Description
The score is 100 to 0 and climbing

At 35 years old, the F-15 Eagle is one of the most venerable jet fighters in the USAF and one of the most venerated. Amongst the list of the fighter’s accolades is the fact that, over its entire operational history, no F-15 has ever been lost to enemy action. In fact the F-15 has over 100 kills for zero losses to aerial action. More than any other single factor, near-perfect maneuverability accounts for the Eagle’s supremacy. No respectable collection of fighter aircraft should be without this peerless fighter plane.

Length: 101 mm
Wingspan: 66 mm
Parts: 65

Description
Unlimited combat capabilities.

The F-16 ranks as one of the world’s most versatile fighter aircraft. It’s a multi-role combat system that’s as cost-effective as it is highly available. Consistent development has allowed the F-16’s mission profiles to expand over the years. The F-16C Block 50/52 – also known as the “Wild Weasel” – was built to counter enemy anti-air defenses. To do this, the F-16C is equipped with the AGM-88 HARM electronic target-acquisition system. The U.S. Air Force regularly adds other armaments, which are attached to the F-16C’s seven external weapons stations.

Scale: 1:72
Length: 253 mm
Wingspan: 187 mm
Parts: 97

Description
Build the best of the beasts

Despite its name, the Super Hornet has little in common with the original Hornet. The Super Hornet is 20% larger; it can carry more armaments and a wider variety of them. It can also be used as a refueling tanker. All those features mean that the Super Hornet has not only surpassed the Hornet, but also taken over the roles of several other Navy airplanes. This kit features detailed surfaces, cockpit, ejection seats and undercarriage, plus ECM pods and a wide selection of missiles and bombs.

 

P-39D Airacobra Plastic Model Kit

80-6649-lg

Product ID: 80-4868

Overview
Skill level: 3
Scale: 1:32
Length: 294 mm
Wingspan: 322 mm
Parts: 166

Description
Training, Initiative, Tenacity, Strategy

The Bell® Airacobra was an aggressively armed early war plane that was very different from most contemporary planes. Its engine was mounted behind the pilot to allow a 37 mm cannon to be placed in the nose. The P-39 found its niche in ground attack missions in the Pacific Theatre. Its main armament was devastating to ground targets and the unusual engine placement reduced the P-39’s vulnerability to ground fire. This kit features two decal marking options for the U.S.A.A.F. 8FG 36FS.

 

P-47N Thunderbolt Plastic Model Kit

80-6649-lg

Product ID: 80-4867

Overview
Skill level: 4

Length: 231 mm
Wingspan: 270 mm
Parts: 106

Description
Fly a WWII juggernaut

At nearly 10,000 lbs (4,536 kg) empty the P-47 Thunderbolt never should have gotten off the ground. But the Thunderbolt didn’t just fly, it was also able to defeat German and Japanese fighters. The model was even credited with downing several early jet-powered aircraft. This heavily-armored, eight .50 caliber MG-armed beast was upgraded so that the P-47N could escort B-29 bombers on 2,000 mile (3,220 km) raids. This kit features detailed surfaces, cockpit, undercarriage and 18-cylinder engine plus missiles, bombs and decals for two USAAF planes

Product ID: 80-6648

Overview
Skill level: 2

Length: 159 mm
Wingspan: 145 mm
Parts: 30

Description
Russia’s “Black Shark”

The Russian Ka-50 is the only single-seat attack helicopter in the world. Its combination of light weight, dual rotors and excellent navigational electronics make it fast and efficient. At the same time, its wide array of weapons make it ideal for ground support and it can be used for anti-air missions. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the production run for the Ka-50 was dropped from hundreds to under ten. Despite their limited numbers, the copter was used to great effect against Chechen Rebels in 2001.
