Top Flite Spitfire Mk IX Gold Edition Kit
England’s fire-breathing fighter — now an easy kit project with dramatic detail.
Add Britain’s best to your fine fleet of Gold Edition WWII warbirds! When the Spitfire MkIX entered service in July 1942, it quickly turned the tide against Germany and the Focke Wulf. Top Flite’s kit honors the original with stable, forgiving flight and accurate—but easy to achieve—1/7 scale detail.
