The Spitfire is a favorite of aviation buffs all over the world, and it’s always been a popular modeling subject. Airfix has found a gap in the roster of available Spitfire kits, producing a photo-recon version. The kit has a wheels-up option, a pilot figure, a separate rudder, and markings for postwar British and Swedish aircraft.
