Late for the Fight

Spitfire from below.

The Spitfire depicted here is a MKXXII late version, post war, hence 'Late for the Fight'. This sculpture was originally designed and built as a sample piece for a syndicate, interested in commissioning a piece for display at the National Arboretum near Tamworth.  It is my intent to build a larger example, probably of an earlier version to commemorate the bravery of all the people involved with these wonderful aircraft. The piece displayed here measures 2.8m from wing tip to tip and weighs approximately 145kg.  Please click on the photo's below for a larger image.
