is a British-made single-seat, single engine fighter aircraft designed in the 1930s. It was used mostly during and shortly after WWII. It was one of the fastest and most maneuverable fighters of the war. It was conceived as a short-range interceptor by R.J. Mitchell, chief designer in Supermarine Aviation Works. Spitfire was a main figure in Battle of Britain, but its credits go far beyond that as well. During the years, Spitfire was upgraded, re-engined and remained a top-fighter in its class until the end of WWII. Numerous Spitfires remain airworthy to this day and are flown in private hands. Spitfire is one of the most sleek and beautiful World War II fighters ever made.
is a paint scheme with variations of colors, sometimes ranging from dark earth tones to light gray nuances. There were two patterns of the camo – A and B. One was the mirror image of the other. At some stage during the war, only one of those two remained. This mask set represents Type A. The colors were changed due to shortages of paints during wartime. Despite that, the planes kept their scheme, even though some of them look very different from one another. On the bottom areas, Spitfire were painted in light gray and sometimes in black /or black & white/ colors. On top however, Spits featured the camo scheme presented in this DN Models’ mask set. This set is designed using Eduard Spitfire tooling, but it is suitable for most 72nd scale Spitfire kits on the market, ranging from early, through mid- ’till the last variants of the Supermarine fighter.
