The legendary Spitfire fighter plane was introduced in 1936. The short-range, high-performance, single-seat aircraft gained notoriety in defense against Luftwaffe attacks during the Battle of Britain in 1940. As a mainstay of the royal Air Force Fighter Command its speed and maneuverability were essential to carrying out its missions across the European and South-East Asian WWII theaters. The Spitfire was beloved by pilots, and in its many variants it served as trainer, interceptor, fighter-bomber and carrier-based fighter during the 1939-45 conflict. Its iconic status among enthusiasts has held strong in the ensuing years since its retirement from active service in the 1950s. Handmade by expert craftsmen using a lightweight wood frame, covered with molded aluminum sheet sections. Highly detailed with functioning ailerons and tail rudder, fully detailed cockpit, sliding cockpit cover, and diecast aluminum propeller. Measures 24” x 29.75” x 6.75”.
