You can bet that there were countless models of the Spitfire made during that time. It was known around the world, almost exclusively, as 'the' Royal Air Force fighter plane because of its many successful defensive moves against the Luftwaffe.
Considered a masterpiece of aerodynamic engineering, it was introduced in 1936, had a 1,470 horsepower engine, a 36' wingspan, reached speeds of 378 MPH and would seat one brave pilot.
This small desk model is made of recycled aircraft aluminum with propellers that spin. An engraving of the plane, along with plane specifics, is located at the base of the stand.
It measures 7 1/2" x 8 1/4" x 5 3/8" tall. Weighs 13.8 oz.
