A masterpiece of the skies, the Supermarine Seafire returns to Airfix's range after a ten-year absence.

The XVII was the first of the Seafire variants to feature a cut-down rear fuselage and distinctive teardrop-style canopy. The aircraft could carry a heavier weapons load thanks to reinforced construction, with both fuel tanks and rockets under the wings. This plane flew on the frontline until the early 1950s when it downgraded to training duties.

The Navy’s variant of the legendary Spitfire operated from aircraft carriers and land bases around the globe. Folding wings, strengthened undercarriage and tailhook allowed carrier use. Unsurprisingly, it was very effective when providing Combat Air Patrol (CAP) over invasion forces from Operation Torch through Sicily, Italy, D Day, Southern France etc and also as a Kamikaze interceptor with the British Pacific Fleet.

A combination of elegance and performance. The Seafire was extremely agile and that, combined with a top speed of approximately 378 miles per hour (608km/h) and powerful armament, made it a formidable and potent opponent.

What's inside: Plastic model kit, instruction sheet, paint layout sheet and decals.
