First flown in 1936, the Supermarine Spitfire is the most legendary and famous fighter plane in history. It was a complex and high tech plane for the 1930’s and was difficult to produce in numbers at first, however when war arrived the production problems were eventually sorted and it was produced in greater number than any other allied fighter. Indeed it was the only Allied fighter in constant production in WW2.
It was also capable of development and this development kept it in line with the best fighters from other nations. The Spitfire rose to fame during the Battle of Britain. Despite the Hurricane being more numerous and shooting down more enemy planes, it was the Spitfire that captured the world’s imagination, something which it still does today.
The Spitfire 22 was one of the last Spitfires and had the redesigned Laminar flow wing and the Rolls Royce 37 litre V-12 Griffon engine.
This is Airfix’s kit of the Spitfire F Mk 22/24, which features engraved panel lines with a fully detailed cockpit. Markings are for 2 post WW2 RAF aircraft.
