Made from genuine Spitfire parts, these beautifully crafted cufflinks and pins provide the opportunity to own a real piece of Spitfire.
These unique pin badges, suitable for men and women, have been crafted using metal from X4276 KL-B’s Rolls-Royce Merlin engine which was excavated from the ground in the 1980’s. This engine, bearing serial number 30363, was built in July 1940, fitted to X4276 and delivered to 54 Squadron on 28th August 1940.
This illuminating history traces the design and development of one of World War II’s most remarkable fighter aircraft. The unique sleek design of the Spitfire was truly a thing of aerodynamic beauty.
From unprecedented achievements in winning and setting new world speed records in the great Schneider Trophy Races of the late 1920s and early 1930s to being rolled out for eventual aerial combat in one of the world’s most tumultuous and destructive conflicts, the Supermarine Spitfire served as a game changer. Mark Chambers uses many unpublished illustrations to explore the history of this iconic aircraft.
This unique block model of the plane has retractable landing gear, rotating propeller, flaps and easy to disassemble pilot’s cabin. In the set, apart from the plane, you can find a figure of a pilot and a stand also made of blocks.
