Fighter Aircraft Collection

Aviation-related Magazines Guide

‘Fighter Aircraft Collection’ was a fortnightly partwork which comprised a 16-page full colour magazine and a diecast scale model of an aircraft. The series built-up into a collection of the world’s most important fighter aircraft over the past 100 years. The printed magazine described and illustrated the aircraft type featured in the model, with some very nice photographs and colour profile artwork.

The model was supplied in a cover-mounted bubble pack with a display stand and came in 1:72 or 1:100 scale, depending on the size of the original aircraft. The model was finished in realistic colours and markings. The complete UK collection consisted of 60 models over a 2 year period from September 2010 – an extra 4 models of bomber aircraft where supplied free to subscribers, making a total of 64 models. The choise of some subjects, such as the Fairey Swordfish, Fairey Gannet and A-4 Skyhawk where not exactly in line with the overall fighter aircraft theme, but proved to be quite nice models.

This title was also published in a number of Commonwealth countries, with a slightly different sequence of subjects. The Australia/New Zealand version ran to 64 editions, while the Malaysia/Singapore version had only 42 editions.
