Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VIII & IX (83″)

£6.50£323.50

This 1:5.33 scale, 2.1 metre wingspan R/C model plan of the famous Spitfire represents the Mk.VIII & IX, perhaps the finest of the breed. The big three-sheet plan can be used to build either the Mk.VIII or Mk.IX, and includes provision for the installation of a retractable undercarriage and working flaps. 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.

Reflector Gunsight MkII

If the cockpit of your R/C model Allied WWII fighter looks a bit empty, perhaps this is what’s missing? It’s the reflector gunsight that’s mounted in clear view at the top of the instrument panel. Your fighter is not really complete without one!

Full Description

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.

This 1:5.33 scale, 2.1 metre wingspan R/C model plan of the famous Spitfire represents the Mk.VIII & IX, perhaps the finest of the breed. The big three-sheet plan can be used to build either the Mk.VIII or Mk.IX, and includes provision for the installation of a retractable undercarriage and working flaps. 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, 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.
