AA39915sm.jpg Boeing B17F 'Ye Olde Pub' & Bf-109G 2 pc set. On 20th December 1943 2nd Lt. Charlie Brown embarked upon his first mission over enemy territory, the bombing of the Focke-Wulf factory at Bremen. While the route to the target was relatively routine, once over it the mission ran into problems. Accurate flak smashed the Plexiglas nose, knocked out the number 2 engine and damaged engine number 4. Brown was forced to slow the bomber, dropping out of formation and becoming a straggler, a very vulnerable position for the aircraft. The bomber then came under sustained enemy fighter attacks, number 3 engine was damaged along with the internal oxygen, hydraulic and electrical systems and only the dorsal turret and one nose gun were still serviceable. Of the crew, most were injured, Brown had been shot in the shoulder and the tail gunner had been killed. The final fighter to intercept the plane was flown by Franz Stigler, who, upon seeing the damage to the B17 and the wounded crew visible inside through the holes, decided not to shoot them down. Instead, after failing to persuade them to land, he escorted them to the coast, at which point Stigler saluted and flew home. Brown landed safely but was told to tell no one of the German?s actions. Both Stigler and Brown survived the war and in the late 1980s Brown tracked down Stigler discovering that he lived just a few hundred miles from him, having moved to Vancouver after the war. They met in late 1990 and remained friends until their deaths just a few months apart in 1998. Limited To 1700 Worldwide!! 1/72 495.00 LIMITED STOCK

AA35312sm.jpg NA B-25 Mitchell - Tokyo Raid Doolittle Raiders Ruptured Duck One of the sixteen North American B-25 Mitchell medium bombers that took part in the famous Doolittle Raid of 1942, 'The Ruptured Duck,' along with Doolittle's own aircraft is one of the best known of the aircraft that took part. Conceived as a way to boost the morale of a nation still reeling from the attack on Pearl Harbour, the Doolittle Raid consisted of the USAAF flying a number of B-25 Medium bombers off an aircraft carrier close to Japan, bombing Tokyo and then flying on to land in China. While material damage would be slight, the effect on morale back in America, and detrimentally in Japan, would be huge.'The Ruptured Duck' got its name from scraping its rear fuselage on the runway during training. After bombing Tokyo the aircraft flew on to China where it crashed into the sea near Shangchow. All of the crew survived, though the pilot Lt. Ted Lawson lost a leg in the ditching. 1/72 195.00 LIMITED STOCK

AA35313sm.jpg APRIL 2017 RELEASE: North American B-25B Mitchell, 40-2249, ""Hari Kari-er"", Doolittle Raid, 1942 1:72, Limited Edition Of 1556 Units WorldWide. As the USS Hornet task force approached the Japanese coast, they were spotted by an enemy ship and decided to launch their aircraft early. Just after 8am on 18th April 1942, sixteen B-25 bombers lifted off the relatively short deck of USS Hornet and set course for Japan – this would be the first time that any of these airmen had taken off from the deck of an aircraft carrier at sea. Flying at extremely low level, the raiders had a six-hour flight ahead of them before reaching their targets, almost certain that they would be intercepted by enemy fighters. If they managed to complete their mission, they would then fly on to China, but it would be very much a case of every man for himself. 1/72 119.95 PRE-ORDER DUE APRIL 2017

AA35908Asm.jpg Sikorsky UH-60L, 'Blackhawk Down' Super-Six One, Operation Gothic Serpent, Mogadishu 1993.In August 1993 the Joint Special Operations Command of the United States launched Operation Gothic Serpent. This was an initiative designed to remove warlord Mohamed Farrah Aidid from power in Mogadishu. A raid to arrest two of his senior advisors was launched on the 3rd October. However, the raid was to go down in history as a failure. Not only did Aidid escape but the American troops became surrounded in the city, casualties were taken and two UH-60L Blackhawks were lost. The mission was led by elements of the American Rangers and Delta Force, with some travelling into the city via armoured vehicles, while others were dropped from helicopters. The first UH60 to be lost was Super Six One, which was hit by a Rocket Propelled Grenade, and resulted in it crashing killing both pilots and left the crew severely wounded. The scene needed to be secured by two surviving Delta Force snipers. While the rescue was being organized, a second UH60 was hit by an RPG. Super Six Four crashed shortly after 4pm with the pilot Michael Durant being injured but conscious, the rest of his crew were also severely injured. Two Delta Force snipers were then inserted to provide cover, holding off the baying Somali mob for over twenty minutes before being killed. For their actions, MSG Gordon and SFC Shughart were posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, the first to be awarded since the Vietnam War. Durant was then badly beaten by the mob before being captured by Aidid’s militia. By 6:30AM the next morning the battle was over, UN forces with American assistance had rescued all of the besieged US troops, with only Durant remaining in captivity. He was released 11 days later. The action was a painful lesson for the United States, suffering a total of 18 men killed. 1/72 129.95 LIMITED STOCK

After serving defensive patrols in the opening chapters of World War Two the Squadron went on to cover the evacuation fleet at Dunkirk and flew missions over Northern France during May and June 1940. Pilot Officer Irving ‘Black’ Smith from New Zealand joined the Squadron in July 1940 and quickly became involved in the Battle of Britain during which he scored six kills. Smith went on to play a leading role in Operation Jericho, the RAF’s historic raid on the German prison at Amiens in February 1944, during which he piloted a de Havilland Mosquito IV.

AA27603sm.jpg JUNE 2016 RELEASE: Hawker Hurricane Mk.I V7357/SD-F, Sgt. J.H ‘Ginger’ Lacey, RAF No.501 Squadron, Gravesend, September 1940. The exploits of the glorious ‘Few’ during the Battle of Britain are the stuff of legend and standing right at the head of this illustrious group of men was James ‘Ginger’ Lacey, Hurricane pilot and proud son of Yorkshire. Flying throughout the Battle of Britain, Lacey was credited with eighteen aerial victories, making him the second highest scoring British fighter ace of the Battle – every one of these victories were gained whilst flying the trusty Hawker Hurricane. This latest Hurricane release is an essential addition to any Battle of Britain collection. The Hawker Hurricane is arguably the most important aircraft in the history of the Royal Air Force, specifically as it heralded the development of the modern, monoplane fighter. It combined the finest construction techniques already in place with the best biplane aircraft and was relatively easy to manufacture - the Hurricane was certainly the right aeroplane at the right time and in Britain’s hour of need, proved to be absolutely crucial. During the savage dogfights of the Battle of Britain, the Hurricane accounted for more Luftwaffe aircraft destroyed, than all other British aircraft combined. A magnificent gun platform, the Hurricane could also absorb significant battle damage and still bring its pilot home – this was critical in Britain’s eventual success and was rather reassuring for the Hurricane pilot. 1/72 49.95 LIMITED STOCK

AA39502sm.jpg Short Stirling Mk1 Spn Middleton VC, 1:72 Scale. Rawdon ‘Ron’ Middleton, born on the 22nd July 1916 in Sydney Australia, enlisted in the Royal Australian Airforce in October 1940. Middleton was posted to RAF 149 Squadron in 1942 starting as a second pilot before being given command of his own Stirling later that year. His first raid was to bomb the Fiat works at Turin. After a perilous flight across the alps the crew had to overfly the target three times at low level to identify it. In doing so the aircraft was badly damaged by flak and Middleton was seriously injured. Despite being injured Middleton supported his crew in re-directing the aircraft back to Britain promising to get his crew home. When they reached the English coast he ordered the crew to bail out then steered the aircraft into the sea to avoid endangering any civilians. Sadly his body was then later washed ashore. He was later posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for his devotion to duty. 1/72 199.95 LIMITED STOCK

On 2nd June 1943, with its famous call sign “N for Nuts” and piloted by Flight Lt. Colin Walker, it set out over the Bay of Biscay conducting a routine anti-submarine patrol. The crew had been ordered to look out for survivors of a KLM civil airliner when they came under fire by no fewer than eight Junkers JU 88s of the Luftwaffe’s 13/KG40 in what was to be the first of at least twenty separate attacks that would last forty-five minutes. The aircraft was severely damaged from the attacks, but it had a trick up its sleeve in its two 50. caliber machine guns and shot down at least three of the enemy aircraft before the crew navigated the dying plane back to Britain where they ditched just off the beach of Praa Sands.

AA31934Csm.jpg Great Escape Collection: Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb, AR298, Jens Muller. In the Spring of 1943 Squadron Leader Robert Bushell conceived a plan for a major escape with his fellow captives from the Stalag Luft III prisoner of war camp in the German province of Lower Silesia, now known as Zagan in Poland. The camp was originally an ‘officers only’ camp and held captured enemy airmen of the RAF and other allied airforces. The location of the camp was specifically selected as it was believed that it would be impossible to escape from by the means of tunnelling, Bushell thought otherwise. After almost a year of planning and the digging of several tunnels, on the night of the 24th March 1944 the escape took place. In all 76 men crawled through the tunnel and breached the outer fence of the camp, this amazing story inspired several writers and film makers. In 1963, the movie, ‘The Great Escape’ was released starring a host of famous actors including Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson and Richard Attenborough. 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the movie launch and the 70th anniversary of when the master escape plan was formed and the digging of the tunnels began. To commemorate this event in military history, Aviation Archive present the ‘Great Escape Collection’, the range features the aircraft in which the escapees flew before being captured. Bram Van Der Stok was not only the most decorated aviator in Dutch history, but also one of just three men to escape to freedom as a result of the ‘Great Escape’. Training as a pilot before the war, Van Der Stok claimed one Bf109 before the capitulation of the Netherlands. He made various attempts to escape to England before succeeding in getting to Scotland in 1941. Between February and April 1942 he claimed one confirmed Bf109 and damaged 3 others while flying with 41 and 91 Squadrons. On the 12th April 1942 Van Der Stok was shot down while flying Spitfire Mk.Vb BL595 and entered German captivity. He was the 18th man out of the camp on the night of the ‘Great Escape’ and crossed much of Europe before arriving in Spain. He arrived back in the UK on the 11th July 1944 having travelled through occupied Germany and France by train before crossing the Pyrenees. He then re-joined 91 Squadron and flew over Normandy during the D-Day landings. He continued flying up until the end of the war, latterly commanding the Dutch 322 Squadron. After the war he became a doctor, working with NASA during the 1970s. The Great Escape Collection AA31934 is available in three variants as part of the Great Escape Collection: •AA31934A Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb, BL595, Bram Van Der Stok, •AA31934B Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb, AB269, Per Bergsland, •AA31934C Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb, AR298, Jens Muller. 1/72 49.95 LIMITED STOCK

On the 9th July, 1940 this aircraft was shot down by elements of II./JG51 over the Channel and its pilot, Pilot Officer A.Evershed was killed.

Delivered to 92 Squadron on the 6th March 1940, the aircraft quickly found itself, along with the squadron, moved down to Croydon just south of London to cover the Allied evacuation of Dunkirk. It was on one such mission on 24th May 1940 that P9374 was lost. P/O Peter Cazenove was flying the aircraft when it was attacked by future ace Werner Hoffman flying a Bf110. Cazenove made a wheels up landing on a Calais beach and was quickly captured. The wreck lay on the beach covered by the sand until exposed due to a storm in September 1980. The aircraft looked more or less complete, with the engine and fuselage visible. The wreck was recovered towards the end of that year. The parts were passed around a number of collectors before ending up with the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford who finished the restoration, enabling it to take to the air for the first time since the 24th May 1940 on the 1st September 2011. Sadly Peter Cazenove, also a veteran of the 'Great Escape', passed away just days before he could be informed of the successful return to flight of his beloved Spitfire. 1/72 49.95 LIMITED STOCK

For young British pilots in the late 1940s, the most exciting and enigmatic aircraft that they could possibly hope to fly was the new Supermarine Spitfire. The absolute pinnacle of aviation technology at that time, the Spitfire was a thoroughbred in every sense of the word and simply a beautiful aeroplane to look at. Just a few short months after the Spitfire entered RAF service, it would be called upon to fight for the very survival of Britain and the free world, as swarms of Luftwaffe aircraft launched massed attacks against RAF airfields and strategic targets across southern England. The handsome Spitfire would have to bare its teeth and take on the feared Messerschmitt Bf 109! 1/72 49.95 LIMITED STOCK
