Aviation Archive. Battle of Britain twin pack. This BoB set was produced for the British market in 2000. The Spitfire was unusual for its time in the poor quality of the prop, which was warped. I had to keep adjusting the prop so that the warping wouldn't show in the photos.

With no real competition in the diecast airplane market in the year this twin pack was manufactured, a run of 5800 models was a reasonable number. However, try making just 2000 copies of any run today and see what happens...did someone say "scrap metal."
