DescriptionAirfix Gift Sets are ideal for more advanced modellers and include glue, acrylic paints and brushes. Airfix D-Day Air Assault model kit 1:72.
On the eve of June the 6th 1944, the vast majority of mainland Europe was either under the control of Hitler's Nazi regime, or heavily influenced by it. Only Britain stood free in Europe and openly opposed the fascist regime then seeking to control the world. Supported by the United States and Canada, as well as troops from the then occupied nations, the 6th of June marked the Western Allies return to France after the humiliation of the evacuation from Dunkirk in 1940.
This model set features a set up of the temporary airfields used by the Allies to fly more sorties into France and to be closer to the action. Some of these airfields were so close to the frontline they suffered mortar attacks.
These airfields were to prove their worth, and with the help of Allied airpower, Hitler's armies were pushed further and further back, culminating in the defeat of Nazi Germany just eleven months later.
