The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries before, during and after World War II. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations, and was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft. It was also the only British fighter to be in continuous production throughout the war. The Spitfire continues to be popular among enthusiasts; about 54 remain airworthy, while many more are static exhibits in aviation museums throughout the world.

Despite the tiny scale, the model captures the elegant eliptical wing. The cast is hard metal, allowing wing sections to be thin and crisp without bending. Also details like control surfaces and the air-scoop are nicely renderred.
