    Fighter Aircraft Collection

    Fighter Aircraft Collection is a fortnightly, must-have collection of highly-detailed die-cast models (in 1:72 and 1:100 scales) featuring the fighting machines of the aces.





    Free with each model is a fact-filled magazine that builds into an encyclopedia of Fighter Aircraft, telling you all you need to know about the legends, their histories, pilot stories and much more.



    (My collection is mostly WW1 and WW2 Planes and in 1:72 scale only. As such there would be some skipped issues. These planes are die-cast models and one can feel the weight of these metal planes holding them in your hands or displaying them in your cabinets !)

    The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during and after the Second World War. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations, and was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft.

    Designed as a short-range, high-performance interceptor aircraft, the development of the Spitfire's distinctive elliptical wing with the thinnest possible cross-section enabled this fighter aircraft to have a higher top speed than several contemporary fighters of its time.

    The Messerschmitt Bf 109, commonly called the Me 109 is a German World War II fighter aircraft . It was one of the first truly modern fighters of the era, including such features as all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. It was powered by a liquid-cooled, inverted-V12 aero engine.

    The Bf 109 first saw operational service during the Spanish Civil War and was still in service at the dawn of the jet age at the end of World War II, during which time it was the backbone of the Luftwaffe's fighter force. The Bf 109 was the most produced fighter aircraft in history, with a total of 33,984 airframes produced from 1936 up to April 1945.

    The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and other conflicts.

    The Mustang was originally designed to use the Allison V-1710 engine, which had limited high-altitude performance. The addition of the Rolls-Royce Merlin to the P-51B/C model transformed the Mustang's performance at altitudes above 15,000 ft, matching or bettering that of the Luftwaffe's fighters.

    The Hawker Hurricane is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force (RAF). Although overshadowed by the Supermarine Spitfire, the aircraft became renowned during the Battle of Britain, accounting for 60% of the RAF's air victories in the battle, and served in all the major theatres of the Second World War.

    It was the first fighter monoplane to join the Royal Air Force and was present in greater numbers than the Spitfire. However, the war kept catching up with the Hurricane - it slowly became obsolete as a front line fighter against the German Luftwaffe.




    The Battle of Britain was the first major campaign to be fought entirely by air forces. The British were using Spitfires and Hurricanes and the Germans the BF109 fighters.


    The Spitfire is tops for glamour and romance but in fact it was the Hurricane that was the real No. 1 fighter plane in the Battle of Britain. Though slower than the Spitfire, the Hurricane developed a reputation as a plane that could take more than a few hits from the Germans and continue to fly.











    To some the Spitfire was a thoroughbred horse; superb until it was damaged. The Hurricane, though less graceful and slower than the Spitfire, was more a shire horse; incredibly strong and capable of taking many hits before it was taken out.

    The fact that the Hurricane was responsible for more enemy aircraft destroyed is eclipsed by the Spitfire’s graceful silhouette and romantic legend. Glamour usually outshines performance, in war as in love.

    ISSUE 11 - Mitsubishi A6M Rei-sen Zero (Japan) - 1942




















    The Mitsubishi A6M was the most famous Japanese aircraft of World War 2. When it first entered service, no other carrier-based fighter could match its range and manoeurvability and the type quickly gained a reputation as a deadly dogfighter. However, as the conflict progressed Allied pilots were given the machinery to take on the Zero and win. Although it was outdated by 1944, in the course of the conflict more Zeros were built than any other Japanese aircraft.

    The Mitsubishi A6M Zero is a long-range fighter aircraft, manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, and operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy from 1940 to 1945. When it was introduced early in World War II, the Zero was considered the most capable carrier-based fighter in the world, combining excellent maneuverability and very long range. It is also as a land-based fighter.

    In early combat operations, the Zero gained a legendary reputation as a dogfighter, achieving the outstanding kill ratio of 12 to 1, but by mid-1942 a combination of new tactics and the introduction of better equipment enabled the Allied pilots to engage the Zero on generally equal terms.

    By 1943, inherent design weaknesses and the failure to develop more powerful aircraft engines meant that the Zero became less effective against newer enemy fighters, which possessed greater firepower, armor, and speed, and approached the Zero's maneuverability.

    Commanded by Maj Walter Nowotny, Erprobungskommando (Testing-Command) 262 was the world's first front-line jet fighter unit. On November 8, 1944, after claiming victories against a B-24 Liberator and a P-51 Mustang, Nowotny radioed in and reported a failing engine. His final transmission was "Just made the third kill... left jet failed... been attacked again... been hit" Adolf Galland was among the witnesses that saw Nowotny's Me 262 "White 8" dive vertically out of the clouds and crash. During his career, Major Walter Nowotny achieved 258 aerial victories.

    The Messerschmitt Me 262 was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. Design work started before World War II began, but engine problems and top-level interference kept the aircraft from operational status with the Luftwaffe until mid-1944.

    Heavily armed, it was faster than any Allied fighter, The Me 262 was used in a variety of roles, including light bomber, reconnaissance, and even experimental night fighter versions.

    The Grumman F6F Hellcat was a carrier-based fighter aircraft designed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat in United States Navy (USN) service. Although the F6F resembled the F4F in some ways, it was a completely new design powered by a 2,000 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800, the same powerplant used for both the Corsair and the United States Army Air Force's (USAAF) Republic P-47 Thunderbolt fighters. Some military observers tagged the Hellcat as the "Wildcat's big brother".

    The F6F was best known for its role as a rugged carrier fighter which was able, after its combat debut in early 1943, to counter the Mitsubishi A6M Zero and help secure air superiority over the Pacific Theater. Such was the quality of the basic simple, straightforward design that a total of 12,200 F6F were built in just over two years span.

    The Bristol Bulldog was a British Royal Air Force single-seat biplane fighter designed during the 1920s by the Bristol Aeroplane Company. Over 400 Bulldogs were produced for the RAF and overseas customers, and it was one of the most famous aircraft used by the RAF during the inter-war period.

    The pilot was provided an oxygen supply for operations in high altitudes and even a short-wave two-way radio for communications. In many ways, these two additions were a glimpse into the future of military aviation and were noted collectively as quite the innovation. Optional armament included were 4 x 20lb bombs held under the wings.
