This new offering (A17001) combines the iconic Supermarine Spitfire with the kitmaker's revered large-scale 'Superkit' format, and has hence been one of the most hotly anticipated products in the 2022 range.

Adding to the appeal, Airfix has announced it is the first Superkit to be produced in the UK since 1981. It's set to be one of the most-detailed kits the Margate firm has ever produced, comprises 433 parts and measures 469 x 397 x 151mm. Key features include early/late-style intakes and gun breech blisters, clipped wingtips, two elevator types and four markings options - further details can be found in AMW's stunning preview.
