Pre-war Spitfires (48003)

1:48 Iliad Design of Canada




Given the extensive wartime use of the Spitfire it is often overlooked that the aircraft entered RAF service in August 1938 with N.19 Squadron at RAF Duxford. This newly re-printed sheet from Iliad decals allows us to build six prewar spitfires. Full markings and national markings are provided for all six machines.


  • Spitfire Mk.I K9795 19 Sqn RAF Duxford Oct 1938. White 19 markings in tail probably signifies the Sqn Commanders aircraft.
  • Spitfire Mk.I K9843 54 Sqn RAF Hornchurch Early Summer 1939. 
  • Spitfire Mk.I L1088 609 Sqn, Immediately Pre-war.
  • Spitfire Mk.I ?????19 Sqn RAF Duxford May 1939 (Serial number painted out).
  • Spitfire Mk.I K9927 14 Sqn RAF Hornchurch Many 1938 (Serial number painted out).
  • Spitfire Mk.I ????? 41 Sqn RAF Catterick 1939. Flown by Sgt EA Shipman (Serial not known).




Very highly recommended for a pre-war Spitfire.
