The Spitfire Mk 21 followed on from the Mk XIV and Mk XVIII and featured a redesigned wing and many more minor changes. At first the changes were not succcessful and the plane was dangerous to fly. However, the it was modified and the faults corrected and the plane entered operational service right at the end of WW2. Some were fitted with a contra-rotating propeller, which cancelled the torque swing on take off and landing.

Special Hobby are a model company from the Czech Republic and are part of the same group as MPM. They specialise in limited run plastic kits, usually of subjects that the main manufacturers don't do.

This kit is injection moulded plastic with 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.
Markings are provided for 3 different Mk 21's.
