Discover our collection of diecast models of the De Havilland Vampire - Expertly Crafted, Historically Notable, and Collectible Aircraft Models.

The De Havilland Vampire was a British jet fighter that represented a significant technological advancement in aviation history. Introduced in the late 1940s, it was the second jet fighter to enter service with the Royal Air Force (RAF), shortly after the Gloster Meteor. Known for its distinctive twin-boom design and single jet engine, the Vampire served in both fighter and ground attack roles during its operational life.

Notable variants of the Vampire include the Vampire FB.5 (main production fighter-bomber), Vampire T.11 (two-seat trainer version), and the Sea Vampire (naval version). The Vampire's versatility, as well as its role in transitioning military aviation from propeller-driven to jet-powered aircraft, make it a fascinating subject for military aviation historians and model collectors, especially those interested in the early era of jet fighters.
