Supermarine Spitfire Mk. I, Pilot Officer David
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."
