Please note that this item can only be delivered to US addresses

The English Electric Lightning was a supersonic jet fighter aircraft of the Cold War era, noted for its great speed. It is the only all-British Mach 2 fighter and was the first aircraft in the world capable of cruising at Mach+ speeds. It could also carry the awesome Firestreak missile.

Paint Scheme - 92 Squadron RAF Guttersloh 1980s.

Airfix Starter Sets are ideal for beginners. Medium Starter Sets are a little more challenging to build than the Small Starter Set range, with more parts. Each Medium Starter Set includes glue, two brushes and six acrylic paints.

Brilliant

A great new Lightning mould. Has extra gun/blank parts to make other versions. Just be careful putting the fuselage halves together, some trimming will be required of the interior sections as they are too wide or there will be a millimetre gap left. Again another kit that also has a hundred micro decals to apply, but really really worth it.

Lightning Starter

Great kit and a very reasonable price! One of he most enjoyable kits I've ever built!! The only thing i would say is that there wasn't enough of the silver paint to make a 3rd coat on the bottom of the aircraft. Otherwise, great kit!

Great starter!

I love airfix and when I saw the lightning in hobbycraft I started dribbling. It's a great starter kit and I love the outcome but the only problem I had with it was that a part was missing, Or it had snapped off during transit, which meant I couldn't stick on one of the tail fins. Apart from that a great kit, ire commend you buy it!
