The Spitfire is the British fighter from World War II. Sure, there were Hurricanes, Tempests, Typhoons, Mustangs, Mosquitoes, and Meteors, but there were more Spitfires than any of them. More to the point, there have been injection molded kits in 1/144 of the Spirfire I and 5, but this is the first Mark IX. Kami de Korokoro has a resin Mark IX.
You get two of every part, but there are two types of wing – one full-span, one with clipped wing. There are six marking options, three for clipped, three for full wings. These are shown on the back of the box and with 4-view drawings in the instructions.
Like most 1/144 fighter kits, this one is pretty simple. Two fuselage halves, a one-piece wing, horizontal stabilizers left and right, and the canopy, and it was ready to paint. Notice that there’s no cockpit interior. That’s an add-on that I didn’t have. It’s Eduard stock number 144006, available for $7.99.
