    The Ultimate Spitfire Model

    Brian Wolfe

    Recommended Posts

    Hello Everyone,

    I had to post this remarkable "toy" that is displayed over the Spitfire Emporium in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. The owner owns KW Surplus also in Kitchener and also owns the T54/55 Tank I posted earlier today.

    The model is a full sized Mk IX Spitfire and is made of fibreglass.

    While this is not a model in the usual sense I posted it here because it is a replica and not a real plane.

    Check out this remarkable gentleman and his store on Google under Spitfire Emporium. He sells small scale models, replicas and books; it may be worth your time to check it out.

    I hope you like the photos.

    Cheers :cheers:

    What's the story behind that? Is it a movie prop, or hand-built?

    Makes me wonder whatever happened with the planned 1:1 battleship Yamato we heard about some years back being built in Japan!

    The owner of the store purchsed this from a compant that either does or did produce full scale models. I believe he has also donated a German fighter (type?) to the Canadian Aeronautics Museum.

    Do you have any pictures of the inside of the Emporium? I would love to see what is in there...

    Thank you
