Supermarine Spitfire Mk I

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.

Hobby Master's 1:48 scale Spitfire Mk I is cleverly designed to provide the collector with a reasonably-priced, top quality product with just the right number of features. This beautiful model features a canopy that slides open or is removable, providing a clear view of the pad-printed gauges and correctly-rendered control stick with loop stick grip. The all-metal propeller spins freely and the engine exhaust stack has been separately applied. The near-solid metal wing has hinged metal landing gear with integrated metal gear doors, and the wing root fairing is integrated in the wing's casting, which creates a flawless transition between the fuselage and the near-razor thin trailing edge.
