Airfix has pulled the stops out for this brand-new 1/72 scale kit. The Me410A-1 launched on the Friday morning of the annual IPMS Scale Model World Show in Telford on November 10 2023 and we now have limited stocks available to order direct from the Key Model World Shop.
This new Airfix kit features all plastic components which build an exact and detailed replica of the Me410A-1. It includes two sets of authentic markings and requires glue, paint and basic modelling tools to assemble it.
If you need extra guidance, we have a full news story and video about the model’s release, plus Editor at Large Chris Clifford has been busy behind the scenes putting together a full build guide for this new release. Read the full feature online at Key Model World.
The Messerschmitt Me410 was developed as a heavy fighter but went on to perform several roles such as night fighter, bomber destroyer and reconnaissance. It entered service in 1943 as a replacement for the Me210 with features including twin gun barbettes. Production of the Messerschmitt Me410 ended during August 1944.
Just one example survives today maintained by the Royal Air Force Museum at their Midlands RAF Cosford site. It was used by Airfix in production of this new 1/72 scale kit.
