Product description

Founded in 1939 by Nicholas Kove, Airfix is still going strong today, with popular model kits and an exciting range of ideas and designs, such as the Supermarine Spitfire MkIA Gift Set. Airfix was termed due to their initial production of inflatable toys, where the name was naturally coined. Not long after the Second World War however, the manufacturer moved on to using injection moulding machines, producing items such as combs.

Later, they were approached by Harry Ferguson, a tractor company, who requested Airfix to create a miniature of one of their tractors for promotion. Because making the small tractor was beginning to be a problem, the company made a series of parts, in which it was then put together by workers.

The Spitfire is one of Britain's well-kept and highly-regarded aeroplanes following famous airborne skirmishes such as the Battle of Britain, marking its strengths with sheer, high-performance manoeuvrability and as exceptional defenders against enemy bombers.

  • Set includes model kit, poly cement, two paintbrushes and four paints.
  • Scale: 1:72.
  • 12.7x 15.5 cm (approximately 5 x 6.10 inches)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to make up My 8 year old grandson found this model easy to make with a little help from his grandfather. Once painted it looked good although he said it was not as complex as others he has done

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great starter model My son is only 7 and was desperate to have this Spitfire model. It said it was simple to build, the lowest skill rating of 1, but I was a bit dubious as to whether it would be ok for him. It’s fantastic! He did over 90% of it himself. I only intervened a few times - and mainly just to slow him down to allow for the glue to dry! He built it and painted it himself and is so proud of his handiwork! There are a few very small parts but he has fairly small fingers!! Im very happy with this purchase. I suspect Father Christmas may visit again to buy another model in this series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good starter set Bought this for a 10 year old with special needs, easy to understand diagrams and very little written information which worked very well. Wish the model was slightly larger as handling some of the little pieces was tricky. Overall he enjoyed making and painting the plane

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Airfix Spitfire I bought this model for my 10 year old grandson to introduce him model making. It looks simple to build but you end up with a good looking model

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great entry level kit I used to build as a child and just recently discovered the hobby once more. To get back into it I chose this set as it has all you need to complete it.
