    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.
