Detailed kit from Italeri of the Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc. Includes markings for 5 different aircraft.

The Spitfire is certainly the most famous and best known fighter aircraft of World War II. The Mk. IX version was first produced in large numbers at the end of 1942. Over the course of its long operational use, this fighter aircraft was used to "transport" beer to lift the spirits of English troops right after the landing in Normandy in the summer of 1944. This was actually a very limited operation, though it was to have a great impact in terms of propaganda on the spirits of the soldiers.
