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.

This is Eduard’s New tool kit of the Spitfire Mk I, which is possibly the most detailed Spitfire I kit in 1/48. This is a double kit (2 kits in 1 box) and you can make an early Spitfire with 2 blade propellor or the Mk Ia, as used in the Battle of Britain. The set comes with etch metal parts and canopy masks for both kits. It also has decals for 10 different RAF Spitfires, including ones flown by well known aces, plus a 1/48 resin figure of legendary air ace, Douglas Bader.
