Airfix Model World presents an exclusive first look at Airfix's brand-new 1/24 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc superkit, featuring parts shots and scheme details.
All-New Superkit First Look!
It's time to dig out all those superlatives, as Airfix's jaw-droppingly detailed 1/24 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc ‘superkit’ is almost upon us. Even for those who’ve known these large kits through the Typhoon and Hellcat, this all-new offering (A17001) is set to impress, as it’s bursting with detail, from the beautifully detailed Rolls-Royce Merlin engine to the equally well-appointed cockpit and fuselage interior. There are 14 styrene runners to savour, and Airfix has thoughtfully arranged parts such that most effectively have a ‘theme’ – there’s no randomly hunting through frames for parts. Runners A, B and C supply the main fuselage plus wing outer ‘skins’ and these feature fine engraved panel and rivet retail, with a full-length single-piece wing spar included on the last of these.
