The de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen is a twin-boom, twin-engined 1950s–60s British two-seat jet fighter of the Fleet Air Arm designed by de Havilland at Hatfield, Hertfordshire. Developed from an earlier first generation jet fighter, the Sea Vixen was a capable carrier-based fleet defence fighter that served into the 1970s. Initially produced by de Havilland it was later known as the Hawker Siddeley Sea Vixen after de Havilland became a part of the Hawker Siddeley Group in 1960. A single example remains airworthy today in the UK and is displayed regularly at airshows.

de Havilland Sea Vixen FAW.Mk 2

Designed to meet a Royal Air Force and Fleet Air Arm requirement for an all-weather, high-speed jet fighter, the de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen was first flown on September 26, 1951. This carrier-based fighter had twin booms and was the first British aircraft to be armed only with missiles, bombs and rockets. It carried four air-to-air missiles, two unguided rocket packs, and was also capable of carrying four 500 lb or two 1,000 lb bombs. The Sea Vixen was used for two Royal Navy aerobatic teams, but it never served in a war and is perhaps best remembered for its radical design and distinctive appearance.

Aviation72's 1:72 scale Sea Vixen is smartly constructed with a blended mix of diecast metal and plastic components. The upper half of the wing and fuselage are constructed in diecast metal with the bottom of the fuselage and entire twin boom constructed in plastic, providing balance when the model is configured for ground display. The nose of the model highlights the unusual offset canopy with the simulated observer’s flush fitting rectangular shaped "Coal Hole" canopy on the right. The model can be easily configured for ground display, or mounted to its positionable all-metal display stand.
