James May's 1:1 Scale Airfix Spitfire

 By Martin Waligorski


Looking remarkably similar to the real thing, here is the largest plastic airplane model kit ever, the giant 1:1 Airfix Spitfire produced for James May's 2009 BBC show Toy Stories. The model, constructed in three days with the help of local schoolchildren, has been retained at outdoor display at Cosford Air Museum

Photographed in November 2009, it was still in good condition, sans its undercarriage which apparently turned out as fragile as per original Airfix kit!
