Own the ‘Jet Age’ icon that helped win the Cold War
Introducing our exclusive heavyweight replica of the mighty Avro Vulcan Bomber
An era of competition, innovation and fear
With the devastation of World War II barely over, the world was faced with a new, potentially even more cataclysmic threat – the Cold War. Even though not as many shots were fired, and not as many lives tragically lost, the constant threat of total nuclear annihilation was enough to leave the world living in fear for decades.
With this increased threat came huge technological advances. Hurricanes and Spitfires were replaced with Vulcans and BSR-71 Blackbirds. These aircraft were capable of incredible things and the boffins continued to come up with ever-more ingenious machines as the USA and the Soviet Union in particular were determined to out-do one another.
The result? Some of the greatest aircraft that have ever, and will ever, grace our skies - now gathered together in this exclusive collection.
The ‘Jet Age’ icon that helped win the Cold War
The Vulcan bomber was a symbol of security throughout the Cold War. Capable of a top speed of 645mph and a cruising height of 8 miles this aircraft was an engineering masterpiece. The Vulcan was so ahead of its time when introduced in 1956 it was still used on the front lines nearly three decades later! That’s why we’ve chosen to celebrate the Avro Vulcan in 1:144 die-cast metal. This weighty replica is the perfect tribute to an iconic aircraft, accurate down to the smallest detail.

The ultimate collection of Jet Age aircraft
The biggest problem we faced when creating the ultimate collection of Jet Age military aircraft? Deciding which ones to leave out! We spoke to the experts and have made sure each and every die-cast metal model is a must-have.
So, who made the cut? Well, of course the General Dynamics F-111 had to be in there. First entering service in 1967, this much-feared strategic bomber was still successfully serving in Operation Desert Storm in 1991. We’ve also produced a stunning replica of the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. An absolute beast, this thing could carry seemingly gravity-defying loads such as three heavily-armed Apache helicopters! We also made sure to include the more nimble Canadair Sabre. This aviation legend was there when the Jet Age began, dog-fighting with Russian-backed MiGs over the skies of Korea in the early 1950s. And if that wasn’t enough, you can also expect to see a McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle in the collection. Why the F-15? Well, it’s service record of over 100 combat victories and zero losses made it a no-brainer!
We’ve worked hard to ensure every heavy die-cast metal model is a fitting tribute to these incredible aircraft. We’ve been meticulous in our research to ensure we haven’t missed a detail. But don’t just take our word for it, make sure you see for yourself.
