Description Extended Information
 
Dragon DRW50161 USA Exclusive: USAAF Supermarine Spitfire Mk. Vb Fighter - Major Robert Levine, 4th Fighter Squadron, Tunisia, 1943 (1:72 Scale) "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, commenting on the British airmen in the Battle of Britain

The Spitfire is the most famous British aircraft of all time. Although less numerous than the Hawker Hurricane, it is remembered as the sleek, thoroughbred fighting machine that turned the tide during the Battle of Britain. The Spitfire was among the fastest and most maneuverable prop-driven fighters of World War II, serving in virtually every combat theater.

Supermarine designer Reginald Mitchell created this small, graceful, elliptical-wing fighter with eight guns in the wings that were able to fire without being hindered by the propeller. The immortal Spitfire thus became not merely one of the best-performing fighters of all time, but also one of the best-looking. Although never employed as a long-range escort, the Spitfire was a champion in an air-to-air duel. Spitfires routinely dived at the speed of sound, faster than any of the German jets.

A carrier-based version, called the Seafire, was a winner in its own right, serving valiantly on convoy routes during World War II. The Seafire 47 was even used in the early stages of the Korean War, before it was replaced by more modern jet aircraft.

This particular 1:72 scale replica of a Spitfire was piloted by Major Robert Levine who flew with the USAAF's 4th Fighter Squadron deployed to Tunisia in 1943. Note: This is a Dragon USA exclusive and only 1,000 pieces were produced. Sold Out!
