  Home / Model Kits / Free Flight Rubber Powered Airplane Kits / FF-55 Supermarine Spitfire Mk 1A
 
Kit FF-55 Supermarine Spitfire Mk 1A is a 1/9 scale, flying model that uses the Box and Former method of construction. This jumbo model is very popular for conversion to electric or gas powered flight. Pre-1942 design is eligible for Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests.

The Spitfire was conceived as an interceptor with high speed, heavy armament, high rate of climb and the agility to make repeated attacks as well as to fight off escorting aircraft. Its characteristic elliptical wing shape, thinner than any other fighter of the day, coupled with an innovative aerodynamic ducted radiator produced extra power worth 70 hp at 300 mph.
 
This free flight rubber powered kit contains a full-size rolled plan, building and flying instructions, hand sorted printed balsa and balsa stripwood, vacuum-molded spinner, clear plastic for the windshield, wheels, landing gear wire, E-B 12" propeller, EBM thrust bearing, and Easy Built Lite tissue in light sky blue and olive green. You will need a building board, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue.

"Here are photos of my 50 inch Spitfire, it has 4 channel r/c. I beefed up the structure a bit and first flights are very nice. Thanks for supplying these models! Modern electric power has made them very nice r/c options." - Ken Nash

"I decide to go whole hog and make it electric and controllable. I have beefed it up to be fully functional with all controls and retracts. I am having fun with it. I have a size .25 e-flite electric motor for it. I just have to install the engine and cover the outside. I hope it works as well as it looks. I was able to wash out the wing tips when I put it together so I don't think stall will be too bad. " - Garth Minish
