During World War II, RAF pilot Neville Duke was the top Allied fighter ace in the Mediterranean Theatre. From 1941 to 1944, Duke flew 486 sorties and was credited with 27 aerial victories and two shared, one probable, six damaged, and two shared destroyed on the ground. After the war Duke became one of the world's most successful test pilots, flying for the Hawker Company. At one time he held the world air speed record flying a Hawker Hunter F Mk.3 at 727.63 mph along the south coast of England.

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk was a single-engine fighter and ground attack aircraft. First flown on October 14, 1938, the P-40 was used by most Allied powers during World War II, and remained in service until the end of the war. The P-40 performed well as an air superiority fighter, at times suffering severe losses but also taking a very heavy toll of enemy aircraft. It was the third most produced American fighter aircraft after the P-51 and P-47. By November 1944 when production ended, 13,738 P-40s had been built. The British and Soviet air forces used the name Kittyhawk for models equivalent to the P-40D and later variants.


Oxford presents a range of value priced, high quality, die-cast model airplanes. Every model is crafted using specifications of the original aircraft.
