During WW2 the British air ministry ordered a successor to the Spitfire. Supermarine designed a new wing to be fitted to the late Griffon powered Spitfires and the result was the Spiteful. Although the Spiteful could achieve speeds approaching 500mph the advent of jet propulsion meant it never went into full production. One of the prototypes was developed into a naval fighter for use on aircraft carriers and this was known as the Seafang. However, the Hawker Sea Fury was preferred and the navy was more interested in new jet technology. The Seafang was used to develop the Supermarine Attacker, which was one of the first jet fighters in service (although only briefly) with the Royal Navy.
AZ model are a model company from the Czech Republic. They specialise in limited run plastic kits, usually of subjects that the main manufacturers don't do. This kit is a re-issue of a kit released a few years ago. It is injection moulded plastic and it looks quite well detailed with fine engraved panel lines but a bit more skill will be required to build this kit than would be needed in a mass produced kit, so it's not a kit for novices. There are decals for three different Royal Navy aircraft.
