The Supermarine will always be remembered as the aircraft that brought German conquest to a halt. That feat was accomplished by rhe MK1 version of the Supermarine Spitfire. Later on more powerful and better armed versions of the Spitfire would enter service with all Allied air forces,EVEN the United States.
After The Luftwaffe entered the FW 190 into service, The raf,who were flying Spitfire MKV, found themselves at a distinct disadvantage. Although the new Griffon engine was starting production, they were not ready for widespread service use.
Thus the Spitfire MKlX was born. With a 1600hp Merlin engine , Air superiority was regained by the Allies, never to be lost again.At this point in time there were numerous variations in wing armament for the Spitfire and although the è`version eventually reigned supreme, the `c`wing was produced in large b numbers.
Airfix have produced an accurate version of the most produced version of the Supermarine Spitfire. Two marking options are offered with this kit. Bear in mind that they a a vast multitude of aftermarket decal sheets available for the Spitfire.
