1/48 Aircraft Scale Model Kits
Take command of the skies with our collection of 1/48 scale aircraft kits. All of the models displayed here come from the very best, industry-leading manufacturers — including Airfix, Eduard, Hobby Boss, Trumpeter and ICM — guaranteeing quality and peace of mind.
The 1/48 scale is very popular with collectors and 1/48 scale model aeroplanes are no exception. It’s an ideal size for “special projects” and for anyone looking to put a lot more detail into their model aircraft and to step up from the smaller 1/72 aircraft model scale.
All 1/48 Aircraft Model Kits have detailed product descriptions including kit features as well as information concerning the subject of the model itself to help you make the best-informed choice when choosing a model kit to buy.
The benefits of 1/48 scale aircraft models
The bigger size makes them easier for many to work on and to customise, making them more suitable for people with larger hands and for beginners who might find the smaller scales more difficult at first.
This size also allows for very cool, very detailed aircraft modelling. You only need to check out our Airfix 1/48 products and Eduard Profipack sets for an example of how wonderfully detailed military aeroplanes of this scale can be.
At this scale, ¼ inch represents 1 foot in length.
