Supermarine Spitfire Mk.II Postage Stamp 1:93 Model

The Supermarine Spitfire is a single-seat fighter aircraft used by the RAF and many allied countries during World War II. Designed by R.J. Mitchell and produced by Supermarine, the Spitfire was designed with remarkably thin elliptical wings with the thinnest possible cross-section, which enabled it to travel at speeds that exceeded those of other aircraft fighters of its time. Equipped with a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, and 8 .303" Browning machine guns, the Spitfire was a fast and maneuverable fighter and was the only fighter aircraft to be in continual production and development before, during and after the war.

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 Hawker Hurricane fighters to attack the 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. P7966 was one of the first to carry CO Bader's initials on the fuselage instead of the standard squadron code markings.

This diecast metal model from Postage Stamp features authentic paint scheme with pad printed markings. Landing gear are fixed retracted, display stand included.
