Legendary 3D Model Puzzle
Very few machines have the lasting emotional appeal of the Spitfire. RJ Mitchell's masterpiece, this legendary fighter had its origin as a seaplane - the outright winner of the Schneider Trophy. The only aeroplane constructed throughout the whole of WW2, the Spitfire was continually upgraded and improved to keep it one step ahead of all other fighters. Great planes lead to brilliant pilots, one of the most successful of these being the ace Johnie Johnson, who flew Spitfires throughout the war. The Mark IX - which this model depicts - was his favourite and has been replicated with the markings he earned as Wing Commander. With the Build-It 3D puzzle you can create your very own replica of this fabulous aircraft. Using push-fit pieces, there's no mess, no special tools are needed and it's ready to go straight from the box. Finished model approx. 53cm x 44cm x 18cm. Allow around four hours build time.
