A two-seat carrier-based fighter, the de Havilland Sea Vixen was introduced in the late 1950s and served with the Royal Navy through the 1970s. Though the aircraft did not officially participate in any wars, it was involved in a number of Cold War-era conflicts in the Middle East and Africa. Only 145 were manufactured.
This limited edition, 1/72 scale, die cast model replicates the twin-boom fighter and features engraved panel lines, a glazed canopy, a well-equipped cockpit, extended landing gear, authentic RAE markings from 1984, and a display stand. Measures approximately 9¼" long with an 8½" wingspan.
