Revell Germany Aircraft 1/72 Spitfire Mk IIa Fighter Kit
Britain expected to fight the Second World War on and in the skies over France, just like it had fought the first one. This was not to be. In July 1940, Germany launched the Battle of Britain—striving to dismantle the British Air Force and force England out of the war. The Spitfire Mk.IIa, along with a host of other aircraft, ensured this would not happen. Though both sides suffered terrible losses, it was the British who emerged victorious.
