Vickers Wellington MK II History:

The Vickers Wellington was a British twin engined, long range medium bomber. It was designed during the mid-1930s at Brooklands in Weybridge, Surrey. Led by Vickers Armstrong’s chief designer Rex Pierson; a key feature of the aircraft is its geodetic airframe fuselage structure, which was principally designed by Barnes Wallis. Development had been started in response to Air MinistrySpecification B.9/32, issued in the middle of 1932, for a bomber for the Royal Air Force.

This specification called for a twin-engined day bomber capable of delivering higher performance than any previous design. During the development process, performance requirements such as for the tare weight changed substantially, and the engine used was not the one originally intended.

The Wellington was used as a night bomber in the early years of the Second World War, performing as one of the principal bombers used by Bomber Command. During 1943, it started to be superseded as a bomber by the larger four-engined “heavies” such as the Avro Lancaster. The Wellington continued to serve throughout the war in other duties, particularly as an anti-submarine aircraft.

It holds the distinction of having been the only British bomber that was produced for the duration of the war, and of having been produced in a greater quantity than any other British-built bomber. The Wellington remained as first-line equipment when the war ended, although it had been increasingly relegated to secondary roles. The Wellington was one of two bombers named after Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, the other being the Vickers Wellesley.

A larger heavy bomber aircraft designed to Specification B.1/35, the Vickers Warwick, was developed in parallel with the Wellington; the two aircraft shared around 85% of their structural components. Many elements of the Wellington were also re-used in a civil derivative, the Vickers VC.1 Viking.

About Cobi Brick Sets:

Cobi brick sets are compatible with all other top quality brick brands.  Cobi Bricks are made in Poland and the sets are full of unique parts made for adding realism to each set.  These sets may require more attention to build due to the numerous parts and “layered” approach that Cobi Brick sets use.  Cobi Brick sets come with super detailed and easy to use colored instructions.

Are COBI Sets appropriate for children?

COBI Brick Sets are great for children and adults but you should be aware that younger children will need help with larger sets due to the huge number of parts and layered building style. We always encourage trying out one of the 1:48 scale tank sets to start out as they are smaller and are a great way to test the legendary COBI Brick quality.

About Warbricks.com

Warbricks.com is a family owned small business (Mom, and three children 13 and under). When we started Warbricks after we saw how much our own children loved playing with Cobi Tanks and airplanes.  We believe your family and loved ones will love them as well.

Did you know this product page was completed by a kid? Warbricks is designed to provide life skills to our children so that they have options in addition to whatever career path they choose through life. Every order provides our children an opportunity to learn customer service, shipping, and web design/search engine optimization skills. In addition to skills, the children earn money for savings, spending and giving so that they can experience the benefits of charity.

What to expect when you order:

Once your order is processed, you will receive an email with a tracking number that shows, on a map, where in the country your shipment is!  We always properly represent our inventory and if there is a problem or we make a mistake we will reach out and let you know ASAP!  We try to respond to all customer inquiries quickly but please remember that we are balancing work, school and family life!  You can contact us here.  We will always try to respond and address your concerns.

How COBI Pre-Orders work:

COBI Bricks are made in Europe and are shipped via shipping container to the east coast. We have no control over when they arrive as that is handled by COBI’s USA office. We do get approximate lead times and we make sets available for pre-order approximately 1-2 months before the sets are expected to arrive.  COBI sets do sometimes get delayed for various reasons but we do make a huge effort to ship out all pre-orders as soon as they arrive at our home business.

Shipping costs are very high for us due to the size of COBI boxes and the wight of the sets, so if you order multiple sets we typically send them out together and will set them aside until the pre-order set comes in. We encourage customers to make separate orders if they want the in stock sets to arrive before a pre-order set.
