Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VC - Wing Commander Clive Caldwell, No. 1 Fighter Wing, RAAF, Livingstone, Australia, March, 1943

1:72 Scale.  Length: 5".  Wingspan: 6.2"



Limited Edition


On December 5, 1941, Clive R. Caldwell shot down five Ju 87s in a single engagement. He was promoted to Squadron Leader in January 1942 and took command of 112 Squadron RAF, flying Kittyhawks. Caldwell's prowess as the Wing Commander earned him the nickname "Killer", a moniker he disliked, although it was earned for service he was justifiably proud of.

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many Allied countries air forces in World War II and into the 1950s as a front line fighter and in secondary roles. The Spitfire was first flown on March 5, 1936 and entered service with the RAF on August 4 1938. It served in several roles, including interceptor, photo-reconnaissance, fighter bomber, carrier-based fighter, and trainer. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and was the only British fighter in continuous production throughout the war. When production ended in February 1948, a total of 20,351 Spitfires of all variants had been built.
