Airfix civvie Spitfire

Recommended Posts

It does look quite nice in that get-up, but if it's the civvie Spit, why does it look like it still has cannon?

Because it was equipped with cannon barrels under the ownership of Spencer Flack, who also had lights fitted to the muzzles (you can see them in the picture). Presumably the pilot was required to say 'dakka dakka dakka' whilst squeezing the button to operate the lights. I remember this aircraft being displayed (don't ask where, I have no idea) with the guns 'firing', it was a fabulous beastie.
