Product description

Take to the skies with the Airfix Supermarine Spitfire FR Mk.XIV Model Kit!

Continuing the wartime development of the famous Supermarine Spitfire, the Mk.XIV saw the classic shape of Mitchell’s celebrated fighter paired with the awesome power of the new Rolls Royce Griffon engine. The resultant aircraft was superb and one of the RAF’s most capable fighters of WWII, proving particularly successful when employed against the V-1 flying bomb attacks which Germany launched against southern Britain, from the summer of 1944.

As the only British fighter type to remain in production throughout WWII, the Spitfire was constantly developed to ensure it remained at the forefront of fighter performance, with the Griffon powered aircraft being around 80 mph faster than the original Mk.I machines.

This will be perfect for any model-maker's collection, especially those with a keen interest in World War II era tanks, vehicles and aircrafts.

4 Stars4.0 / 5
Airfix Supermarine Spitfire FR Mk.XIV Model Kit 1:48 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nicer kit than expected, some fit issues The kit can be put together by a child no problem,and if the modeller wants to quickly put together the kit without worrying about perfection then its a good buy. But more experienced model builders with an eye for the very subtle details will find some fit issues. The most challenging one is the panel immediately in front of the windscreen, and the oil and waters coolers under the wings. The wing roots have gaps too. But these are not insurmountable problems for a skilled model builder willing to put in the time to fettle each part until they fit. Its the only accurate Spitfire MK14 in 1/48, all be it a bubble canopy version. Converting it to the high back version is possible with scratch building. If you just want any Spitfire or a high back more classic looking canopy version, get a Tamiya or Eduard kit, they are much nicer engineered kits.
