P-38L Lightning “Allied Green” 1600mm (63″) Wingspan RC Airplane 6CH with LED Retracts PNP

 What would become one of the best fighters in World War II was created more by happenstance than by design. The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was originally designed as a bomber-interceptor and was never intended to be a fighter. Weight was kept to a minimum and it was far more advanced and faster than its U.S. counterparts, the Bell P-39 Airacobraand Curtiss P-40 Warhawk. It caught the attention of the US Army Air Corps (USAAC) very quickly and it would be in great demand. It was faster than the Zero—even on one engine. It shot down more Japanese airplanes than any other fighter during World War II—seven of the top scoring USAAF aces in the Pacific flew the P-38. It was as versatile as thede Havilland Mosquito, but it was the only truly successful twin-engine fighter of World War II.                                                                                                                                                                                             The XP-38 Lightning prototype was about as graceful looking as a 1930s airplane could get, but its clean lines were deceiving and disguised some major faults.


                                     What would become one of the best fighters in World War II was created more by happenstance than by design.

It was as versatile as thede Havilland Mosquito, but it was the only truly successful twin-engine fighter of World War II.                                                                  It was basically a hand-built airplane and was never meant to be mass produced. All skin sections were butt-joined using flush riveting, and all flight controls were metal covered. The total order was expected to be only fifty aircraft, so when orders started coming in by the hundreds, Lockheed had to scramble to find room to increase production. Over lunch, Lockheed’s president, Bob Gross, made a deal to buy the old 3-G whiskey distillery for $20,000 to make room for an additional production line. However, initial production was slow and by the time Pearl Harbor was attacked, on December 7, 1941, only 69 Lightnings were completed.                                                                        When first introduced in 1939, the Lightning was able to fly a steady course at 413 mph (665 km/h) making it the fastest production airplane in the world and it remained one of the fastest climbers right up to the end of the WW II. It wasn’t as fast as theMesserschmitt Me 209 which was able to attain a record 469 mph (755 km/h), but this record setting machine was built for the purposes of promoting theMesserschmitt Bf 109 and only four aircraft were built.                                                                                                      In 1937, the USAAC sent out specification X-608 to the leading aircraft manufacturers for a new pursuit aircraft. It would be a radical departure for existing fighters and required the following specifications:                                                                                                         • 360 mph (580 km/h) airspeed at 20,000 ft. (6,095 m).
• 290 mph (467 km/h) airspeed at sea level.
• Sustain full power for 1 hour at 20,000 ft. (6,095 m).
• Reach 20,000 ft. (6,095 m) in 6 minutes.
• Takeoff and land within 2,200 ft. (670 m) while clearing a 50 ft. (15 m) obstacle.                                                                    

 Lockheed had previously competed in 1936, but lost against Bell’s XFM-1 Airacuda. Lockheed was new in the military aircraft market and by competing against Boeing and Douglas, many felt they it was overstepping its boundaries. However, this view wasn’t shared by Lockheed’s president Robert E. Gross and he gave the go ahead for his design team to proceed with a plan.

    Lockheed’s chief engineer, Hall Hibbard and the then young Clarence “Kelly” Johnson, and their design team would come up with one of the boldest departures from traditional American fighter development. Hibbard realized that there wasn’t an engine in the world that would meet all of the specifications for speed, range, climb, firepower and other specifications. What they needed was two engines. Hibbard looked at the new Allison V-1710 engine which had just been tested to deliver 1,000 hp (745 kW) for 150 hours. Their airplane would require two of these engines and the aircraft design was narrowed down to six selections. With the final choice decided, the Lightning was a complete break from conventional airframe design, power and armament. It had twice the power and was almost twice the size of its predecessors. It had four .50 caliber machine guns plus a 20 mm cannon—enough firepower to sink a ship—and sometimes did. By locating the guns in the central fuselage pod, this eliminated a need for propeller synchronization and the twin booms provided extra space for the engines, landing gear and turbochargers.

F-22 Raptor High Performance Version Gray Camo 64mm 4S EDF Ducted Fan Jet RC Airplane

  The F-22 Raptor Is the World’s Best Fighter (And It Has a Secret Weapon That Is Out in the Open)                                                                                                                                                              With Russia and China deploying advanced new fighters and surface-to-air missiles (SAM), the task of gaining and maintaining air superiority over an increasingly more lethal battlespace falls to a small and elite group of U.S. Air Force pilots flying the mighty Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.                                                                                                                           Conceived during the waning years of the Cold War, the stealthy high-flying supersonically cruising Raptor was designed to defeat the most fearsome weapons the Soviet Union could hurl at the United States and NATO during a third world war in Europe. However, with the end of the Cold War and subsequent 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, the F-22 was left without a mission—or so it was thought. Indeed, the second Bush and Obama administrations cancelled the F-22 program in 2008 after only 195 aircraft—187 production planes—were ordered because they made the assumption that high-end state-on-state conflicts were a relic of the past. However, as it is becoming increasingly apparent, they were wrong.                                                                                                                     Earlier this year, Defense Secretary Ashton Carter spoke about a return to great power competition. “We will be prepared for a high-end enemy. That’s what we call full spectrum. In our budget, our plans, our capabilities and our actions, we must demonstrate to potential foes, that if they start a war, we have the capability to win. Because the force that can deter conflict, must show that it can dominate a conflict,” Carter said, speaking at the Washington Economic Club in February. “In this context, Russia and China are our most stressing competitors. They have developed and are continuing to advance military systems that seek to threaten our advantages in specific areas. And in some case, they are developing weapons and ways of wars that seek to achieve their objectives rapidly, before they hope, we can respond.”                                              Indeed, even after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia protected the best of its military-industrial capabilities as much as it could during the economic and social meltdown of the 1990s. Despite its severe problems, Russia managed to develop and field advanced weapon systems such as the Su-35S Flanker-E, S-300V4 and S-400 among others. Meanwhile, a rising China modernized its forces in earnest—developing new fighters and new SAM system such as the formidable J-16 and HQ-9. Thus, while Washington took its eyes off potential challengers to focus on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, leaders in Beijing and Moscow continued to modernize their militaries to keep American forces at bay in the event of a future conflict.                                                            

Why America Needs the F-22 Raptor (Now More Than Ever):

Now, with voices on the left and the right clamoring for action in Syria, where the Kremlin is propping up its long-time ally—the Assad regime—the Pentagon finds that it has to rely on its tiny fleet of 186 F-22 Raptors if the call comes to establish a no-fly zone or a safe-zone in that war-torn nation. The Raptor is the only operational combat aircraft that the United States operates that Washington can rely on to take-on and defeat advanced air defenses such as the Pantsir-S1, S-300V4 and S-400 that Moscow has dispatched to Syria. Moreover, it is the only aircraft in the U.S. Air Force inventory that possesses a huge performance overmatch against late generation Russian fighters such as the Su-30SM Flanker-H and Su-35S Flanker-E, both of which the Kremlin has also deployed to the region.                                                                                                                                          “Our role is to kick down the door,” 1st Fighter Wing commander, Col. Pete Fesler—a veteran F-22 Raptor pilot—told me during a visit to Langley Air Force Base in Virginia. “We are, without a doubt, on the leading edge of whatever force you’re going to send because we have an airplane that has a capability that no one else has.”

FMS 1400mm B25 Mitchell -Green PNP

  The North American B25 Mitchell was a twin-engine medium bomber that served in every theatre of WW2. The aircraft was safe and forgiving to fly and featured a formidable array of firepower. It was also used to strike the first ever bomber attack on mainland Japan that boosted moral of the American war machine after the devastation caused by the attack at Pearl Harbour.                                                                                                                                                                                                FMS has chosen the B25-D which featured upgraded supercharge radial engines and increased armament and first flew in January 1942. This is a highly detailed and feature rich model which includes: 5 painted pilots, 11 machine guns, high power LED Navigational lights, worm drive retracts with gear door sequence controller.                                                                                                                                                     Taxiing and ground handling is great using the steerable nose wheel and makes for stress free take offs. Once in the air, all control surfaces are very effective and coupled to the light wing loading and excellent power make this a winning package.                                                                                                                                                                           Confidence inspiring flight predictability will enable any budding twin enthusiastic pilot to really push the flight envelope and wring this aircraft out. At the same time it’s a walk in the park to bring it back down for a beautiful scale landing, all this without the use of flaps!

F-16C Grey Super Scale 90mm with 12 Blade EDF Ducted Fan Jet RC Airplane PNP

Mission:
The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a compact, multi-role fighter aircraft. It is highly maneuverable and has proven itself in air-to-air combat and air-to-surface attack. It provides a relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system for the United States and allied nations.                                                                             Features:
In an air combat role, the F-16’s maneuverability and combat radius (distance it can fly to enter air combat, stay, fight and return) exceed that of all potential threat fighter aircraft. It can locate targets in all weather conditions and detect low flying aircraft in radar ground clutter. In an air-to-surface role, the F-16 can fly more than 500 miles (860 kilometers), deliver its weapons with superior accuracy, defend itself against enemy aircraft, and return to its starting point. An all-weather capability allows it to accurately deliver ordnance during non-visual bombing conditions.

In designing the F-16, advanced aerospace science and proven reliable systems from other aircraft such as the F-15 and F-111 were selected. These were combined to simplify the airplane and reduce its size, purchase price, maintenance costs and weight. The light weight of the fuselage is achieved without reducing its strength. With a full load of internal fuel, the F-16 can withstand up to nine G’s — nine times the force of gravity — which exceeds the capability of other current fighter aircraft.                                                                The cockpit and its bubble canopy give the pilot unobstructed forward and upward vision, and greatly improved vision over the side and to the rear. The seat-back angle was expanded from the usual 13 degrees to 30 degrees, increasing pilot comfort and gravity force tolerance. The pilot has excellent flight control of the F-16 through its “fly-by-wire” system. Electrical wires relay commands, replacing the usual cables and linkage controls. For easy and accurate control of the aircraft during high G-force combat maneuvers, a side stick controller is used instead of the conventional center-mounted stick. Hand pressure on the side stick controller sends electrical signals to actuators of flight control surfaces such as ailerons and rudder.

Avionics systems include a highly accurate enhanced global positioning and inertial navigation systems, or EGI, in which computers provide steering information to the pilot. The plane has UHF and VHF radios plus an instrument landing system. It also has a warning system and modular countermeasure pods to be used against airborne or surface electronic threats. The fuselage has space for additional avionics systems.                             Background:
The F-16A, a single-seat model, first flew in December 1976. The first operational F-16A was delivered in January 1979 to the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.

The F-16B, a two-seat model, has tandem cockpits that are about the same size as the one in the A model. Its bubble canopy extends to cover the second cockpit. To make room for the second cockpit, the forward fuselage fuel tank and avionics growth space were reduced. During training, the forward cockpit is used by a student pilot with an instructor pilot in the rear cockpit.

All F-16s delivered since November 1981 have built-in structural and wiring provisions and systems architecture that permit expansion of the multirole flexibility to perform precision strike, night attack and beyond-visual-range interception missions. This improvement program led to the F-16C and F-16D aircraft, which are the single- and two-place counterparts to the F-16A/B, and incorporate the latest cockpit control and display technology. All active units and many Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units have converted to the F-16C/D.                                                                                                         The F-16 was built under an unusual agreement creating a consortium between the United States and four NATO countries: Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway. These countries jointly produced with the United States an initial 348 F-16s for their air forces. Final airframe assembly lines were located in Belgium and the Netherlands. The consortium’s F-16s are assembled from components manufactured in all five countries. Belgium also provides final assembly of the F100 engine used in the European F-16s. Recently, Portugal joined the consortium. The long-term benefits of this program will be technology transfer among the nations producing the F-16, and a common-use aircraft for NATO nations. This program increases the supply and availability of repair parts in Europe and improves the F-16’s combat readiness.

U.S. Air Force F-16 multirole fighters were deployed to the Persian Gulf in 1991 in support of Operation Desert Storm, where more sorties were flown than with any other aircraft. These fighters were used to attack airfields, military production facilities, Scud missiles sites and a variety of other targets.

During Operation Allied Force, U.S. Air Force F-16 multirole fighters flew a variety of missions to include suppression of enemy air defense, offensive counter air, defensive counter air, close air support and forward air controller missions. Mission results were outstanding as these fighters destroyed radar sites, vehicles, tanks, MiGs and buildings.

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the F-16 has been a major component of the combat forces committed to the war on terrorism flying thousands of sorties in support of operations Noble Eagle (Homeland Defense), Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Iraqi Freedom.                                                                                                                                          General characteristics

5 CH BlitzRCWorks VTOL V-22 Osprey RC Warbird Airplane

  Boeing is apparently working on a large passenger aircraft with vertical takeoff and landing features. The company received a patent for a tilt-rotor design that has room for at least 100 passengers, according to a Business Insider report Thursday. The VTOL plane has potential for both civilian and military use, according to the report. It seems to be inspired in part by the famous two-engine V-22 Osprey, which Boeing and Bell Helicopters developed for the U.S. military in the 1980s, the first of its kind designed for use by the Marines and Air Force. The patent for the unnamed aircraft includes potential uses for commercial flights, military missions or personal transport, according to the report. Its design includes four engines mounted on two fixed wings along with two large rotors attached on the tips for vertical takeoffs and landings.

The company hasn’t revealed details of its intentions for the VTOL design, but a civilian passenger plane with such capabilities will likely raise speculation about the potential for off-airport commercial transportation. “Boeing files tons of patents so this might not even come to fruition,” a Boeing spokesman told Business Insider. “I’m not saying it won’t.” The patented design also calls for lower wings on the airframe compared to the V-22 to allow for passenger exits as well as simpler maintenance, a Seattle Times report notes.                                                                                                                    

                                                                                                                                                       Do you know what VTOL means? Aside from vertical takeoff and landing, it means taking off and landing can be done in a multitude of different terrains. No runway necessary. This model was in the making for about 3 years, with countless hours of development and testing. There were a lot of hurdles in the way, but it’s finally here.                                                                               A market-first, and ground-breaking scale V-22 Osprey with full VTOL and forward flight capabilities. This beauty is built with a high-precision stabilization board, quality electronics, and of course, EPO foam. With its 3-point propulsion system, it manages to fly with unrivaled stability. Plus, the transition to forward flight seamlessly blends with the overall flying experience, making it easier on the pilot.                                                                           Currently there’s nothing like it in the scale and performance department, making this a one of a kind model. Did we mention, no runway necessary? Take it for a spin today!                                                                                                            

Feature:
  • 5 operable channels (aileron, elevator, throttle, rudder and forward flight actuation)

  • Professional high-precision stabilization board

  • 3-point propulsion system for stability

  • Simple and easy to assemble

  • Built with high-grade EPO foam

RC Model C26416GUN Billet Machined 8X8 10T GL High-Mobility Off-Road Truck 1/10 Size ARTR

OVERVIEW
We took our very popular and unique 7T-GL 6X6 and created a longer, larger machine in the new 10T GL 8X8! Realistically modeled after the historical 10-ton military-spec all-terrain trucks, our 8X8 10T-GL High Mobility Truck is a massive machine that weighs in at 15-pounds! The build of this machine all starts with the backbone: a pre-assembled box-type extended ladder frame made from steel and alloy components. From here, you’ll find four Billet machined alloy axles: two independent-steer front axles with metal spools and HD driveshafts, and two more straight rear axles with metal gear differentials, full ball bearings, full alloy high-ratio center transmission, full-time eight-wheel drive, and a multi-link crawler-type suspension with separate alloy shocks and springs.                                                                                         Topping the chassis is a full aluminum, scale detailed, multi-piece metal cab and bed (assembly required) with features such as front and rear LED lights, dual electric winches, adjustable side mirrors, front skid plate, actual working rear tailgate, clear Lexan windows, full-sized spare wheel and tire, paintable interior set and metal rear wheel fenders. The center section features a pivoting top with a hidden electronics area underneath. A matching set of eight (nine including the spare) of our true beadlock 1.9-class alloy beadlock wheels and pre-mounted rock crawler tires round out the look.                                                                                                                                           NOTE: PHOTOS ABOVE SHOW COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED VEHICLE. Out of the box, the lower chassis (frame, axles, suspension, etc.) arrives 90% assembled; Upper cab, and trailer bed arrive un-assembled and requires assembly. Interior is made from Lexan, and must be painted. Shimming may be required for perfect alignment and fitment. Reference photos included; if you do not know how to assemble the chassis or body, please ask your local dealer for assistance. Before installation, please check metal-to-metal fasteners for tightness, and use liquid threadlock when required, as some components are assembled for packaging purposes only.                                           BODY/CHASSIS

Failure to do so is not a warranty-related incident.

Extra hardware, shims, or spacers may be required for some installations. Some parts may require permanent modification to the vehicle for fitment, and may eliminate certain OEM features. Some Integy-branded items may be only compatible with the vehicle’s OEM parts but not with another Integy-branded item due to design language. For multiple-fitment items, some parts may not be used based on application.                                                                                 

Focke-Wulf FW-190 Radio Controlled Gasoline Powered 55cc Giant Scale Almost-Ready-to-Fly Warbird Airplane

 

Brief History: The Fw 190 is widely regarded as Germany’s best fighter aircraft of World War II. Its appearance in the skies over France in early 1941 was a rude shock to the Allies, as it was clearly superior to any other plane. For nearly a year, until the debut of the Spitfire IX, the Fw 190 was the unmatched champion of the air war.

 

                                         

 

As the war progressed, the Fw 190 was developed into many variants as a pure fighter, a ground-attack fighter/bomber, and as a close-support aircraft. No fewer than 40 different versions were produced, with different combinations of engines, armament, wings, systems, and roles.

 

                                                                                                     

 

First flown on 1 June 1939, the Fw 190 served for the duration of the war, largely replacing several other aircraft types in the process, including the Junker Ju 87 Stuka dive bomber. Allied bombers dreaded the sight of these potent aircraft, as did the fighters who provided cover for them. Arguably, the Fw 190’s greatest impact on the Allied war effort was to spur ever-greater advances in technology and aircraft design to counter its threat.

Taigen Tanks Sherman M4A3 76mm Metal Edition 2.4GHz 1/16th Scale Airsoft RTR RC Tank

Quantity and quality

The M4 Sherman (named after the famous American Civil War general William T. Sherman) is one of the few really iconic fighting vehicles of the Allies during Word War Two, and one of the most famous tanks in history. But while this historic status was gained partly thanks to its intrinsic qualities, but also due to the sheer numbers in which they were provided, only surpassed by the Soviet Union’s T-34, with a staggering 50,000 total delivered. It remains by far the most widely used tank on the Allied side during the war.                                                                                                                                                                                      M4, early production version (1942), 13th Armored Regiment of the 1st Armored Division, Tunisia, March 1943. One of the rare Shermans actually painted sand beige in US Service.

It remains by far the most widely used tank on the Allied side during the war. It was derived into countless derivatives and had a very long postwar career which lasted well into the Cold War. It has been largely compared to the T-34, and had the occasion to confront some during the Korean War.

However, the Sherman was not as successful as it seemed. Derived in a haste from the previous and controversial M3 Lee/Grant, it was the first to bear a fully-traversing turret with a 75 mm (2.95 in) gun. It was designed from the very beginning for mass-production. Cheap and relatively simple to build, easy to maintain, reliable, roomy, sturdy, fast, well-armored and well-armed, it was the good-all-around armored vehicle the Allies had sought for until 1942, when it first arrived on the North African front.                                     

M4 Sherman, early production vehicle, 32nd Tank Battalion of the 3rd Armored Division, Normandy, 1944. Notice the “low visibility” stars.                  It literally soldiered in every corner of the globe, under many colors, from 1942 to the end of the war. These theaters included (in WWII alone) most of North Africa, Russia, most of Europe, the Eastern Indies, the Philippines, many Pacific islands and China.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      By 1940, Great Britain had found itself desperately short on tanks. Some were provided through the freshly signed Lend-Lease agreement. At the same time, the US Army, fully learning from the shock caused by the Blitzkrieg in Western Europe, was in the process of emergency modernization of its equipment. The M4 was, in fact, the type of medium tank the US industry was not yet prepared to build in early 1940, which led to the intermediate M3 Lee. The latter was to be equipped with a fully revolving turret at first, but the urge in production imposed the choice of a transitional, yet unsatisfactory solution, a 75 mm (2.95 in) gun in a hull sponson. So, by late August 1940, as the M3 production started, U.S. Army Ordnance Department tried many solutions for mating a fully traversing turret with the M3 hull, which eventually led to the M4.                                                                                                    Early production M4 Sherman, 40th Tank Battalion, 8th Armored Division, Belgium, February 1945, at the end of the battle of the Bulge.

The latter was to be equipped with a fully revolving turret at first, but the urge in production imposed the choice of a transitional, yet unsatisfactory solution, a 75 mm (2.95 in) gun in a hull sponson. So, by late August 1940, as the M3 production started, U.S. Army Ordnance Department tried many solutions for mating a fully traversing turret with the M3 hull, which eventually led to the M4.

On April 18, 1941, the U.S. Armored Forces Board chose the T6, among five designs, to be the blueprint of a pre-production series. The final mock-up was approved in May and the definitive prototype sent to the Aberdeen Proving Grounds for extensive trials in September 1941. Basically, it was an M3 armed with the same main gun relocated in a large, rounded revolving turret. By the standards of 1940, the M4 offered a dependable gun platform able to deal with the main German tanks of the time, the Panzer III and IV, support infantry and make a breakthrough through speed and firepower.                                                               M4 Sherman, 2nd Armored Division, 1st Free French Army, Operation Anvil Dragoon, Provence, August 1944.                                                                                         Its designing and manufacturing were eased by the borrowing of many parts and innovations from previous models, the Light Tank M2,  Medium Tank M2 and the M3, like the efficient and well-proven vertical volute spring suspension, the rubberized track links, but, perhaps above all, a highly standardized, compact, light and powerful aviation radial engine, the Continental R975. This model was already largely produced for the aircraft industry, which assured comfortable provision of spare parts and ease of maintenance by any trained personnel.                                                                                                                                   Early type M4, unknown unit, Normandy, summer 1944.

Cold war career and memorabilia

Despite being designed in 1941, the Sherman was still in service in many countries as far as the fall of the iron curtain in 1990, leaving the strange impression of a “living fossil”. This could be found in the many improvements performed on its chassis, a testimony to its sturdiness and adaptability, and the huge supplies of spare parts available due to an early standardization and unrivaled, at least in the West, mass production. The “Easy Eight” was the blueprint for some improvements and late wartime versions that fought under the US flag during the Korean war and later the Vietnam war, under South Vietnamese flag. The Israeli completely modernized the type, later known as the M51 “Super Sherman”, which performed well during the 1967 and 1973 wars, armed with a new 105 mm (4.13 in) high velocity gun.

A-10 Thunderbolt II Dual 64mm EDF Jet 1100mm

The Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II was designed for the US Air Force for close air support. The prototype first flew in 1972 and was introduced into service in 1977. It is commonly known as the Warthog or Hog and houses the legendary GAU-8 Avenger 30mm Gatling gun. The A-10C is still being used by the US Airforce.                                                             

This is a well-made scale model of the legendary aircraft with loads of features. It comes complete with a hand painted pilot, legendary cannon, bombs and drop tanks to add to the beautifully crafted and realistic airframe in US Airforce colors. The plane is powered by two 64mm EDFs with 2836-3500KV motors, and 40A ESCs, producing 1700g of thrust. Also all servos are metal geared and if you need flaps then add another two 9g servos. Servoless retracts are standard.

Just like the real plane this model has amazing low level, slow speed maneuverability due to the wide wings and heaps of power.                                                                                                          

This is a must for any collection. Just think of all those low beat-ups of your airfield.
