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.

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.

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 Dauntless was the standard shipborne dive-bomber of the US Navy from mid-1940 until November 1943, when the first Curtiss Helldivers arrived to replace it. Between 1942-43, the Dauntless was pressed into service again and again, seeing action in the Battle of the Coral Sea and the Guadalcanal campaign.

The F6F embodied the early lessons learned by users of Grumman's previous fleet-defense fighter, the Wildcat. In June 1941, Grumman lowered the wing center section to enable the undercarriage to be wider splayed, fitting more armor-plating around the cockpit to protect the pilot while also increasing the fighter's ammunition capacity.

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. As the bombers of the Eighth Air Force fought their way deep into Hitler's Germany, it was the Mustang that cleared the skies of Luftwaffe fighters.

German Messerschmitt Me 163B-0 Komet Rocket-Powered Fighter - White 54-14, Jagdgeschwader 400, Niemcy, Germany, 1945 German Messerschmitt Me 163B-0 Komet Rocket-Powered Fighter - White 54-14, Jagdgeschwader 400, Niemcy, Germany, 1945 (1:72 Scale)

The Me 163 Komet, designed by Alexander Martin Lippisch, was the only operational rocket-powered fighter aircraft during the Second World War. Although revolutionary and capable of performance unrivalled at the time, it proved ineffective as a fighter and resulted in the destruction of very few Allied aircraft.

German Junkers Ju-87B Stuka Dive-Bomber - T6+DP 6, Sturzkampgeschwader 2 Immelmann, Libya, 1941 German Junkers Ju-87B Stuka Dive-Bomber - T6+DP 6, Sturzkampgeschwader 2 Immelmann, Libya, 1941 (1:72 Scale)

During the early to mid-stages of the Second World War, the Stuka (short for "sturzkampfflugzeug" or dive-bomber) struck terror in the hearts and minds of soldiers and civilians alike. The Stuka was a rugged machine, designed to swoop down and destroy its target using 500-lb bombs or tear into them using 37mm flak guns mounted underneath the wings.

USAAF Lockheed P-38J Lightning Interceptor - "Little Buckaroo", Major Robert "Buck" Rogers, 392nd Fighter Squadron "Dynamite Gang", 367th Fighter Group, France, 1944 USAAF Lockheed P-38J Lightning Interceptor - "Little Buckaroo", Major Robert "Buck" Rogers, 392nd Fighter Squadron "Dynamite Gang", 367th Fighter Group, France, 1944 (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.
