Airfix 1/48 Gloster Javelin Model Kit
Model Number: A12007
The Airfix Gloster Javelin Model Kit in 1/48 scale from the plastic aircraft model kits range accurately recreates the real life British interceptor aircraft.
This Airfix aircraft model requires paint and glue to complete. This is just one of many great kits from the Airfix plastic models range.
For this model we recommend using paints from the following ranges.
We also highly recommend the following ranges for tools and accessories.
The Gloster Javelin was an all-weather interceptor aircraft that served with Britain's Royal Air Force in the late 1950s and most of the 1960s. It was a T-tailed delta-wing aircraft designed for night and all-weather operations and was the last aircraft to bear the Gloster name.
This is the first injection moulded 1:48 Gloster Javelin to be produced and features include detailed crew access ladder, optional open or closed canopy, removable intake and jet pipe covers along with optional detailed armament and fuel tanks. The model also has poseable elevators, ailerons, rudder, flaps and airbrakes

Looks really good in-box
Have not started building the kit yet, but it looks really good in the box. Detailing is good. Panellines is not as fine as for example on a Hasegawa kit. More between a Trumpeter and a Italeri kit. The choice of subject is fantastic! The javelin is a big ugly 50:s jet. Just my cup of tea!

The fuss and wait for a 1/48 mainstream injection moulded Javelin was worth it! Arguably Airfix's best since the Lightning! Crisply moulded, with a wealth of detail and a clever breakdown of parts. Definately one to have.

The Gloster Javelin
I first got to know about the Gloster Javelin during my school days when my father said he would take me to school on his new Vespa. Instead he took me to London and I picked up the Gloster Javelin in 1.72 scale from FROG. Now I am 60 and went through the Wonderland Models website. It now brings back memories of my first kit but this is something bigger, 1.48 scale, and better. I do not know whether to build it this time or keep it as a treasured collectors model. I Just Love it

Excellent kit out of the box
The new Gloster Javelin model kit is another fantastic release from Airfix and even surpasses the recent Sea Vixen in detail. The kit is very nicely detailed, the panel lines are crisp and clear with no flash on the sprues. There are some nice touches such as positional flaps, FOD covers and crew ladder, cockpit also looks to be comprehensively detailed. The clear parts are, well actually, very clear with no discernible distortion. The instructions are well thought out and detailed and clearly show the options for the two variants that can be built. The decals are also very nicely printed and in register and give the options for 3 aircraft. All in all very pleased with this purchase and can't wait to start building. This will build up to be an excellent kit out of the box, definitely recommended

Nice Model - shame about the legs! Found the undercarriage buckled under it's own weight - die cast replacements might be worth it?
