Spitfire Mk 16e

We’re planning a 1/5 scale model of this beautiful WWII fighter. Unusual in having the cut down rear fuselage, the Mark XVIe was, at its heart, a Mark VIII, but with the added looks of that clipped wing.

We know that it isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but there are lots of plans out there for the more classic Mark V and Mark IX. We wanted something a little different.

Spanning 80 inches, this model will be powered by a 1.6 c.i. nitro engine, or the equivalent gas or electric. It would even support a sound system if you want that authentic Merlin sound…

Laser-cut short kits are not yet available. Just email us for details.
