For more information on the De Haviland Vampire see our Aerodrome article.


The de Havilland Vampire was the second jet fighter to enter RAF service, coming after the Gloster Meteor.  Featuring a twin boom fuselage, which was to become a common feature of de Havilland designs, the Vampire proved a capable early jet fighter.  The Vampire T.11 trainer was developed from the fighter versions and served the RAF until 1967.  It was an excellent trainer and examples continue to fly today both in the UK and further afield.

Great Kit

This is a great kit with easy to follow instructions and very easy to build with high levels of detail. However the painting instructions on the rear of the packaging is miss leading as it looks like you have to paint the body of the plane with 56 not 11 paint.

T.11 Vampire

Nice kit but let down by unavailable spares. Can't finish the kit. Still this does include all you need to complete model to a reasonable standard.

DH Vampire FB.5 Conversion

As with all of Airfix's new tool releases the new Vampire is an outstanding kit. I bought 2 and decided to convert the first 1 into the Fighter-Bomber version(I did Airfix's original FB.5 from the late 1990's which I think was actually a shared Heller mould and was truly awful). Converting the fuselage back to the single seat configuration was the hardest part with losts of cutting, plastic card and filler. The cockpit interior was supplied from a new tool Folland Gnat with a canopy from the parts bin. After a further trim on the nose section I think I have faithfully represented the 'shark' like appearance. The under-wing rockets were supplied from an early Airfix Hawker Hunter F.6 kit and the decals came from the 1990's Airfix Vampire kit. Hopefully Airfix will upload my pictures so tell me what you think? ... Read more
