My 1/144 WWII Aircraft



A Lancaster is escorted home by little friends - from my 1/144 World War II aircraft collection. The Mosquitos were arguably the best heavy fighter/ light bomber/ night fighter/ strike intruder of WWII.



A Zero escorts a G4 Betty bomber. This bomber was called a Type One Lighter by Japanese pilots as the self sealing fuel tanks have been ripped out to save weight.


A Fiat BR20 encounters a Royal Navy Martlet (Wildcat). BR20 bombers launched a daylight raid on Harwich in the Battle of Britain, escorted only by CR42 biplane Fighters. The incredulous Hurricane pilots of Fighter Command handled them extremely roughly.
