The Battle of Britain 70th Anniversary Collection is an Officially Authorized commemoration of 3 authentically crafted 1:72 scale model aircraft from Oxford Diecast one of the most respected model makers in the world. The Spitfire, the Hurricane and the Gloster Gladiator.all painstakingly recreated in minute detail and all finished by hand.
2015 commemorates the 75th Anniversary of one of the pivotal series of events of the Second World War when in 1940, Great Britain was fighting for her very existence against the bombardment of our country by the German Luftwaffe. Here at Oxford, we remember this period in our history with the release of a three-piece set of 1:72 scale aircraft. Each of the aircraft is mounted on a plinth with a legend detailing its identity. Firstly comes the Gloster Gladiator MKII, the bi-plane in use by the RAF at the beginning of the War, seen here in RAF camouflage colours with identity markings HP-B N2308 and in reverse order on the other side. The lettering on the plinth reads Gloster Gladiator MkII. Flight Lieutenant A E Makins. 247 Squadron, Roborough 1940. The next model is the iconic Spitfire MkI, also in RAF camouflage colours, PR-Q R6690 (reversed on the other side) as flown by Flying Officer John Dundas of 609 Squadron, Middle Wallop, 1940. Note the stag emblem printed in white under the cockpit window and the highly detailed wheels with black tyres and duck egg green wheel centres. Finally the Hurricane MkI, makes up the third model in the set, modelled on the aircraft piloted by Flight Lieutenant I R Gleed of 87 Squadron, Exeter 1940. It is also decorated in the dark green/dark earth and duck egg green camouflage colour scheme of the RAF, with the duck egg green applied to the wheel centres as well as the underbelly of the aircraft. A tiny little detail below the cockpit window features the pilot?s personal cartoon character with one Swastika, indicating his victory tally to date.
