Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1
Availability: RETIRED & SOLD OUT
A superbly detailed model of R.J. Mitchell's magnificent fighter aircraft. Although twice as many Hawker Hurricanes actually fought in the Battle it was the nimble and graceful Spitfire that captured the British public’s attention… and heart. Our K&C Spit" is in the personal markings of Flight Lieutenant Alan "AL" Deere, a young New Zealander, flying with 54 Squadron during the Battle. Al Deere, who went on to complete a long and distinguished career in the Royal Air force, shot down 12 enemy aircraft between May and September 1940. His Spitfire Mk.1, complete with smoke stains from the gun ports and engine exhausts makes a worthy companion to our earlier released Hawker Hurricanes. "
