This model of the Spitfire at 1/48 scale is 8 inches long and 9 inches in wingspan one can see many details that might not be as clear at smaller scales (as 1/72). From the photos one can see that the landing gear is more detailed, tire treads are distinguishable as well as a landing light and even suspension elements.
The cockpit is very detailed and the canopy can slide back. One needs to be very CAREFUL sliding the canopy back as it could be broken easily.
A pilot figure is included and at 1/48 scale one can see that the details are painted in different colors.
A plastic display stand is included.
This is really a "no-play" model or a "display-only" model. It is mostly metal and very heavy. It also has a number of antennas which look great but are very fragile. If you have small kids that like to play with your models, save yourself some frustration (and money) and wait till later to get a model like this one. The box is labeled as not suitable for children under 14.
The box measures 9.75 inches by 9.75 inches by 4 inches.
