Airfix Series 12 - 1:72 - Eighth Air Force Resupply Set



The United States Army Air Force (USAAF) Eighth Air Force was created during World War II to support the Allied invasion of German occupied Europe by flying day-time strategic bombing missions from bases in Eastern England.

By late 1944 the Eighth Air Force’s air war over occupied Europe was at its height. Everyday hundreds of Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and Consolidated B-24 Liberator bombers would head over German held territory, braving flak, German fighters and the weather to deliver bombs onto targets.

Damage to returning aircraft was commonplace which often led to the cannibalisation of badly damaged airframes to keep others flying. The silver port wing on the B-17G depicted in this kit is an example of this practice and it is a testament to the skill and hard work of the ground crews that so many aircraft were kept serviceable in this way.

Additional Information

Manufacturer Information

Most people have heard of Airfix and a lot of non-modellers only know plastic kits as 'Airfix Kits' (similar to 'Hoover' and vacuum cleaners). Although they had some serious financial troubles last year Airfix have been bought by Hornby who are striving to re-establish the name and create some new models for year. New Releases include the much anticipated Nimrod as well as 4 variants of the Canberra and an assortment of Airfield sets including the RAF and Luftwaffe.

Airfix are a good choice for beginners as they make 'starter sets' that contain everything required to complete the model (glues, brushes and paints), This is a much cheaper option than buying everything separately. Quality is not great on most of their kits as tooling tends to be old but again for beginners this is not so much of an issue.
