Frontline Hobbies is proud to present this fantastic selection of plastic model aircraft kits. There is certainly plenty of options to take your fancy, with the highest level of detail on each set and an extremely wide array of fighter jets, helicopters, commercial aircraft and many more. Whatever your preference of design is, military or civilian, older or more modern, there is bound to be the right model for you.

Pre-WWII Plastic Model Aircraft Kits

If your interests lie in older military aircraft, then browse through Frontline Hobbies’ collection of pre-WWII aircraft kits, which includes the very finest early fighter planes from across the globe. Revell for example offer some excellent triplane kits such as the 1/72 scale Sopwith Triplane and the Fokker Dr.1 Triplane. There are also larger kits like Special Hobby’s 1/48 Sop with Schneider and Academy’s 1/32 Nieuport 17.

WWII Plastic Model Aircraft Kits

Frontline Hobbies’ WWII selection is extensive. With over 900 kits to choose from, you can find stunning replica aircraft models to suit your needs, whatever your budget might be. From the larger end of the spectrum, we have 1/24 scale models from Airfix of classics such as the Hawker Hurricane, which forged its reputation as one of the greatest fighters in the skies during WWI in its integral defensive role in the Battle of Britain, and the iconic Supermarine Spitfire, the only RAF aircraft to be produced continuously throughout the war, such was its importance.

Modern Military Plastic Model Aircraft Kits

There are also over 800 modern military aircraft kits, with the sleek, cutting edge precision of design in stealth aircraft like the F22A Raptor faithfully rendered to a 1/144 scale by Trumpeter, or the Chinese J-20 Mighty Dragon model kit. The J-20 has only been in service only as of 2017, but has the capability it is said to be developed into a high performance stealth aircraft comparable to the F-22 Raptor, if given appropriate engines. Trumpeter also offer top of the range larger models such as the 1/32 A-4M Skyhawk, the lightweight carrier-capable attack aircraft, developed in the US in the early 1950s.

Helicopters Plastic Model Kits

Among the many brands we have on offer, Italeri has a great collection of helicopter model kits, including the notorious hybrid beast, the V-22 Osprey, known for combining the vertical take off and functionality of the helicopter with the long-range, high speed performance of a turboprop aircraft.

Civilian Aircraft Plastic Model Kits

If you also have interest in aircraft outside of a military context, then be sure to take a look at Frontline Hobbies’ set of civilian aircraft kits, which includes many modern commercial aircraft and such classics as Minicraft’s 1/200 model of the Spruce Goose, the era defining flying boat, known for having the largest wing span of any aircraft ever produced.
