George "Grumpy" Unwin flew the Mk IA over Dunkirk. He was excited to receive the new MK IB armed with cannons. This was before he realized the new B models were temperamental and the guns often jammed. In September of 1940, No. 19 Squadron exchanged their B models for older A models. Grumpy's new machine, P9546 QV-H, proved its worth during the Battle of Britain, with Grumpy downing three Bf 109s.

Supermarine Spitfire Mk II

Designed by R.J.Michell to meet a British Air Ministry specification, the Supermarine Spitfire first flown on March 5th, 1936. With its combination of beautiful fighter design, the excellent performance of its Rolls-Royce Merlin powerplant and firepower provided by twin cannons and four machine guns, the Spitfire became an unrivaled symbol of victory. The Spitfire had 40 major variants and was built in greater numbers than any other British aircraft of the time. It flew operationally on every front between 1939 and 1945 and was engaged in every one of the Royal Air Force's major actions.

Corgi's 1:32 scale Mk I and Mk II Spitfires are large scale models loaded with features. Moveable parts characterize this mold—the control surfaces, speed brakes, radiator vent and landing gear are all moveable with metal hinges. The canopy slides open, the side entry hatch folds down and the radio compartment hatch also opens. Fine details are hidden beneath these movable surfaces—the cockpit interior, pilot figure and radio equipment are beautifully rendered, as are the machine guns located beneath removable covers on each wing. The three-piece engine cowling is also removable, and beneath it is a finely detailed V-12 Merlin engine.
