Sorry, this item is out of stock


With the ability to mount patrols for up to twelve hours, the Rolls-Royce Griffon powered Avro Shackleton AEW.2 provided Britain's airborne early warning protection for almost 19 years. Following the withdrawal of HMS Ark Royal and her compliment of Gannet AEW aircraft, the Gannet's radar units were simply removed and attached under the forward fuselage of the new AEW version of the Shackleton. 


Introduced in 2019, the Hellcat is an aircraft carrier based WWII fighter � and our model allows you to build it in either ”flight' or ”stored' mode with the wings folded. Just check out the video of the model included with the product illustration at the top of this page. You'll dream of building this model whilst you await its arrival! Comprising over 600 pieces, this will involve you in developing lots of modelling skills as you gradually assemble each detail � want to create a fully detailed engine � Go Ahead! Maybe you want a nice cockpit � it's there in this kit for you! There are so many different options to choose from, you could easily make 3-4 models and have each appearing significantly differently once built. You will certainly find the time and effort repaid in this model � our designers estimate around 180 hours are required to build and finish this model to a high standard � showing what great value this kit and our hobby is.
