Aeroplane Heaven – Supermarine Spitfire Mk1A v1.6.0

Description

When designer Reginald J Mitchell died of cancer in 1937, although having seen the prototype take to the air the previous year, little could he have known just how much influence his brilliant design for “an all-metal monoplane, eight-gun fighter” would have on the outcome of the Second World War.

Spitfires fought from the earliest days of the War right through to its close in both the European and Pacific theatres and continued to serve with distinction through more conflicts to come all the way to the 1960s.

But it was in the darkest days of 1940, when Britain was on the back foot following a disastrous campaign in France, the following evacuations from Dunkirk and the consequential “Battle of Britain” that Mitchell’s graceful little fighter really proved its mettle.

Alongside the venerable Hawker Hurricane, its stablemate in many RAF squadrons of the day, pilots flew the Spitfire into battle all throughout each day of the long hot summer of 1940.

Features:

• Beautifully crafted exterior and interior models built from years of research and using factory drawings and plans.
• Fully detailed authentic cockpit with many unique animations and functions.
• “Modern” avionics suite available with a switch-out for those that like a modern approach to their simming!
• Special effects include engine exhaust and radiator heat vapour
• Highly accurate, animated pilot with correct 1938 pattern goggles, sunshade and oxygen mask.
• Functional exterior battery cart, mandatory for starting early Spitfires
• Beautifully crafted, professional “Merlin II” sound set.
• Highly accurate flight dynamics and performance specifications ensure an authentic flight.
• Unique coding irons out that terrible MSFS “tail-dragger” behaviour!
