USAAF Lockheed P-38J Lightning Interceptor - Major Maurice McLary, 55th Fighter Squadron, 20th Fighter Group, RAF Wittering, England, 1943 USAAF Lockheed P-38 Lightning Interceptor (1:72 Scale)

It was fast, heavily armed and extremely versatile. And many believe the Lockheed P-38 Lightning  to be the finest American fighter of WWII. Its low-drag, aerodynamic shape and heavy weight enabled this twin-engine, twin-boomed aircraft to accelerate to high speeds faster than any previous warplane, making it a potent fighter and a superb fighter-bomber.

Imperial Japanese Army Aichi B7A2 Ryusei Grace Attack Aircraft Imperial Japanese Army Aichi B7A2 Ryusei "Grace" Attack Aircraft (1:72 Scale)

Dubbed the Allied code-name "Grace," the B7A2 Ryusei was the largest and heaviest Japanese carrier-based attack aircraft to fly in World War II. The Grace flew on shapely wings bent near midspan to provide clearance for a large propeller that spanned 3.5 m (11 ft). The Grace flew and handled as well as it looked, but the B7A2 never played a significant role in the Japanese war effort.

USAAF North American P-51D Mustang Fighter USAAF North American P-51D Mustang Fighter (1:72 Scale)

No other aircraft of WWII could fly as high, go as far, or fight as hard as the famed Mustang. Piloted by a record 281 Aces, this agile and ferocious dogfighter tallied more kills than any other Allied airplane.
