Here are two different models of my favourite fighter. Both represent Spitfires LF Mk. IX with Czech connections. The black one (above) is the famous Black Spitfire, no 57 of Ezer Weizman, former Israeli president. As is widely known Israel received the majority of their Spitfires from Czechoslovakia  1948-1949. The model is a slightly modified Matchbox 1/72 kit.

The silver Spitfire below is the modified Italeri 1/72 kit in the marking of the Czechoslovak AF in 1946-1947. This particular aircraft has been previously presented at this site here.

Best regards to all from Brno, Czech Republic.
