The Supermarine Spitfire needs little introduction, one of the best-known aircraft deployed by the Royal Air Force in the Battle of Britain, as British and German forces struggled for control of the skies over the English Channel. The Mk. I had a streamlined form with elliptical wings designed for speed and was powered by a Merlin engine. This legendary bird has received a complete makeover from Tamiya's designers with new tooling for an updated and more accurate appearance in the 1/48 Aircraft Series! 1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit. Can be assembled to recreate many of the extensive Spitfire Mk. I variants. Points of interest include superb detailing in areas such as the cockpit and panel lines. Separate parts are used to recreate the main landing gear and horizontal stabilizers. Comes with 1 figure depicting a seated pilot. Photo-etched parts are included to recreate the radiator, oil cooler, gun sight, seatbelt components, and more! 3 marking options.
