Michael Booth is a commercial model maker and the owner of the Flying Legends brand.  The new flagship product from this label is a 1/4 scale flying kit of a Supermarine Spitfire Mk. IX.

The kit is all-moulded. The level of detail provided is commendable and includes all rivets and Dzus fasteners.

According to Mike, the completed model shares the fine flying qualities of a full-size Spitfire, down to the stall characteristics. The kit has been well proven and refined over four prototypes.

Flying Legends may also produce a static display version for museums and memorials finished to order in any livery.

Amazing looking plane way to go. We have 3 RC Spitfires at our club in Canada. in the 50 /60 size. Looks nice when we get them in the air and I have to put the ME 109 up at the same time

I’m new to the scene, love this plane, how difficult would it be to fly? Would you need much training before you put one of these up? Charlie.

Charlie,

This would be very difficult to fly until you have a lot of R/C flight time under your belt.

is it me, because in some shots the nose just doesn’t look right, as if it’s truncated;

the Merlins, i seem to recall, required a rather lengthy cowl in all its platforms–Lancaster, Mosquito, P-38, 39, 40, 51, et al (forgive me, but i tend to lump Allison’s in with the RR, the former being considered an inferior derivative of the latter);

The earlier Spitfires with Merlin (1650ci) installations were much shorter than the later Spitfires with the Griffon (2240ci) installed. Many pilots felt the Griffon powered Spitfires lost their sweet handling.
The Allison is not a inferior derivative of the RR. it is a older engine designed originally for rigid airships that needed reversible power. Most of the ‘problems’ centered around the aircraft installations. Some after war configurations developed nearly twice war time power levels.

Hello All,

The website (www.flying-legends.co.uk) listed above to obtain further information is not linked to an available server…? Are these kits available from any other source…?

Cheers,

Jim M.
