Is the basing permanent or magnetic?

It's permanent using the last of my old Raiden Miniatures resin bases.

those old "Leading Edge" planes are the best. Needs to be more of them tho.

The "Leading Edge" miniatures were designed by a gentleman from my home town who, I think, worked in the aerospace industry. I think he's getting on in years now. They are superb models with a minimum of detail, all the better for that, in my opinion.

I've just dug out a catalogue for Leading Edge from 1996!
Some of the aircraft listed aren't available from Museum Miniatures, the CANT Z505b floatplane and Gloster Gladiator
for instance, though others, like the Japanese, Yugoslavian and Rumanian must have been later additions to the range.
The designer had a particular interest in the Balkans air campaign, I think he wrote a couple of articles for Miniature Wargames on the subject.

Just been inspired to buy some more from Museum!

Museum Miniatures make good planes.

They're cleanly cast and quite detailed and as good as original Raiden planes (recent Raiden don't seem so good?).

Museum planes are a bit bigger. I think they're about 1/250th scale if you measure them.

I think they're lovely models and good value as well, especially if you get them in the annual sale. The Fw190 is particularly nice, although my favourite is the Blenheim.

Went onto Museum Miniatures website, but they have no aircraft listed. I had previously purchased some Spitfires and Hurricanes with tropical filters from them.
