Product description

Own your very own De Havillard Vampire with the fantastic Starter Model Kit from Airfix, the masters of model-making since 1939! Fill your days by discovering the elaborate and careful design of this beautiful plane - now shrunk down-to-scale.

Introduced in 1945, the De Havillard Vampire (originally called ‘The Spider Crab’) was one of the second jet fighters to enter service with the RAF. Due to its unusual style, it was considered to be an experiment by designers and pilots. Used as a ground attack bomber, the Vampire was later re-adapted as a trainer, which you can often see in the sky today.

This set is perfect for beginners – add to your collection or inspire young model-enthusiasts with a must-have from our range of model kits. Get in touch with the past – now in bite size!

Airfix Starter Model Kit De Havillard 1:72 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vampire heaven Cracking little model. Great instructions. A little sparse in the cockpit but good for the scale. I didn't want a Kiwi jet so ordered some other decals from the net and, after painting in a dark aluminium, I applied the new decals and have a 99% perfect 28sqn Vampire from Kai Tak in Hong Kong. I now have loads of decals so will buy a few more kits. As for the 1%, the nose wheel got swallowed up by the carpet monster and I'm waiting for a new one from Airfix. This kit really does need nose weight so make sure you have some lead shot or similar before you start.
