Rated 4 out of 5 by from V.C. Collection My children loved builing the V:C: set . The smaller aircraft suit beginners but they needed my help on the Bombers. Although it comes with paints and glue, you still need a stanley knife and tweezers as well. Now hanging from the ceiling, we need a few German planes to set the battle scene

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Airfix VC Icons Kit More models for the same price! When purchased, this was the lowest price for this kit that I could find. Some parts need a little tidying up as can happen with these kits but mostly are fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value It was expensive however when you consider you are getting four models, it is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kits; bargain price...and super service! I had been thinking of buying one of the kits in this set (the Hampden) for a while and when I saw it as part of this set for the same price which meant effectively three free kits plus paints, glue and brushes it was too good a bargain to miss! The click and collect service worked like dream, one to remember for the future and the shop staff very friendly and helpful. Really looking forward to making this set...thoroughly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mr Airfix Victoria cross heroes gift set. This set is great value. 4 different planes with glue and paints. Should keep an avid model maker busy for more than a few days.
