The Spitfire of Supermarine was one of the most built aircraft in the world. Its high speed, reliability and above all its enormous manoeuvrability made it the most popular fighter aircraft of all time. During the "Battle of Britain", the air battle for England, their deployment ensured the glorious victory of the British Air Force.

The model kit Spitfire Mk.II "Aces High" Iron Maiden therefore belongs to the category Top Gifts for Dad!
