Brilliance At Scale

Beacon Models is thrilled to announce that we are developing a range of plastic scale model kits that will set a new standard of quality, detail and precision. We aim to produce exceptional kits for the discerning hobbyist.

The Few

Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary Collection in 1/144

We are excited to announce our debut collection of model kits, commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. In order to develop this project, your support will be invaluable.

Our Kickstarter campaign, launching in early 2021, will give you exclusive access to early backer rewards and prices! We intend to produce four collections of model kits featuring RAF and Luftwaffe aircraft from the Battle of Britain.

The more funds we raise, the more kits will be unlocked for you to pledge for and receive as backer rewards.

‘The Few’ will be a collection of plastic scale model kits in 1/144 scale featuring iconic aircraft that fought in the Battle of Britain. 2020 marks the 80th anniversary of the event, and we want to produce model kits that will allow scale models and tabletop gamers to build a collection of these aircraft. The models will maintain the highest standards of accuracy and fidelity to meet the needs of serious scale modellers, however they are also suitable for tabletop gamers.

For the modellers, we will ensure that the kits faithfully represent the aircraft with accurately presented dimension, and fine details rendered in exquisite detail using cutting edge tooling technology. This will be consistent across the entire collection leaving no gaps in availability or compromises in quality.

For the gamers, we have designed the kits so that they can be easily assembled in a robust configuration that is suitable for the tabletop, featuring mounting holes for flying bases, optional raised undercarriage and blade-less propeller spinners. We will also release generic squadron decals so that multiple aircraft from any unit of the period can be easily represented. The variety of decals allow the models to be used with a variety of bases and tabletop game rules of the customer’s choice.

Who are we?

Beacon Logo

Beacon Models is a collaboration between two expert plastic kit designers, Will Jayne and Bryan Wall. Together, they aim to produce the best kits on the market.

The founders met at IPMS Telford in 2019. When Bryan was looking for the next big thing, Will suggested working on kits together and Beacon Models began to take shape.

A great model company needs great customers, which is why we need your help and support in realising this vision. This Kickstarter will pave the way for many more exciting model kits in various scales and periods.
