history
The English Electric Lightning is a supersonic fighter aircraft of the Cold War era. It was designed, developed, and manufactured by English Electric, which was subsequently absorbed by the newly-formed British Aircraft Corporation. It was then marketed as the BAC Lightning. The Lightning was the only all-British Mach 2 fighter aircraft and was the first aircraft capable of supercruise. The Lightning was used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF). Although it was the RAF's primary interceptor for more than two decades it was never required to attack another aircraft.

Editor's note: Ryszard says little about the model, except that it's the 1.48 Airfix kit. We'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

I agree, an excellent overall finish. This Airfix kit never knew what fine treatment it would get when it left the factory! -Sean H
