Notes from our tech department:
This is a Plastic 1/48 WWII Supermarine Spitfire MKI Airplane from Tamiya.

The Supermarine Spitfire I was the British Royal Air Force's premiere fighter
during the first two years of WWII and, with the Hawker Hurricane, formed the
backbone of the defense against the German Luftwaffe during the Battle of
Britain. Tamiya's rendition of the Spitfire I builds up into an impressive,
highly detailed 1/48th scale replica with lots of interior and exterior detail.
High quality water activated decals are included for two specific aircraft.
