Douglas C-47A Skytrain (USAF 86th Air Base Group 1948) (1:72 scale) - During the Berlin Airlift, the United States Air Force 86th Tactical Fighter Wing at Neubiberg air base in West Germany operated a C- 47 Skytrain support aircraft. On 22nd October 1948, as a gift for the children of Berlin, the C-47 was used to fly 7,000lb (3175kg) of Candy, along with a baby Camel called 'Clarence' into Tempelhof airport in the US sector of Berlin. The camel was the mascot of the 525th Fighter Squadron based at Neubiberg and had been bought by a member of the squadron in Tripoli for $50 and shipped to Germany in the bomb bay of a B-26 Invader bomber. When Berlin was besieged the base personnel decided to present both it and the candy to the children as a gesture of goodwill for Christmas.
Eurofighter Typhoon F2 ZJ921 (RAF 3 Sqn Coningsby) (1:72 scale) - The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-engine canard-delta wing multirole aircraft. It is being designed and built by a consortium of three separate partner companies: Alenia Aeronautica, BAE Systems and EADS working through a holding company Eurofighter GmbH which was formed in 1986. The aircraft has entered service with the UK Royal Air Force, the German Luftwaffe, the Italian Air Force, the Spanish Air Force and the Austrian Air Force. It is also in production for Saudi Arabia. No.3 Squadron (Royal Flying Corps) was formed at Larkhill on 13th May 1912 from Company of the Air Battalion Royal Engineers. No.3 Sqn was actually the first squadron to receive heavier than air flying machines, hence the motto >Tertius primus erit> meaning >The third shall be the first>. No.3 Sqn became the first operational front line squadron equipped with the Eurofighter Typhoon on 31st March 2006. 3(F) Sqn was declared operational in 2007.

Lockheed C-5M Super Galaxy (USAF 436 Airlift Sqn) (1:400 scale) - As well as the famous C-130 Hercules, Lockheed Martin also built the much larger C-5 Galaxy. As one of the largest military aircraft in the world, this American strategic transport aircraft is capable of intercontinental flight. Its design features high wings and a T-tail. The US Air Force (USAF) has operated the C-5A Galaxy since 1969, with the modernized C-5B appearing in 1986. A total of 131 aircraft were built, of which around 33 remain in active service. The Galaxy's cavernous interior is accessed via a large nose hatch or from a rear ramp, with the body able to contain 880m³ of cargo. However, to better transport large-sized cargo, two aircraft were especially modified by removing the rear passenger compartment floor and splitting the rear cargo door in the middle. These so-called C-5C versions are able to accommodate odd-sized loads such as satellites for NASA.
