A12001A Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Ia 1:24 Scale

The immortal Spitfire was the most famous fighter of the Second World War and one of the greatest warplanes of all time. When the Battle of Britain began in the summer of 1940 there were nineteen squadrons of Spits in action. The two Spitfires for which markings are supplied represent different moments of the battle as it raged from the hot summer days into the cold winter of 1940.

The first is the iconic DW-K of No.610 'County of Chester' Squadron, with its large code letters and oversized roundels that instantly evoke the Battle of Britain. Based at Biggin Hill, squadron code DW-K was initially believed to be displayed on the aircraft P9495 (included in this kit) which joined the squadron in June 1940, and was eventually damaged in a dogfight with a Messerchimitt 109 in August 1940, these code were then transferred to another Spitfire.

The other aircraft is the X4561, squadron code QJ-B of No.92 Squadron based at Manston, Kent in December 1940 and reflects the changes to operational camouflage at the time with the underside of the port wing being painted black as a recognistion aid.

This fabulous model has a detailed cockpit, Merlin engine, gun ports and other extensive detail.

A02102 Airfix Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Va 1:72 scale

Without doubt, the Supermarine Spitfire was one of the most important aircraft of WWII, with more being produced that any other British aircraft type it was also in production throughout the war. The Mk.V version of the Spitfire was produced in greater numbers than any other mark and gave the RAF a combat advantage throughout most of 1941.

Entering service with No.92 Squadron at Biggin Hill, the Spitfire Va was powered by the new Merlin 45 engine and incorporated the ‘a’ wing, which retained the eight machine gun armament of earlier machines. Pitted against the Messerschmitt Bf 109F, the Spitfire Va proved to be superior at higher altitudes and was generally more heavily armed. As the most produced version, the Spitfire mark V saw significant development during its service career.

Livery A: No. 164 Argentine (British) Squadron, Royal Air Force Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, April-September 1942
Livery B: P7666 EB-Z 'Observer Corps' 41 Squadron Hornchurch 1941

A02074 Airfix Grumman Martlet Mk.IV 1:72 scale

A02074 Airfix Grumman Martlet Mk.IV 1:72 scale

At a time when the Royal Navy were desperately in need of an effective single engine fighter, the new American F4F Wildcat was seen as the ideal solution and was immediately pressed into service. Known as the Martlet in Fleet Air Arm service, this diminutive aircraft was used operationally right through to the end of the war in Europe.

The Fleet Air Arm introduced the American produced F-4F Martlet (Wildcat) to combat in WWII a full year before the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor. One of the most distinctive features of this diminutive fighter was the narrow track undercarriage, which had to be manually deployed by the pilot. With a crank handle placed on the right hand side of the cockpit, the pilot would have to switch to holding the control column in his left hand and crank the retraction handle thirty times with his right hand, in the seconds immediately following take off.
