Trumpeter Spitfire Mk VI Aircraft 1:24 Scale Plastic Model Kit TM02413 (TM02413)
Length: 384.8m Wingspan: 511.2m
Based on the Mk V airframe, the HF Mk VI was the first Spitfire specifically intended for high altitude combat, rather than reconnaissance duties. Fitted with a pressurised cockpit and powered by a Merlin 47 of 1415 hp, it had increased span 'c' wings of 40 ft. 2 in. The Mk VI's performance fell short of expectations and only 97 were completed. Relegated to second-line and training duties, the majority of Mk VIs had their pointed wing tips replaced by standard tips and armament removed.
