Full Description

A laser-cut wood-pack is available, which contains most of the shaped parts needed, such as fuselage formers and wing ribs, along with the additional wood pack which contains most of the sheet, strip and plywood to complete the aircraft. A moulded plastic cockpit canopy and engine cowling are also available for this model, as well as an aluminium propeller spinner. The ideal power source is either a .75 -.80 cu. in. 4-stroke or a .60 cu. in. 2-stroke but experienced modellers should be able to convert it to electric power (details not supplied).

The Supermarine Spitfire was one of the most outstanding fighter aircraft of  WWII, much loved by its pilots, and it played a pivotal role in the Battle of Britain. Its airframe proved to be extremely adaptable, capable of using far more powerful engines and taking on far greater loads than its original role as a short-range interceptor had anticipated. This would lead to 24 marks of Spitfire, and many sub-variants within the marks, being produced throughout the war and beyond. Throughout the twelve-year development process (1935-1948) there were no outstanding failures of the basic design, which is a real testament to the original genius of R.J. Mitchell, his successor Joseph Smith, and the design teams they led.
