Durafly 1100mm Supermarine
The Supermarine Spitfire is the defining aircraft of WW2, and following on from the Mk1a, the Mk5 represents the pinnacle of the early Spitfire’s development. After the defensive campaign of the Battle of Britain, the RAF moved steadily into an offensive roll and the Mk5 was to spear head this change in the early years of the war. Better armed, faster and more manoeuvrable, the Mk5 gave the RAF and other allied forces (such as the USAAF) a decisive advantage over the Luftwaffe’s Bf.109 and was on equal terms with its later Bf.109F, battling both of these axis aircraft in the ETO (European Theater Offensive) and air war over the deserts of North Africa right during the first half of the war.
Durafly’s Mk5 brings to market (for the first time ever) a tribute not only to the pilots of the RAF, but to those gallant American airmen of the USAAF, thanks to the multiple and historically accurate national markings supplied in the box. Beyond the unique markings, the attention to detail in this PnF model is matched only but its superb performance and grace in the air. The Mk5 is designed for 3 and 4S set-ups and boasts a range of features typical of the Durafly standards including faithfully reproduced split flaps, scale outline, fine surface detail and finish along with an LED system.
Very simply, you will not find a better rendition of a Spitfire at this scale from anyone other than Durafly.
