EDK84179 1/48 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Ia Weekend
- Customer Reviews
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.
Eduard are a Czech based manufacturer famed for their model accessories but they have in the last few years released a successful range of kits. The Weekend editions contain the same plastic parts as the other Eduard kits but without the extras.
This kit has highly detailed and quite possibly the best ever Spitfire kit in 1/48, along with Eduard's earlier Spitfire kits. Decals are included for four different RAF aircraft.
