THE ROYAL AUSTRALIAN AIR FORCE
Supermarine Spitfire Mk Viii,
No.457 Sqn, Morotai Island , April 1945,
“Grey Nurse”, Wing Commander “Bobby” Gibbes, No.80 Wing.
fighter squadron of World War II.
Equipped with Supermarine Spitfire fighters,
it was formed in England during June 1941
under Article XV of the Empire Air Training Scheme.
The squadron was transferred to Australia in June 1942
and saw combat in the South West Pacific Area
before being disbanded in November 1945.
These new WW2 planes have been designed
with interchangeable “plug-in” undercarriages.
This will enable those collectors who wish to display
their Second World War models on display stands,
to display them with the undercarriage correctly closed.
The models will also have opening and closing canopies.
The side door will open only on specific models, marked with the code “D”.
Since the hinge is oversize,
if the model is displayed with the door closed this may not be acceptable.
**Please note that RAAF-01 includes a seated pilot figure in the cockpit,
but the side door does not open. The pilot figure cannot be removed.
The pilots canopy can be opened.
The Propeller plugs into position, and can turn.
The front and rear undercarriages are removable and can be switched**
**Please note the undercarriage can be switched
and the model placed on any of the jjDesigns Stands**
