AIRFIX (A04702) WWII RAF Ground Crew. 1/48 scale

Our Price: 18.99


Plastic construction kit that requires assembly and painting

While it is the pilots that often receive the most acclaim for their role in defending the United Kingdom from the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain in the late summer of 1940, they could never have completed this job alone. Supporting the pilots were many more men and women across the UK who served as ground crew, performing the vital tasks of refuelling, re-arming and maintaining fighter aircraft in between sorties

This was a particularly hazardous task during the period of the Luftwaffe attacks and hit and run raids upon RAF airfields. In addition to refuelling and re-arming Spitfires and Hurricanes with thousands of .303 rounds, these hardworking people also patched up damaged fighters, started the engines before sorties, assisted pilots to clamber into their cockpits and did their best to keep them as well maintained as they could, despite the hectic pace of the battle
