Product description

Take to the skies with the Airfix Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb Messerschmitt Bf109E Model Kit. The two aeroplanes can be recreated with this high quality model set.

Between June 1940 and November 1942 the small but strategically important island of Malta became the most heavily bombed place on earth when first Italian and then German bombers attempted to force the island to surrender.

At the height of the battle, cannon armed and tropicalized Spitfire Mk.Vbs were used to intercept the German Junkers Ju88 and Ju87 Stuka dive bombers which were escorted by Messerschmitt Bf109Es. It became a struggle that was in some ways similar to the Battle of Britain. Eventually at the end of 1942, the war in North Africa had been won by the Allies so Malta was no longer of such important to the Axis powers and the bombing stopped allowing the starving civil population to be re-supplied by sea.

This kit will be the perfect addition to any model-maker's collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A class duo Been wanting to look at airfixes new tooling update to these classic kits and Airfix hasn’t disappointed. Both kits show nice recessed panel lines and good cockpit detail.Instructions are clear and easy to follow.Decals are very well printed and painting guides are in full colour. Releasing these kits as a ‘Dogfight Doubles’ edition.That includes ten acrylic paints,two quality brushes and two tubes of cement.Also a attractive designed stand for display is a great deal.Both kits should build into two good looking models.Perfect for beginners as well as seasoned modelers.would recommend.!
