During the Battle of Britain, which was the first major campaign fought entirely by air forces, the Spitfire was part of an important battle tactic, where the Spitfire squadrons were sent up to engage the German fighter escorts, leaving the Hurricane to attack German bombers.
Spitfire Mk IIa, serial P7966 D-B "Manxman" was the personal aircraft of Wing Commander Douglas Bader, when he started leading the Tangmere Wing in March of 1941. The P7966 was one of the first to carry CO Bader's initials on the fuselage instead of the standard code markings. The Spitfire Mk IIa is a 1/93 scale with a length of 3.75" and a wingspan of 4.75"
