Available from 1959 to approx 1963.
Aircraft in 1/96 scale about 9 although info about them is difficult to find.
Ships in 1/1200 scale approx 34 boxes although if the ship was the same class as another it was the same with a different box.
I believe the Dorking Model Shop has a display of the above.
A book by Donald Hood titled Eaglewall's Table Top Navy was printed in 2011 but it may be expensive.

I could have sworn we had an Eaglewall thread but nothing not even on the old site, so thanks for starting one.

Paraphrasing Arthur Ward's Classic Kits:

The Eagle comic that featured Dan Dare and as part of a publicity campaign in partnered with Dorking Foundary who re-released their Vulcan branded WWII kits under the Eagle name. They added a range of ships, many kits were reboxings of the same sprues to features sister ships.

I know for a fact though that Pyro's 1/1200 British and German ships were from the Eagle moulds and it appears Eaglewall also released Pyro's antique firearms and "Design-a-plane" set.

The kit company folded in 1964.

From John Burns PAK-20

The first 5 were originally issued by Vulcan, Eagle purchased the molds in 1957.
#1 Spitfire IX, 1/96
#2 Hurricane II, 1/97
#3 Bf-109G, 1/98
#4 Fw-190A/5, 1/96
#5 Ju-87B, 1/94

These next 4 were Eagle/Eaglewall
#6 Me-163B, 1/98
#7 Gloster E28/39, 1/96
#8 P-51C, 1/96
#9 Typhoon Ib, 1/93 (maybe same as TT below)

Unsure about these:
360 Design-a-Plane (ex-Pyro)
?? Anson, 1/96
?? Battle, 1/96
?? Blenheim, 1/96
?? Typhoon Ib, 1/93 (TT=Table Top Air Force kits, last before folding)
?? Ju-88

Bagged kits, with header card were re-issued by French company SITAP - confirmed are 2,4,5,8,9 but likely all 1-9.

I recall an older brother having a Me163 kit when I was a youngster. I was unimpressed that he never properly finished it & the bits kind of "dispersed" over time. Crude by todays standards but as I recall, the molding was very crisp & clean.

Thanks for that the P51 was the missing piece
They issued the Design a Plane but not the others.
