1/1 Scale Spitfire Model
A 1/1 scale replica of a Supermarine Spitfire MKIX is coming up for auction at Artcurial at the beginning of March- the replica would have been one of a run produced and then used at RAF bases and museums around the country to preserve a real one from being left to rot.
Going from its markings, this Spitfire is based on the one used by Johnnie Houlton of 485 sqn, responsible for shooting down the first enemy aircraft over Normandy beach during the D-Day landings.
Bidding for the incredible lawn ornament starts at €25,000 from Artcurial.
