The subject of 'Presentation Spitfires' in the Second World War is a fascinating one and tells a story of national unity and a determination to fight back. In the latest edition of Aerodrome, we look at an interesting project which saw a chance discovery turn into a Lancashire town's determination to commemorate their efforts to fund a Spitfire during the war and a young local pilot who flew it in combat.

If the Spitfire is regarded as the most important British fighter aircraft at the beginning of the Second World War, its direct strike equivalent was the Wellington bomber.

 

In the latest edition of Workbench, we feature one of the iconic scheme options included with the forthcoming 1/72nd scale Vickers Wellington Mk.IA new tooling release, which presents modellers with one of Britain’s most historic aircraft.

 

Other highlights include an unusually flamboyant Falklands Sea King scheme and a review of the recent South West Model Show at Bovington Tank Museum.

The latest edition of Workbench celebrates a stunning European success for our fantastic 1/48th scale Supermarine Walrus Mk.I kit and we chart the development of fighter aircraft by featuring a pair of recently released kits which commemorate two of the most significant examples.

 

We also spend some quality time with the members of the Airfix Modelling Special Interest Group and find out a little of their history and what keeps them motivated to display at many of the model shows up and down the country.
