Avro Anson Aircraft Models

Explore our collection of diecast models of the Avro Anson - Precision Crafted, Historically Significant, and Collectible Airplane Models.

The Avro Anson was a British twin-engine, multi-role aircraft that served with distinction during World War II. Initially designed for maritime reconnaissance, its role quickly expanded to include bomber training, transport, and liaison duties. First flown in 1935, the Anson was the Royal Air Force's first aircraft with a retractable undercarriage.

Throughout its service life, the Anson was appreciated for its reliability and adaptability. Key variants included the Mk I for coastal reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare, and the Mk II used extensively in the Commonwealth Air Training Plan. The Avro Anson's significant role in training thousands of Allied aircrew, along with its operational versatility, makes it a subject of great interest for aviation historians and model collectors, particularly those with a focus on the RAF's history and the training aircraft of WWII.
