Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Ia (1/48 Scale) Aircraft Model Kit

Sorry, this item is out of stock


The Supermarine Spitfire was, by 1940, the interceptor of choice for Fighter Command. It was capable of speeds of over 360mph and had exceptional maneuverability. An excellent dog-fighter, the Spitfire Mark I is seen as a symbol of "The Few", vital to the defence of the United Kingdom against the previously all-conquering Luftwaffe. Along with the Hurricane, it cemented its place in history during the Battle of Britain.
