This kit includes the Spitfire Mk.VII with decals for four RAF versions from 1944. The Supermarine Spitfire Mk VII was developed to provide the British Royal Air Force with an effective high altitude fighter. The previous Mk VI version was not considered suitable to combat the threat from high altitude enemy bombers . The Spitfire Mk VII, especially in the configuration with the powerful and reliable Merlin 71 engine, could reach the service ceiling of 45,100 feet (13,700 m.) and guarantee superb high altitude performance. The Spitfire Mk VII was characterized by a pressurized cabin, the four-bladed propeller, a longer fuselage and the extended and pointed wing tips. It was in production from August 1942 until early 1944 and more than 140 aircraft were produced in that time.
