    Jan Zumbach, the famous Polish Battle of Britain fighter ace flew EN951 303 Sqn from late September 1941. Earlier in the year Jan was posted back to 303 as a Flight Commander and only two months later he was promoted to Squadron Leader and appointed to command the Squadron, a duty he performed from May until December 1942.
    It was during this period Zumbach had three personal Spitfires, all of them Mk VBs coded RF-D, and all adorned with a Donald Duck symbol in front of the cockpit on the left hand side. For the third 'Donald', the artwork was unsurprisingly larger and more detailed than on the previous two machines. Similarly, his personal tally was marked by crosses on the left hand side, confirmed kills being outline in white, probable in red and damaged without an outline.
    This kit includes an electric motor for a realistic spinning propeller.
