Spitfire Mk IX Wing Co. 'Jack' Charles, RAF Biggin Hill - 1000th kill
Aviation Archive - 90 Years of the Royal Air Force. This is the first Spitfire produced by Corgi after the Hornby takeover. As it turns out, the model is a pretty standard Corgi Mk IX, and almost identical to the Johnny Johnson Legends Mk IX.

However, the box has changed a bit, with removal of the troublesome (to me, at least) sleeve, and the addition of a larger photo of the model on the side panel of the box, which makes it nice for finding a particular model on the shelf (you can look for the picture instead of having to read the labels).

One point about the model: there are still plenty of paint blows around the roundels; curiously, the blows are shown on the cover photo in pretty much the same places they show up on the model! How very odd!!
