The Spitfire was designed by Reginald Mitchell of The Supermarine Aviation Works and is arguably the most elegant but deadly aircraft of World War 2. The beautiful fuselage curves, the distinctive elliptical wings, plus its legendary service in action, make it one of the most recognisable and loved aircraft in the world. The prototype first flew from Eastleigh Aerodrome, near Southampton, England in March 1936. This kit is designed for you to build a traditionally constructed, rubber powered, free flight model of a Spitfire. The kit includes the materials (other than paints) to complete a spitfire with plain white covering, so you can decide to do your own favourite scheme.
