Without doubt the names Airfix and Spitfire are inextricably linked and for 65 years, we have had a Spitfire kit in our range, with this aircraft always maintaining its position as one of the most popular subjects in any Airfix catalogue. Viewed by the British public as the aircraft which won the Battle of Britain, there is no doubt that the dogfights which raged in the skies above southern England during the summer of 1940 secured the legacy of an aircraft which must be considered one of the most famous in the history of flight, even though they were outnumbered in squadron strength by the Hawker Hurricane. Despite this, the Luftwaffe learned to respect the fighting qualities of this graceful looking aeroplane, to a point were every aircraft they lost was usually (and in most cases incorrectly) attributed to the much vaunted Spitfire.
