AZM74020 1/72 Supermarine Spitfire LF Mk.IXE 'Red Star'
- Customer Reviews
The Mk IXe was similar to the Mk IXc but the 4 7.7mm machine guns were replaced by 2 12.7mm heavy machine guns. The Spitfire Mk IX and XVI were in front line service until the end of WW2 and some still served after the war despite the superior Griffon powered Spitfires and also the Hawker Tempest being in service.
AZ Models are a Czech based manufacturer with a wide range of kits. The Spitfire IX kit is an all new kit produced with the same moulding technology as more well known kits. This gives this kit an excellent level of detail, with fine engraved panel lines. Many modellers think this is currently the best Spitfire Mk IX in 1/72.
Markings are provided for 4 Russian Air Force Spitfire IXe's.
