Scale Modelling

Beginning with solid wooden models of the 1940s and the Airfix second-ever plastic kit from 1953, the Spitfire has always been at the very top of aviation modellers’ list of interests, a position which it maintained ever since. Today, modelling is a more advanced discipline than ever before. New and improved Spitfire kits, decals and accessories appear virtually every month.
