Supermarine Spitfire 55cc 2.16m (86in)
The thrill and the satisfaction that comes from flying an R/C version of Mitchells legendary fighter has to be experienced to be properly realised. So formidable was the Spitfires reputation in combat that expectations of flying one, even in model form, can be tinged with trepidation, even fear. This, however, is a misplaced emotion for the aeroplane that united a nation during its darkest hour is, in fact, a delightfully light, responsive and friendly machine to fly, one that endeared itself to fighter pilots from the moment they climbed aboard and strapped themselves in. Well, the same rings true of Seagulls impressive 86′ span Mk.VB. Wearing the colors of AB910, flown by Squadron Leader Jan Zumbach of Polish 303 squadron, this is a model you’ll respectfully enjoy flying, not least because of the heads it’s sure to turn when you power down the runway, lift gracefully into the air and tuck the wheels neatly into their wells.
Offering flaps, retracts, an authentic matt finish, plug-in wing panels, cannons, radiator mouldings, unhindered fuselage access (via a removable top hatch), antenna, pilot, a sprung tail wheel, and numerous other scale details, this is a great deal of aeroplane for the money, one thats sure to reward your investment over and over as you become familiar with, and grow to love, Seagull’s 20% version of what is arguably the most elegant fighting machine ever created.
