     The Supermarine Spitfire is an icon of British grit and determination. Its fluid lines seem to blend art with aerodynamics. ParkZone has brilliantly captured the power and grace of the Spitfire with this remarkably scale, brushless Mk IX replica. The Mk IX was developed by Supermarine in 1942 to counter the threat posed by the Focke Wulf 190. It also has the distinction of being the first Allied warplane to shoot down an Me-262 jet.
     We met with Matt Andren in studio to discuss this new addition to the ParkZone War bird line-up. Ready to accept retracts out of the box with incredible scale detail and great looks, this model is sure to please. Take a look at the panel lines, molded radiator details, antenna mast and other appointments that make this Spitfire stand alone from others on the market.
