      Out of stock
     
  Bristol Blenheim Mk1 of 62 Sqn, RAF Butterworth, Penang in 1941. This example was flown by Arthur Scarf, who was awarded the Victoria Cross while flying the aircraft. Limited edition of only 1,000 pieces, with uniquely numbered card. Sold out at launch and already hard to find. Length 7.25 inches Wingspan 9.25 inches

When the rest of his Force was destroyed by Japanese aircraft on takeoff Squadron Leader Scarf continued to attack the invading Japanese forces at Singora alone. He was Attacked by fighters on the way to and from the raid and did not survive his wounds. He was posthumously awarded the V.C. in 1946.

Although only entering RAF service in 1937 by the outbreak of the Second World War very few Blenheim 1s remained in service with UK-based bomber squadrons, most having been superseded in the bomber role by the much improved MkIV. However the Mk1 continued in service as conversion and crew trainers with OTUs.
