History.

In the early months of 1942, with the clear superiority of the Focke Wulf Fw 190 over the Spitfire VB, there was much pressure to get Spitfires into production using the new two-stage supercharged Merlin 61 engine.

The performance of the Spitfire IX was outstandingly better than the Spitfire V especially at heights above 20,000 feet. On the level the Spitfire is considerably faster and climb is exceptionally good. It will climb easily to 38,000 feet and when levelled off there can be made to climb in stages to above 40,000 feet by building up speed on the level and a slight zoom. Its manoeuvrability is as good as a Spitfire V up to 30,000 feet and above is very much better. At 38,000 feet it is capable of a true speed of 368mph and is still able to manoeuvre well for fighting.

Reviews.

"Chocks away old chap! Good model, camouflage pattern matches the real thing, very nice to own North Africa vehicles as my great uncle Ray served with Royal Engineers in North Africa and Italy." ~ Ewan D.

"An excellent redition of the most iconic of all WW2 fighters" ~ Scott M.
