| Description

The Armstrong Whitworth Whitley was one of three twin engine RAF medium bombers in service at the outbreak of the Second World War. Despite its slow speed, poor service ceiling and small bomb load the Whitley was an important type for the RAF in this period, forming the backbone of the early night bombing offense. Later in the war it was used both by Coastal Command and as a glider tug.

AW Whitley in Black Overcoat

What a wonderful plane this is and superb model. A quirky looking aircraft, even ugly makes an odd modelling subject. But I would say its a masterstroke and I hope it has been a success for Airfix.

All the parts fit is excellent and the build sequence unique, not to mention the level of cockpit detail. I added an etch detail set but this really is not necessary, and you can view this for yourself as I did a full build thread on the Airfix Forum.

And in conclusion this is probably one of the best kits i have ever done and well worth every penny of the purchase cost. Think I might get the Coastal Command version next although I hadn't initially considered it but I'm definitely a Whitley fan now!! ... Read more

Well worth it

This is the first of the new Airfix kits I have built - as a return to the hobby after a 20-year break. The kit is really excellent. Great moldings, well engineered, and highly detailed. I shall be building more of these new Airfix releases!

Airfix 1:72 AW Whitley Mk.V

Did not use any filler on this kit anywhere. I would recommend building as much of the interior as possible before painting as tolerances on this (and all new Airfix kits) are very tight and even a layer of paint can throw things out. I also used the fuselage halves as a jig to make sure everything lined up correctly. Can not recommend this kit enough.
