The Airfix 1/48 English Electric Lightning F1/F1A/F2/F3 from the plastic aircraft model kits range accurately recreates the real life British interceptor Jet. This model requires paint and glue to complete.

Used as the RAF’s primary interceptor for more than two decades, the English Electric Lightning was the only all-British Mach 2 fighter aircraft. Powered by a Rolls-Royce Avon Turbojet engine, pilots often described it as “being saddled to a skyrocket”. The lightning retired from RAF service in the 1980s and was never required to shoot down a hostile aircraft.
