Supermarine Spitfire Mk. IX
scale Spitfire IX is available online from
Here is Hasegawa's Spitfire Mk IX used to depict Lt Col Charles M.
McCorkle's Spitfire Mk VIII as it appeared in January, 1944. At that
time "Sandy" McCorckle flew "CM-M" while in command of the 31st FG.
McCorkle finished the war with 11 kills, five in Spitfires, two of
which were obtained while flying a Mk VIII.
Decals are Carpena and I have adorned the kit with an Ultracast seat
(McCorkle was born in Newton, North Carolina which isn't too far
from my current hometown of Charlotte.)
