Avro Lancaster (for Vue)

Designed by Roy Chadwick, the Avro Lancaster had its roots in the Manchester which since its inception, was plagued by instability and problems with its complex Vulture engines. Even before the Manchester flew, Chadwick realized that it had serious problems and made plans for its modification. Adding 12ft to the wingspan and replacing the Vulture engines with the Merlin V-12`s, the resulting Lancaster made its maiden flight in January 1941.The system proved quite capable from the outset and was put into production the same year that the prototype had flown. Production went at such a dizzying pace that the aircraft production lines were outpacing the engine lines. As such the American company of Packard jumped in to pick up the production slack, developing the same Merlin engines for shipment back to England. As further insurance, the Bristol company was in line with its own Hercules VI and XVI engines capable of 1,735 horsepower.

During WWII the Lancaster was the most successful bomber in use by both the RAF and RCAF. It is regarded by many as the best bomber of either side in the Second World War. It had a speed, ceiling and lifting power that no other aircraft of the day could match. With a dry weight of 36,900lbs the Lancaster could take off with an additional 31,000lbs of fuel and armament.

The Bomb Bay was a continuous uninterrupted space which stretched for 33 feet. For this reason the Lanc was versatile enough to undertake raids with large specialized weapons but meant that the wing spar was an obstacle to crew movement. The "Grand Slam", a 22,000lb bomb designed to penetrate concrete and explode beneath ground could only be delivered by a Lancaster, so large in fact that the bomb bay doors of Lancasters would be removed to accommodate the weapon. Grand Slam-carrying Lancasters would be put to good use against the Bielefeld Viaduct in 1945, causing a great amount of damage in the process, thus it was first choice for special operations as the sinking of the Turpitz and the Dambusters raid.

Crewed by seven personnel, the system was armed with no fewer than eight defensive machine guns, mounting two in the nose, two in a top turret and a further four in a quad assembly tail turret. A ventral turret assembly was proposed as an addition but was never implemented. The crew worked in cramped conditions, the air gunners having to stay at their posts the entire journey, anything up to 10hrs. At night, the air temperature at 20,000ft frequently fell to -40 with frostbite not uncommon.

In its wake, the Lancaster outshone all of its heavy bomber contemporaries including the well-received Boeing B-17 Flying Fortresses and Consolidated B-24 Liberators, and would be a considerable reason that the Allies were able to supply such good results in their daytime / night-time bombing raids over the German-held territories.

In total, 7377 were built of which 3932 were lost in action. During the war they flew 156,308 sorties and dropped 608,612 tons in bombs and over 12,000 mines in enemy waters.

Some of the aircrafts finest hours were in non-offensive roles, the first being "Operation Manna", flying a total of 3,156 sorties to drop 6,684 tons of food to the starving Dutch in May 1945. The second saw many squadrons tasked to return Allied POW`s from various locations in Europe back to England. In total, 74,000 ex-POW`s were returned over 24 days, a total of 2900 trips.

.: Product Features :.

The product contains three versions of the aircraft, one with the undercarriage lowered, and one with the undercarriage retracted and the blade blurs for the propellers added. The final one has the bomb bay doors open, and a full load of bombs, which can be animated to drop. Load the model and delete the ones you do not want to use in your scene.
Also included are five different individual bombs: Tallboy, 500lb, 4,000lb, 8,000lb and 12,000lb.

Heinkel HE 111 H2 (for Vue)

The design produced by Siegfried and Walter Gunter was purportedly developed as a civil passenger airliner but was very probably used as a way to develop its war effort in secrecy and would be the basis on which future HE11 systems would be based throughout the war.

It was a low monoplane twin engined aircraft with a medium bomber type designation. The principle identifying feature of the aircraft was its greenhouse type nose assembly and low mounted engines. Arguably the most important bomber of the Reich coming into service using 88bhp Daimler-Benz DB 600C engines and met with considerable success being faster than the fighter planes of the same era. By WWII they had been replaced with 1000hp Jumo 211A engines, but by the Battle of Britain they were literally hacked down by the fighters of the time, its only defense being able to return to base after being shot to pieces.

While more defensive armament was added to cope, it slowed the plane`s performance considerably becoming in effect a lame duck. It was built in ever increasing numbers however and in numerous variants to serve all roles including torpedo carriers, V1 launch platforms (after the destruction of the land based launch sites), VIP transports etc., including a glider tower consisting of two joined together and a fifth engine installed designated the HE 111z "Zwilling".

Although outclassed by other aircraft of the time such as the Junkers JU88 and Do17, the Heinkel 111 remains the most potent symbol of the Axis bomber fleet.

.: Product Features :.

The model contains three versions of the aircraft:
- On the ground, with wheels out and hatches open
- Flying mode, with props blurred, and wheels retracted
- Flying mode, with props blurred, and wheels retracted, bombs doors open, with two bombs that can be animated to drop

Junkers JU88 A4 (for Vue)

The Junkers Ju 88 was one of the most versatile and effective combat aircraft of World War II. Its closest counterparts on the Allied side were the Mosquito and Beaufighter. The German aircraft was larger and slower, but nevertheless very effective. 14676 were built, including a staggering 104 prototypes for its 60 different versions.

The most important bomber version was the Ju 88A-4, with longer span wings, a stronger airframe, and Jumo 211J engines. It appeared in the summer of 1940. The strong points of the Ju 88 were speed and a significant bomb load. Its weak points were its short range (this was often extended by carrying additional fuel tanks in the bomb bays), a cramped and inefficient cockpit, and poor defensive armament. During the Battle of Britain the Ju 88 proved that it was the best German bomber, but operations from bases in Norway, without fighter escort, resulted in heavy losses.

The A4 was used in a multitude of roles including, fighter bomber, dive bomber, level bomber, torpedo bomber, night fighter, reconnaissance and when no longer serviceable a huge flying bomb (designated `Mistel`). A multitude of field modifications, some adopted by the factory were made over all variants throughout its service life.

.: Product Features :.

The product contains three versions of the Ju88:
  • One with landing gear lowered and the access hatch open, with an access ladder
  • One with the landing gear up, hatch closed, and propellers blurred
  • One with the bomb doors open and to bombs which can be animated

    The guns, flaps, surfaces propellers and other parts can also be animated.

    Supermarine Walrus aka Shagbat (for Vue)

    One of the unsung heroes of World War II, the Supermarine Walrus amphibian was a private venture development of the 1922 Seagull I, and indeed first flew as the Seagull V on 21 June 1933. A production order by the Australian government prompted evaluation by the Royal Navy`s No. 702 Catapult Flight, which in turn led to an initial contract for 12 Walrus Mk I aircraft being placed by the Air Ministry in 1935, Following further trials, during which a Walrus was catapulted fullyloaded from HMS Nelson, production orders for 204 aircraft with the 474kW Pegasus II M2 radial were placed, and the little flying-boat entered Fleet Air Arm service in 1936. Noteable also that the Walrus was the first commissioned aircraft to feature an enclosed cockpit and retractable undercarriage.

    Early in World War II Walrus amphibians were serving aboard battleships and cruisers of the Royal Navy all over the world as components of No. 700 Squadron, as well as with Nos 701, 711, 712 and 714 Squadrons, their principal duties being over-the-horizon search for enemy shipping; they were also employed for gunnery spotting, antisubmarine and convoy protection duties. A Walrus was even catapulted from the cruiser HMS Dorsetshire to bomb a target in Italian Somaliland on 18 November 1940.

    Undoubtedly the work for which the Walrus (affectionately known as the Shagbat by its crews) will be best remembered was air/sea rescue, serving in this role with Nos 269, 275, 276, 277, 278, 281 and 282 Squadrons at stations in the United Kingdom, and with Nos 283, 284, 292 and 294 Squadrons in the Middle East. Called out in any weather, day or night, Walrus air/sea rescue aircraft frequently alighted in enemy coastal waters to pick up ditched Allied airmen from their dinghies, sometimes putting down in minefields where rescue launches could not venture.

    With their curious pusher engine nacelle located between the wings (and angled off centre)and twin two bladed prop, the sight of a Walrus to a shotdown airman meant the difference between rescue and years in a prison camp. The Walrus was slowly replaced in service from 1944 onwards by the tractor Mercury-powered Sea Otter from the same stable, although No. 624 Squadron was re-formed at Grottaglie in Italy in December that year with Walrus aircraft for minespotting duties.

    A total of 740 Walrus aircraft was built, production of the Walrus Mk I with metal-clad hull being terminated at Supermarine after 287 had been completed; thereafter production was switched to Saunders-Roe who built 453 Walrus Mk II aircraft with wooden hulls before finally ending in January 1944

    .: Product Features :.

    The product contains four versions of the aircraft:
    1) one with the undercarriage lowered
    2) one with the undercarriage lowered and the wings folded
    3) one with the undercarriage retracted for on the water scenes
