Details

The Supermarine Spitfire was Britain's most successful fighter of the second World War. The airplane's orignal design was created by Reginald J. Mitchell. It's development started in 1925, which resulted in the famous Schneider Trophy contest racers. Eventually, it was developed into a fighter that sustained British hopes during the darkest hours of the Battle of Britain. The prototype Spitfire fighter was first tested on March 5, 1936 and in June of the same year was first placed in production. The Spitfires were in the forefront of the fighting on every front, and in every major action fought by the R.A.F. No combat fighter is more deserving of its legendary reputation the one truly immortal warplane to emerge from World War 2.

Guillow was founded in 1926 by a World War 1 US Navy aviator and is the world's largest manufacturer of balsa wood model airplane kits. They have an enviable reputation for producing quality kits with excellent building instructions and plans.

The 500 series (16½" wing span) of WW2 models is their most popular range and is suitable for ages 10 years and upwards. These easy building balsa airplane kits contain laser cut balsa parts, plastic cowls and canopies, decals, plastic prop, wheels, tissue and a 24-page model building booklet. Models are approximately 1:30 scale.

Each kit is supplied with a rubber band motor for powered flight but can also be adapted for gas powered control line flying with a .020 engine (not included).

These model construction kits have scale realism for the super detail fan and light weight for those who build and fly. Each model is a small but faithful replica of a well known airplane.

A great kit representing excellent value for money and hours of fun!

Requires adhesives and basic modelling tools to complete.
