But only in plas­tic. The Shut­tle­worth Col­lec­tion and the In­ter­na­tional Plas­tic Modellers’ So­ci­ety UK’S Bramp­ton Scale Model Club have been con­firmed as Guin­ness World Record hold­ers for ‘The Most Peo­ple Con­struct­ing Air­craft Mod­els’. Plas­tic kit manufactur­er Air­fix sup­plied 400 kits for a 1/72 scale WWI Al­ba­tros D.VA and 369 were com­pleted, sur­pass­ing the record pre­vi­ously held by the RAF Mu­seum for 250 mod­els.

“It was a real com­mu­nity event with vis­i­tors of all ages in­volved in­clud­ing Air Cadets and Scouts. Ev­ery­one had a lot of fun so we look for­ward to the next chal­lenge!” said Shut­tle­worth’s Com­mu­ni­ca­tions & Mar­ket­ing Man­ager Ciara Harper. The of­fi­cial Guin­ness World Record cer­tifi­cate is dis­played in the Col­lec­tion’s Vis­i­tor Cen­tre at Old War­den.
