As the final variants of the Spitfire to enter service, the Rolls-Royce Griffon powered Mk.22/24 were very different from the prototype aircraft that took to the sky in 1936. Double the weight and possessing more than twice the power, the last Spitfires had an increased climb rate of 80% over the prototype and were around 100mph faster.

Built in greater numbers than any other Allied fighter of WWII, the Spitfire was in production throughout the Second World War and underwent almost constant development during this time. As the last of their breed, these mighty Rolls-Royce Griffon powered monsters represented the pinnacle of piston engined fighter design and whilst much changed from the first fighters arriving at Duxford in the summer of 1938, still managing to retain their unmistakable Spitfire heritage.

An oldy but a goody.

This kit is the 1997 moulding of the 22/24 which also served as the base for the Seafire 46/47 kit. A very enjoyable and simple kit, with good fit, it's a shame that the parts to make a Seafire 46/47 are not included, but hopefully that will be re-released at some point. Not the most sophisticated kit, but a great build and it gets the shape right!
