The designers (Robin Fowler) aim was to produce a model that any basic low-wing pilot could fly without any fuss. So the plans for an Mk.IX were drawn up and construction could begin. The details like cannon blisters, barrels and radiators have been deliberately left off to keep the design as simple as possible.
The construction is traditional, and with a dolly or hand-launch, she flies so well.

Probably the most famous and best-loved of all Spitfires still flying today, MH434 was built in 1943 at Vickers, Castle Bromwich. Since 1970, it has participated across Europe as a key performer in the most famous airshows. MH434 is based at the historic airfield, Duxford (now home to the Imperial War Museum), where it is maintained and operated with great pride by the Old Flying Machine Company (OFMC).
What’s in a Short Kit? – A short kit usually contains, where available, the plan, the laser/CNC cut wood pack, additional wood pack, canopy, cowl or any other available Glass Fibre or plastic moulded items.
What’s in a Laser or CNC Cut Wood Pack? – A CNC or laser cut wood pack contains most, if not all, of the intricately shaped parts shown on the plan, which would be difficult or time-consuming to cut out by hand. It does not contain any sheet or strip wood, which you will need to buy separately. Alternatively, you can purchase an Additional Wood Pack, if available. Our Laser or CNC Cut Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and lite ply and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model, such as hardwoods, metals and GRP sheets.
