Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I (Scale 1:48)

The Supermarine Spitfire is arguably the most famous and beautiful aircraft ever to grace the skies. First flying in 1936, R.J. Mitchell's masterpiece was, by 1940, the interceptor of choice for Fighter Command, and the envy of the world's air arms.

Powered by the equally famous Rolls Royce Merlin V12, the spitfire was capable of speeds of over 360mph and had exceptional maneuverability The Spitfire was an excellent dog-fighter, with it's ability to turn inside an opponent; a great strength in the struggles over southern England and the English Channel during the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940.

The Spitfire Mk1 has come to be seen as a symbol of 'The Few', vital to the defense 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 and continues now to be a hugely desirable 'warbird' at air shows.
