Hobby Master 1:48 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX – PL258, Fenrik (Ensign) Carl Jacob Stousland, No. 331 (Norwegian) Squadron, 1944

1:48 Scale.  Length: 7.5".  Wingspan: 9.2"



Limited production of approximately 350 models worldwide


In 1944 Spitfire Mk.IX PL258 was built in the Castle Bromwich Aircraft Factory and flown by 331 (Norwegian) Squadron’s Fenrik (Ensign) Carl Jacob Stousland. On December 29, 1944 Spitfire PL258 was on a reconnaissance flight over Germany when it collided with Spitfire PT909 piloted by Sergeant Ole Tilset. Stousland made a belly landing near Tubbergen, Netherlands but the aircraft was a write-off. Dutch farmers hid Stousland and after 79 days managed to reach Allied lines but Tilset was captured.

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during 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 in August 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.
