It is no secret this impressive new tool has taken the spotlight this year and when you see the kit in detail, it is very easy to see why. It is also the first Airfix Super Kit to be made in the UK since 1981, making this announcement especially unique.

 

 

Arguably the most impressive of all Spitfire kit representations ever released, this 1:24 scale new tool  includes:

  • Early and late intakes and breech blisters

  • Clipped wings

  • Two elevator types

  • Intricately detailed cockpit

 

 

A legacy which is as strong today as it was during the wartime years; an aviation classic and the last major Merlin engine-powered variant of the Spitfire, the Mk.IXc is possibly one of the most important in the entire Spitfire production, going on to see service past D-Day and into the post-war era.

 

 

With each a fascinating story behind them, this new tool release includes five schemes, giving you the option to choose between Johnnie Johnson’s mount or something completely different, such as the French Air Force Reconnaissance Spitfire.

 

 

 These schemes are:

  • Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc, Aircraft flown by Squadron Leader "Johnny" Plagis, No.126 (Persian Gulf) Squadron, Royal Air Force Harrowbeer, Devon, England, July 1944. (A)

  • Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc, Aircraft flown by Flight Lieutenant Ian Keltie, No. 402 Squadron "City of Winnipeg", Royal Air Force Kenley, Surrey, England, March 1943. (B)

  • Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc. Aircraft flown by Wing Commander James Edgar "Johnnie" Johnson, No.402 Squadron "City of Winnipeg", Royal Air Force Kenley, Surrey, England, Summer 1943. (C)

  • Supermarine Spitfire MkIXc Aircraft flown by Captain Garth Jared, Commanding Officer, 309th Fighter Squadron, 31st Fighter Group, United States Army Air Force, Italy, December 1943. (D)

  • Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc, GR 2/33 "Savoie", Armee de L'Air, Luxeuil-Les-Bains, France, early 1945. (E)

 

 

The new 1:24 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc comprises some of the finest detail in Airfix history and we are extremely proud to bring this newly tooled kit to market.

With a wingspan of 469mm, measuring 397mm in length, 150.8mm high, this stunning kit includes a total of 433 parts and is ranked at a skill level 4, ideal for modellers looking for a new challenge and those looking to advance their modelmaking skills.
