmitt Me-109

Thumbnail
The Bf 109 was the most successful fighter of World War II, shooting down more aircraft than any of its contemporaries. Originally conceived as an interceptor, it was later developed to fulfill multiple tasks, serving as bomber escort, fighter bomber, day, night, all-weather fighter, bomber destroyer, ground-attack aircraft, and as reconnaissance aircraft. 1/12-19
$12.95

Messerschmitt Me-109 Collection

Thumbnail
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was designed by Willy Messerschmitt in the early 1930s. It was one of the first true modern fighters of the era, including such features as an all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. The Bf 109 was produced in greater quantities than any other fighter aircraft in history, with a total of 33,984 units produced up to April 1945. 12 versions as of 11/10
$5.95

Messerschmitt Me-163 Komet

Thumbnail
Operations began in 1944. As expected, the aircraft was extremely fast, and for a time the Allied fighters were at a complete loss as what to do about it. Singly or in pairs, the Komets attacked, often faster than the opposing fighters could dive in an attempt to intercept them.
$4.95

Messerschmitt ME-263

Thumbnail
The Messerschmitt Me 263 was a rocket-powered fighter aircraft developed from the Messerschmitt Me 163 towards the end of World War II. Three prototypes were built but never flown under their own power as the rapidly deteriorating military situation in Germany prevented the completion of the test program.
$34.95

Messerschmitt Me-321 Gigant

Thumbnail
Me-321 Gigant WWII Cargo Glider. Kit includes 1 Panzer Tank, 1 Opel Blitz truck and even the powered Me-323 version. Arguably, the largest AC card model ever with a wingspan of over 4 feet!! NOT difficult to build but figure on a week to finish
N/A

Messerschmitt Me210/Me410

Thumbnail
The Me 210 was designed as a potential successor to the Bf 110, and RLM approval of the project in 1937 was followed on 5 September 1939 by the first flight of the twin-finned Me 210V1 prototype. This aircraft showed marked instability in flight, and attempts to remedy this resulted in a large-area single fin and rudder being introduced on the second machine. This still did not eliminate all the Me 210's control problems, but the RLM had committed itself to a substantial order for one thousand aircraft of this type before the first prototype had flown. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.
$7.50

Messerschmitt-Me262

Thumbnail
Sleek and deadly..The Messerschmitt Me 262. During WWII's final two years this gas turbine-powered M2-262 was the great white hope of the Luftwaffe's Fighter Force. Far faster than any allied fighter type, with its powerful armament, it promised to be a potent bomber destroyer. Yet in combat, the revolutionary jet made little impact in any role. 1/12-15 1/20-16
$5.95

MiG-3 fighter

Thumbnail
This is a model of the under-appreciated early WWII Russian MiG-3.The Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-3 was a Soviet fighter aircraft used during World War II. It replaced the MiG-1 on the production line on 20 December 1940 and was built in large numbers during 1941 before the one factory that manufactured it was converted to produce the Ilyushin Il-2 later that year.
$5.50

Mitsubishi-Claude

Thumbnail
The Mitsubishi A5M a Japanese carrier based fighter aircraft. It was the world's first monoplane shipboard fighter and the direct ancestor of the famous Mitsubishi A6M 'Zero'. The Allied code-name was Claude; the Japanese Navy designation was "Type 96 carrier-based fighter"

North American P-82 Twin Mustang

Thumbnail
Flying in formation with itself... The immense distances between islands in the Pacific Theater required a fighter type that could fly for hours between islands, yet have its pilot fresh for combat at any time. The North American solution was its P-82 Twin Mustang. Unique concept.

P-38 Lightning

Thumbnail
The US heavy hitter in the WWII Pacific Theater. With drop tanks under its wings,the P-38 was used most successfully in the Pacific Theater of Operations and the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations where it enabled two airmen to achieve the highest-ever per pilot tally of American aerial victories.
$5.50

P-47 Thunderbolt

Thumbnail
The P-47 was effective in air combat but proved especially adept at ground attack. It had eight .50-caliber machine guns, four per wing. When fully loaded the P-47 could weigh up to eight tons. A modern-day counterpart in that role, the A-10 Thunderbolt II, takes its name from the P-47.
$5.95

Panzer Tank

Thumbnail
The Panzer III was a tank developed in the 1930s by Germany and used extensively in World War II but It soon became obsolete in this role and for most purposes was replaced by up-gunned Panzer IVs, though some would continue to be used for infantry support until late in the war. This tank model is included FREE with the Me-321 Gigant Transport Glider.

Piper TG-8

Thumbnail
Want to train thousands of glider pilots, literally overnight? Put them into Piper Cubs, Aeroncas and Taylorcraft and make them practice gliding and landing with power off. Then graduate them to training gliders made over Cubs without engines. That's what the U.S. did in WW II, and It Worked! Then they developed actual gliders based on these light aircraft such as the Piper TG-8 Training Glider. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Piper-L4-Grasshopper

Thumbnail
The Piper L-4 was basically, the all familiar Piper J3 Cub with more overhead windows allowing the pilot to check for traffic directly over the aircraft with minimal effort. It was used in the European and Pacific theaters doing any job assigned. In a few cases, they were actually credited with destroying enemy fighters. The folder ALSO includes a second model.. the Air Ambulance in two scales.

Spitfire

Thumbnail
There was, and still is, a public perception that it was the RAF fighter of the Battle although the more numerous Hurricane actually shouldered a greater proportion of the burden against the potent Luftwaffe.
$5.95

Triebflugel X-plane

Thumbnail
It had no wings, and all lift and thrust were provided by a rotor/propeller assembly in the middle of the craft. When the plane was sitting on its tail in the vertical position the rotors would have functioned similarly to a helicopter. When flying horizontally they would function more like a giant propeller.
$5.95

V-1 Missile

The V-1 Doodlebug has been completely re-drawn.. The first design was done by hand in 1987 way-back in the computer dark ages. This one has BW and 4 other versions including the manned Reichesberg V1
$4.95

Vindicator

Thumbnail
The XSB2U-1 was of conventional low-wing tailwheel monoplane configuration, with the pilot and tail gunner seated in tandem under a long greenhouse-style canopy. Its only remarkable design feature was a propeller with reversible pitch, allowing it to be used to brake the aircraft during a dive bombing attack.

Vought XF5U Flying Pancake

Thumbnail
It is a great disappointment that the Vought XF5U-1 "Flying Pancake" never flew. When a test prototype, the V-173, took to the air it was unique. The XF5U-1 was based on a wing of circular shape, which was also the 'fuselage'. Designed to be capable of vertical take-off and landing, as well as very high-speed flight. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.
$7.50

Vought-Corsair-F4U

Thumbnail
The Vought F4U Corsair, at first, was unable to land on a carrier but with precise training along with new techniques it became possible. The unique 'gull' shaped wing provided clearance for the massive prop swung by a massive engine. This was a true hero in the WWII Pacific theatre. 1/13-56
$7.50

WACO CG-4 Invasion Glider

Thumbnail
The CG-4A found favor where its small size was a benefit; the CG-4A could land in smaller spaces than larger capacity aircraft. In addition, by using a fairly simple net system, an in-flight C-47 equipped with a tail hook could "pick up" a CG-4A waiting on the ground.
$5.95

YAK-3

Thumbnail
The Yakovlev Yak-3 (Russian: Як-3) was a World War II Soviet fighter aircraft regarded as one of the best fighters of the war. It was one of the smallest and lightest major combat fighters fielded by any combatant during the war, and its high power-to-weight ratio gave it excellent performance.
$6.25

Yokosuka Ohka

Thumbnail
It was a manned flying bomb that was usually carried underneath bombers to within range of its target; on release, the pilot would first glide toward the target and when close enough he would fire the Ohka's rocket engine and guide the missile towards the ship that he intended to destroy. (FYI, 'Ohka' translates to Cherry Blossom)
$5.95

Zero

Thumbnail
The pre-series A6M2 Zero became known in 1940-41, when the fighter destroyed 266 confirmed aircraft in China. At the time of Pearl Harbor, there were 420 Zeros active in the Pacific. The carrier-borne Model 21 was the type encountered by the Americans, often much further from its carriers than expected, with a mission range of over 1600 statute miles.
