Supermarine Spitfire 1A (69″)

£8.00£222.50

This 1:6.4 scale, 69” wingspan replica of this WWII iconic aircraft is set out on well detailed plan sheets and builds into an all wood model featuring working flaps and a retracting undercarriage. A laser cut wood-pack is available, which contains most of the shaped parts needed, such as fuselage formers and wing ribs, but you will need additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the aircraft, as well as all the hardware. 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). It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.

Full Description

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.

This 1:6.4 scale, 69” wingspan replica of this WWII iconic aircraft is set out on well detailed plan sheets and builds into an all wood model featuring working flaps and a retracting undercarriage. A laser cut wood-pack is available, which contains most of the shaped parts needed, such as fuselage formers and wing ribs, but you will need additional sheet and strip wood and ply to complete the aircraft, as well as all the hardware. 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, so please send us information if you make a successful EP version!) It is not suitable for beginners, either to plan building or model flying.
