The category of fighters includes airplane of fighter plastic models from the time of the First World War to the present day. The fighters are not only light single-engine vehicles, but also heavy aircraft, converted from multi-engine bombers. Such fighters could not compete on an equal footing with lighter, one-engine aircraft family. Their main destination was night hunting and ultra-long flights, that is, the time and place was chosen in such a way as to certainly reduce the possibility of meeting with fighters taking to the air.
The category is most represented both in the number of models and in the variety of firms-producers and scales. Aircraft model kits of fighters are most in demand and are produced in scales from 1/24 and up to 1/350 inclusive.
