Modelling the aircraft of the Spanish Civil War


This page is dedicated to modelling the aircraft of the Spanish Civil War using commercially available model kits. Kits are available for many of the aircraft mentioned on my site, and others can be converted from commercially available kits with various degrees of difficulty. Last updated March 26, 2019

If you're intersted in making (or just ogling) models of Spanish Civil War subjects, you can't do better than take a look at the The Spanish Civil War Modelling Sig. I'd also recommend taking a look at the Spanish Civil War modelling group facebook page.

Model kits

Below is a list of kits that have been or are available. This list is probably very incomplete, since short-run kits in particular are only available for, well, a short run. On the other hand, the same kits are often released by different manufacturers (eg. many of the old Frog moulds have been reissued under the names of several Russian manufacturers), or different manufacturers can be assigned to a kit depending on which part of the packaging one looks at. You an follow some of tese tortuous relationships at scalemates.com. I am greatly indebted to Bill Brown and Nic Protonotarios for sending me lists of their large model kit collections, as well as the listings on scalemates. I have now also added the models mentioned by Miranda & Mercado. If a kit has (R) after the name of the manufacturer, it is a resin kit, if it has (V) it is a vacuum-formed kit, if has (M) it is a white metal kit, if it has (C) it is a conversion kit. If it has no suffix, it is an injection moulded polystyrene kit. If you know of any kits to be added, please let me know. Those kits that I have myself are in red text, in case you want to write to me to find out anything more about them (although most are in storage, so not easy to get at). Given the increase in interest in 1:144 and 1:32 kits recently, I have now listed these in separate columns.

Many of the kits listed below are no longer readily available, but some occasionally show up, for example on eBay auctions. For the currently available kits, the best source I know of is Hannants in England, which runs a wonderful web-based mail order system. Another excellent site is the Aviation Megastore in the Netherlands, which carries kits from some of the more obscure manufacturers worldwide. Squadron in the USA also have a good range of kits available. Italian kits is a good source for Italian manufacturers and aircraft, and has a small on-line database of Italian aircraft and the kits and books available for each. I have also included several kits that have been announced for future availability - from experience, many of these will never materialize, and others will be released by other manufacturers, so all of these should be take with a pinch of salt.

I have added a separate section at the bottom of this page with comments and links to particular kit manufacturers.

Model manufacturers

Of particular note are the resin kits produced by Dekno, a firm from Barcelona specialising in Spanish Civil War aircraft. Their early kits are rather crude, but later offerings are higher quality, and the companu seems to be rejuvenated. Omega models have massively expanded their range of Spanish Civil War aircraft kits, and this trend seems likely to continue. Another relative newcomer on the scene is Steelworks models, run by Uwe Borchert, who has produced several Spanish Civil War aircraft - He also has several kits of Spanish Civil War AFVs available, and some very useful aircraft detailing accesories. MPM from the Czech Republic (which also includes Special Hobby and Azur) produce many excellent limited run injection moulded kits with resin and etched detail parts, and their expected releases, particularly in the Azur range, include some real gems (although many of these have still failed to materialise). Pavla, Sword and AML are other Czech companies with smaller high quality ranges, often using the MPM moulds, and Eduard kits, while mainly of "mainstream" subjects, are legendary for their quality and accessories. Dujin from France produce a vast range of high quality resin kits of interwar aircraft, particularly French aircraft. ICM have produced some really nice kits of Russian and German Spanish Civil War subjects, and is now trading again. Aeroclub made many kits and conversions, particularly of British aircraft, but unfortunately are no longer in production following the sad death of Peter Wright in 2010. Rest models is a Russian firm producing high quality resin kits in 1:48 scale - Their first aircraft offerings include a Polikarpov I-15, a Polikarpov R-5 and a very nice looking He 112 V5(V6). Kiwi resins from New Zealand produce some very nice resin kits, mostly with strong New Zealand connections, but also including the CASA Spanish Vildebeest. Also worth mentioning is BUM, a rather odd Spanish company that has re-released several other companies' kits with Spanish Civil War "stickers" (decals, presumably) - unfortunately not all of the aircraft so treated actually served in the Spanish Civil War, and several of those that did are presented in ficticious schemes, but they also produce some kits with airfield accessories and figures, plus Spanish Civil War wargaming sets. As of 2019, the exciting new kids on the block are Dora Wings and AMG (Arsenal Model Group), both of which have added some very high quality
