Airfix Series 1 - 1:72 - Curtis Tomahawk Mk.IIB
Airfix Series 1 - 1:72 - Curtis Tomahawk Mk.IIB

With the Hurricanes and Spitfires of the RAF being needed for home defence duties, the arrival of large numbers of American Curtiss Tomahawk fighters allowed older aircraft to be replaced in North Africa and the Middle East. Able to withstand significant battle damage, the Tomahawk was to see extensive service in these theatres and pose a considerable threat to their Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica adversaries. Not generally regarded as one of the most accomplished fighter aircraft of the Second World War, the Curtiss Tomahawk series proved absolutely crucial during the first two years of the conflict. Built to an extremely high standard and in full scale production at the outbreak of war, the Tomahawk was made available to overseas air forces, allowing an immediate increase in their aircraft strength and taking the pressure of their indigenous manufacturing programmes. Effectively, the new Curtiss fighter allowed the Royal Air Force to continue fighting on a number of fronts, without placing an increased burden on their existing forces. Serving in the deserts of North Africa and in the Middle East, RAF and Commonwealth Tomahawks eventually went on to equip sixteen Squadrons, forcing the Luftwaffe to commit more aircraft to these theatres. In the hands of a capable pilot, the Tomahawk was a match for most of the Axis aircraft it could potentially meet in combat. Scheme - Aircraft flown by Squadron Leader Peter Wykeham-Barnes, No.73 Squadron, Royal Air Force, El Gamil, Egypt, 1941. Colour and contents of products may vary from those illustrated

Manufacturer Information

Most people have heard of Airfix and a lot of non-modellers only know plastic kits as 'Airfix Kits' (similar to 'Hoover' and vacuum cleaners). Although they had some serious financial troubles last year Airfix have been bought by Hornby who are striving to re-establish the name and create some new models for year. New Releases include the much anticipated Nimrod as well as 4 variants of the Canberra and an assortment of Airfield sets including the RAF and Luftwaffe.

Airfix are a good choice for beginners as they make 'starter sets' that contain everything required to complete the model (glues, brushes and paints), This is a much cheaper option than buying everything separately. Quality is not great on most of their kits as tooling tends to be old but again for beginners this is not so much of an issue.
