| Description

Scheme: Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Ia N3290 GR-U 92 Squadron 1940

The first production Spitfire Mk.I was delivered to RAF No.19 Squadron at Duxford on 4th August 1938 and heralded the arrival of a future aviation icon. With various upgraded marks of this classic fighter serving throughout WWII, the Spitfire is arguably the most famous fighter aircraft to ever take to the skies.

The Spitfire was a true aviation thoroughbred, possessing striking good looks, yet devastatingly effective in combat. During the aerial duels of the Battle of Britain, its combination of speed, agility and firepower enabled it to take on the feared fighter units of the Luftwaffe, allowing the slightly slower and less agile Hurricane to take a heavy toll of their attacking bomber force.

Airfix Supermarine Spitfire Mk 1a

One of the best Spitfire's out there. One little fit issue on the tail at the back, where there is a pin which you can remove so the tail fits together better. Apart from that great little kit.

Great kit

5/5 Great kit with overall good fit. Only minor issue is the accuracy and fit of the canopy, as has been said on other reviews. I got another boxing of the same kit, and by the great quality of the decals in that kit (until I made a stupid error and put some of the markings in the wrong place, which was entirely my fault), the ones in this kit are probably just as good. Would recommend to beginners and experienced model makers alike.
