Arado Minifighter

Thumbnail
A captured Arado document showed a miniature fighter, 18.4ft in span and 16.2 ft long, slung under the fuselage of an Ar 234C. The pilot is prone behind armor plate and plexiglass, and armament consists of 1 x MK 108 with 45 rounds. A Walter bi-fuel rocket is fitted in the tail. It was to make two high speed passes at the Allied bombers and then, if it still existed, look for someplace to land.

Bachem-Natter

Thumbnail
The Bachem Ba 349 Natter (Adder) was a World War II era German experimental point-defense rocket-powered interceptor aircraft which was to be used in a very similar way as unmanned surface-to-air missiles. After vertical takeoff which eliminated the need for airfields, the majority of the flight to the bombers was radio controlled from the ground. Including the Fantasy Dragon Slayer, NINE versions as of 8/09 !!

Colditz Escape Glider

Thumbnail
The glider was assembled by Goldfinch and Best and 12 assistants known as "apostles", in the lower attic above the chapel. The runway was to be constructed from tables and the glider was to be launched using a pulley system based on a falling metal bathtub full of concrete, using a gravity-assisted acceleration to 30 mph (50 km/h).

DFS Invasion Glider

Thumbnail
Eight DFS 230 gliders, carrying 85 Pioneers under Leutnant Rudolf Witzig, landed on the roof of the Belgian fort of Eben Emael in the early hours of May 10, 1940. There had been no declaration of war, and they achieved surprise. Using the new shaped charges, they disabled the fort's guns and trapped the garrison inside. The assault cost only 21 casualties.

Dornier-Arrow

Thumbnail
The most unconventional piston engine fighter developed in Germany during the war, the Arrow had two engines driving 'push-pull' air screws. Two seater night-fighter versions were being produced alongside the single-seat fighter-bomber.

Flettner-282

Thumbnail
In Germany, Anton Flettner developed a series of helicopters using counter-rotating intermeshing rotors. In 1942, the two seat Fl 282 Kolibri ("Humming Bird") became the first helicopter anywhere to enter operational military service. It was the most advanced helicopter developed during WWII. Thanks to Aaron for distilling this pretty complex piece of machinery into a relatively easy cardmodel.

FockeAchgelis Fa-61

Thumbnail
Prof. Heinrich Focke had come to the conclusion that the inadequacies and limited serviceability of autogyros could only be eliminated by a real helicopter. A free-flying model, built in 1934, propelled by a small two-stroke engine brought the promise of success.

FW-190

Thumbnail
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 Würger, was a German, single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft designed by Kurt Tank in the 1930s. It was used by the Luftwaffe during the Second World War. It partially replaced the Messerschmitt Bf 109 in 1941. Over 20,000 were manufactured, including around 6,000 fighter-bomber models.
$3.95

Heinkel-178

Thumbnail
The Heinkel He 178 was the world's first aircraft to fly under turbojet power, and the first practical jet plane. It beat the Whittle powered Gloster E28 by about a year and a half. The He-178 was just a testbed and flew only a couple times. The Gloster E28 model is also in the Fiddlersgreen Collection (see above) Display stands included
$4.50

Horten HO 229

Thumbnail
The German government was funding glider clubs at the time because production of military aircraft was forbidden by the Treaty of Versailles after World War I. The flying wing layout removes any "unneeded" surfaces and, in theory at least, leads to the lowest possible drag. This is a pretty easy model to build and great to display hanging from your ceiling.
$4.95

Horten Ho-IV

Thumbnail
Perhaps the most impressive and graceful flying wing sailplane ever! Two sizes, with the largest having a wing span of 38 inches. Several versions. Includes Towing Jeep, and Horten Brothers Cutouts.
$4.95

Horten IX glider

Thumbnail
The first Ho IX V1, which was an unpowered glider, flew on 1 March 1944. It was followed in December 1944 by the Jumo 004-powered Ho IX V2 (the BMW 003 engine was preferred but unavailable at the time). Göring believed in the design and ordered a production series of 40 aircraft at Gotha with the RLM designation Ho 229 before it had taken to the air under jet power.
$4.95

Huckebein

Thumbnail
Some sources say that the famous Soviet MiG-15 was at least inspired by the Ta 183 because the Soviets captured plans and prototypes for the Ta 183 from the Germans at the end of World War II.[1] The MiG-15 shared the general layout of high tailplane, bubble canopy, and nose mounted intake and guns.
$4.50

Junkers JU-87

Thumbnail
The Junkers Ju 87 or Stuka (from Sturzkampfflugzeug, "dive bomber") was a two-seat (pilot and rear gunner) German ground-attack aircraft of World War II. Designed by Hermann Pohlmann, the Stuka first flew in 1935 and made its combat début in 1936 as part of the Luftwaffe's Condor Legion during the Spanish Civil War.

Lippisch P-13a

Thumbnail
As conventional fuels were in extremely short supply by late 1944, Lippisch proposed that the P.13a be powered by coal. Initially, it was proposed that a wire-mesh basket holding coal be mounted behind a nose air intake, protruding slightly into the airflow and ignited by a gas burner.
$4.50

Lippisch-DM1

Thumbnail
The Lippisch DM-1 was an unpowered glider designed to test the low speed handling of the to be developed Lippisch P.13a. The glider itself was externally similar to the P.13a, with a large delta wing and half delta vertical stabilizer, which housed the cockpit.

Messerschmitt Me-109

Thumbnail
The Bf 109 was the most successful fighter of World War II, shooting down more aircraft than any of its contemporaries. Originally conceived as an interceptor, it was later developed to fulfill multiple tasks, serving as bomber escort, fighter bomber, day, night, all-weather fighter, bomber destroyer, ground-attack aircraft, and as reconnaissance aircraft.

Messerschmitt Me-109 Collection

Thumbnail
The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was designed by Willy Messerschmitt in the early 1930s. It was one of the first true modern fighters of the era, including such features as an all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear. The Bf 109 was produced in greater quantities than any other fighter aircraft in history, with a total of 33,984 units produced up to April 1945

Messerschmitt Me-163 Komet

Thumbnail
Operations began in 1944. As expected, the aircraft was extremely fast, and for a time the Allied fighters were at a complete loss as what to do about it. Singly or in pairs, the Komets attacked, often faster than the opposing fighters could dive in an attempt to intercept them.
$5.95

Messerschmitt Me-262

Thumbnail
Sleek and Deadly..The Messerschmitt Me 262. During WWII's final two years this gas turbine-powered M2-262 was the great white hope of the Luftwaffe's Fighter Force.Far faster than any allied fighter type, with its powerful armament, it promised to be a potent bomber destroyer. Yet in combat, the revolutionary jet made little impact in any role..WHAT went wrong??
$30.00

Messerschmitt Me-321 Gigant

Thumbnail
Me-321 Gigant WWII Cargo Glider. Kit included Panzer tank, Opel Blitz truck and even the powered Me-323 version. One of the largest card model ever with a wingspan of over 4 feet!!
$4.50

Mitsubishi-Claude

Thumbnail
The Mitsubishi A5M a Japanese carrier based fighter aircraft. It was the world's first monoplane shipboard fighter and the direct ancestor of the famous Mitsubishi A6M 'Zero'. The Allied code-name was Claude; the Japanese Navy designation was "Type 96 carrier-based fighter"
$14.95

Opel Blitz Truck Collection

Thumbnail
Eleven completely different versions of the German Opel truck that played such an important role in WWII. This is a must for any Wargamer or diorama artist. 10 from John Dell with a couple playful versions from Guido Van Roy.
$4.50

Panzer Tank

Thumbnail
The Panzer III was a tank developed in the 1930s by Germany and used extensively in World War II but It soon became obsolete in this role and for most purposes was replaced by up-gunned Panzer IVs, though some would continue to be used for infantry support until late in the war. This tank model is included FREE with the Me-321 Gigant Transport Glider.
$4.95

Salamander

Thumbnail
Designed and built quickly, and made primarily of wood as metals were in very short supply and prioritised for other aircraft, the He 162 was nevertheless the fastest of the first generation of Axis and Allied jets. Volksjäger was the RLM's official name for the He 162.
$4.95

Triebflugel X-plane

Thumbnail
It had no wings, and all lift and thrust were provided by a rotor/propeller assembly in the middle of the craft. When the plane was sitting on its tail in the vertical position the rotors would have functioned similarly to a helicopter. When flying horizontally they would function more like a giant propeller.
$4.95

V-1 Missile

Thumbnail
The V-1 Doodlebug has been completely re-drawn.. The first design was done by hand in 1987 way-back in the computer dark ages. This one has BW and 4 other versions including the manned Reichesberg V1

Yokosuka Ohka

Thumbnail
It was a manned flying bomb that was usually carried underneath bombers to within range of its target; on release, the pilot would first glide toward the target and when close enough he would fire the Ohka's rocket engine and guide the missile towards the ship that he intended to destroy. (FYI, 'Ohka' translates to Cherry Blossom)
$4.95

Zero

Thumbnail
The pre-series A6M2 Zero became known in 1940-41, when the fighter destroyed 266 confirmed aircraft in China. At the time of Pearl Harbor, there were 420 Zeros active in the Pacific. The carrier-borne Model 21 was the type encountered by the Americans, often much further from its carriers than expected, with a mission range of over 1600 statute miles.
