Oxford Aviation Diecast Military Aircraft

Both high quality and value priced, these detailed reproductions of World War II's most famous Allied and Axis fighters and attack planes feature finely textured surfaces, a well-equipped cockpit with a glazed canopy, authentic markings, and a customized display stand with information on the plane and pilot. The range presently includes 14 different aircraft with 8 more anticipated to launch within the next several weeks. As great as that is, though, here's the really amazing part: when we say 14 different aircraft, we mean 14 different aircraft! That's right: none of the 14 are re-paints, and none of the 8 will be, either. Oxford Diecast is focused on making great aircraft but does not plan to issue second paint schemes for any of its aircraft in the short-term. With Oxford Diecast, every model is unique.

Nicknamed the "Jug", the P-47D was one of the most important, widely produced fighter of the American Air Force during the WWII. Although the P-47D was the largest and heaviest single-seat aircraft to see service in the Second World War, it became a high speed and high altitude capable fighter when powered by the huge 2000hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800 "Double Wasp" engine and a unique supercharging system.

Royal Navy Fairey Swordfish Mk. I Torpedo Plane - HMS Furious, Narvik, 1940 Royal Navy Fairey Swordfish Mk. I Torpedo Plane - HMS Furious, Narvik, 1940 (1:72 Scale)

The Fairey Swordfish was a torpedo bomber built by the Fairey Aviation Company and used by the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy during World War II. Affectionately known as the Stringbag by its crews, it was outdated by 1939, but achieved some spectacular successes during the war, such as the destruction of the Regia Marina (the Italian Navy) in Taranto and the famous crippling of the German battleship Bismarck.

RAF Supermarine Spitfire Mk. I Fighter - 57 OTU (Operational Training Unit), RAF Hawarden, March 1942 RAF Supermarine Spitfire Mk. I Fighter - 57 OTU (Operational Training Unit), RAF Hawarden, March 1942 (1:72 Scale)

The Spitfire is the most famous British aircraft of all time. Although less numerous than the Hawker Hurricane, it is remembered as the sleek, thoroughbred fighting machine that turned the tide during the Battle of Britain. The Spitfire was among the fastest and most maneuverable prop-driven fighters of World War II, serving in virtually every combat theater.

RAF Hawker Hurricane Mk. I Fighter - 11 Group, 6 OUT, Sutton Bridge, England, 1940 RAF Hawker Hurricane Mk. I Fighter - 11 Group, 6 OUT, Sutton Bridge, England, 1940 (1:72 Scale)

The Hawker Hurricane was the first monoplane to join the Royal Air Force as a fighter aircraft, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 300-mph in level flight. Often compared with the sleek-looking Supermarine Spitfire, the Hurricane, in actuality, shouldered the brunt of the fighting during the "Battle of Britain", equipping more than three-fifths of the RAF's Fighter Command squadrons.

RAF Chance-Vought Corsair III Fighter - 718 Squadron, FAA Ballyhalbert, NI, 1945 RAF Chance-Vought Corsair III Fighter - 718 Squadron, FAA Ballyhalbert, NI, 1945 (1:72 Scale)

Its gull-wing shape made it instantly recognizeable. Its characteristic sound while in an attack dive led the Japanese to call it "The Whistling Death." Combined with its high speed, agility and toughness, the Vought F4U Corsair was one of the finest fighters ever built.

RAF Bell P-39Q Airacobra Fighter - No. 601 Squadron County of London, Duxford, England, October 1941 RAF Bell P-39Q Airacobra Fighter - No. 601 Squadron "County of London", Duxford, England, October 1940 (1:72 Scale)

The P-39 was one of America's first-line pursuit planes in December 1941. It made its initial flight in April 1939 at Wright Field and by the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, nearly 600 had been built. Its unique engine location behind the cockpit caused some pilot concern, but this proved to be no more of a hazard in a crash landing than with an engine located forward of the cockpit.

American Volunteer Group Curtiss P-40 Warhawk Fighter - Robert Neale, 1st Squadron Commander American Volunteer Group Curtiss P-40 Warhawk Fighter - Robert Neale, 1st Squadron Commander (1:72 Scale)

The P-40 was the best known Curtiss-Wright designed airplane of the Second World War. It was also one of the most controversial fighters, vilified by many as being too slow, lacking in maneuverability, having too low a climbing rate, and being largely obsolescent by contemporary standards even before it went into production.

The "Mossie," as it was known affectionately by its British crews, was both simple in construction and design. It was a twin engine, single boom aircraft that placed the pilot and navigator in a side-by-side sitting configuration. The Mosquito was one of the most cost effective aircraft ever built because it was constructed out of wood.

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.
