The Supermarine Spitfire needs little introduction, one of the best-known aircraft deployed by the Royal Air Force in the Battle of Britain, as British and German forces struggled for control of the skies over the English Channel. The Mk. I had a streamlined form with elliptical wings designed for speed, and was powered by a Merlin engine. This legendary bird has received a complete makeover from Tamiya’s designers with new tooling for an updated and more accurate appearance in the 1/48 Aircraft Series! ??Requires paint and assembly.
