Heinkel He 115 – WW2 RAF Recognition model – Rare Wooden 1:72 scale - with stores labels 

The Heinkel He 115 was a three-seat World War II Luftwaffe seaplane. It was used as a torpedo bomber and performed general seaplane duties, such as reconnaissance and minelaying. The aircraft was powered by two 960 PS BMW 132K nine-cylinder air-cooled radial engines. Some later models could seat four, had different engines or used different weapon arrangements.

The first prototype Heinkel flew in August 1937, testing was successful and the He 115 design was selected over the Ha 140 early in 1938, leading to an order for another prototype and 10 pre-production aircraft.

The first prototype was used to set a series of international records for floatplanes over 1,000 km (620 mi) and 2,000 km (1,200 mi) closed circuits at a speed of 328 km/h (204 mph)

At the usual British scale of 1:72, this very rare model has a wingspan of around 14 inches ( 36cms) The Airframe is wooden, has some obvious repairs but is in complete condition.....and the stores labels are present and clear.

Messerschmitt Me 210– WW2 RAF Recognition model – Wooden 1:72 scale with stores labels 

The Messerschmitt Me 210 was a German heavy fighter and ground-attack aircraft of World War II. Design started before the war, as a replacement for the Bf 110. The first examples were ready in 1939, but they proved to have unacceptably poor flight characteristics due to serious wing planform and fuselage design flaws. The design entered limited service in 1942, but was soon replaced by the Me 410 Hornissse, a further development of the Me 210. 

At the usual British scale of 1:72, this wooden model has a few damage problems as can be seen from the photos, and is priced accordingly. On the bonus side, the stores labels are present and clear.

Fairey Firefly – RAF Recognition model – Rare Wooden 1:90 scale with stores labels 

One of the rarer “oddball” British Recognition models that were made in small numbers in scales other than 1:72 !

The Fairey Firefly was a rugged, two-seat carrier-borne aircraft ordered by the British Air Ministry, with the first prototype trials in December 1941. Designed as a long-range anti-submarine reconnaissance-fighter, it was based on the Fairey Fulmar but was greatly improved with a more powerful engine and heavy weapons for strike operations.

The Firefly went into production in August 1942 and after acceptance trials in 1943, was assigned to the RN Fleet Air Arm’s 1770 Squadron – which in 1944 joined the attack on the German battleship Tirpitz.

By 1955 over 1,700 Fireflies had been built. They served with distinction in WW2 and Korea before finally being replaced by the Fairey Gannet in the mid-1950s.

At a scale of 1:90, this very rare model has a wingspan of a little over 6 inches ( 16cms) The Airframe is wooden, good and undamaged apart from a repair to the starboard stabiliser......and the stores labels are present and clear.
