Full Description

The model is of conventional all-wood construction, but a moulded plastic cockpit canopy, engine cowling and a metal propeller spinner are also available, as is a laser-cut wood pack. This aeroplane was designed to be powered by a four-stroke glow engine, 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.

Designed by the superb Brian Tayor. The Mk.VIII Spitfire was introduced in 1942 in response to the threat from the Luftwaffe’s Fw190s. Powered by the more powerful Rolls Royce Merlin 60 engine it was an extremely effective fighter, and from then on Spitfires were always equal or superior to any other piston-engined fighter.

What’s in an Additional Wood Pack?

Our Additional Wood Packs contain MOST of the necessary sheet and strip wood needed to complete a model being built from a Sarik Hobbies plan and using the associated Laser Cut Wood Pack, if available. We stock a wide range of balsa, ply and spruce in popular sheet and strip sizes but even so we cannot guarantee to be able to supply all the wood necessary to complete each model. So some additional purchases may be required from other modeling wood stockists if not available from Sarik Hobbies. Our Additional Wood Packs only contain balsa, ply and spruce wood in the stock sizes as used by our suppliers and do not include other materials that may be required to complete the model such as hardwoods, metals & GRP sheets.
