Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vc (Scale 1:72)
First flown in 1936, the Supermarine Spitfire is the most legendary and famous fighter plane in history. It was a complex and high-tech plane for the 1930’s and was difficult to produce in numbers at first, however, when war arrived the production problems were eventually sorted and it was produced in greater numbers than any other allied fighter. Indeed it was the only Allied fighter in constant production in WW2. It was also capable of development and this development kept it in line with the best fighters from other nations. The Spitfire rose to fame during the Battle of Britain. Despite the Hurricanes being more numerous and shooting down more enemy planes, it was the Spitfire that captured the world’s imagination, something which it still does today.
This is a brand new tool kit from Airfix and looks really nice. It is well-detailed with fine engraved panel lines and a detailed interior.
