Detailed kit from Airfix of the Seafire FR.46/FR.47

Markings are included for the following aircraft:

  • Supermarine Seafire FR.47 No.800 Naval Air Squadron, Fleet Air Arm, HMS Triumph, Korean War July 1950.
  • Supermarine Seafire FR.46. Station Flight, Fleet Air Arm, Royal Naval Air Station Lossiemouth, 1948.

The Seafire FR.47 was the last variant of the classic R J Mitchell / J Smith fighter, with very little remaining of the original Supermarine Type 300. The elliptical wing had been considerably modified and the Griffon engine with a six-bladed contra-rotating propeller had replaced the Merlin. The contrast from the Spitfire Mk I was vast, the Seafire FR 47 had twice as much power, a speed increase from 355mph to 451mph and a threefold increase in firepower.
