Easy Model Platinum Collection 37219
Supermarine Spitfire Mk V Display Model
USAAF 2nd FS, 1943
|Supermarine Spitfire Mk V||5"||6.25"|
The Supermarine Spitfire is regarded by many as the most beautifully designed single-seat fighter to appear during WWII. The Spitfire went through numerous major and minor changes throughout its long production life. Early improvements resulted in the Mk.V series of Spitfires, which became the most widely produced versions of all Mk’s. The main improvements were the furnishing of the three wing armament configurations, and the use of the more powerful Merlin-type 45 engine. The most numerous Mk.V was the “B” winged version, which had a mixed armament of two 7.7mm machine guns and one 20mm cannon in each wing.
The Easy Model "Platinum Collection" series presents highy-affordable, ready-made plastic models of military aircraft in 1:72 scale. While these models may not have the same "heft" as their diecast siblings, they do offer remarkable value for money. Most importantly, they look perfectly at home alongside diecast modes, allowing collectors to "flesh out" their collection with types and paint-schemes not yet available in diecast.
