Airfix A05119 Supermarine Spitfire PR.XIX 1/48

Airfix Model Kit




The PR.XIX was the final Photo Reconnaissance version of the Spitfire to see
active RAF service. Produced by mating features of the Mk. XI Spitfire to the
powerful Griffon engine of the XIV, the PR.XIX was one of the fastest and
some say best looking of all Spitfire variants. Due to its role as a reconnaissance
machine it featured no armament, instead relying upon its high top speed to
evade any potential enemies. After the war the PR.XIX served in the Far East,
operating over Hainan Island and performing the RAF’s last ever operational
sortie by a Spitfire over Malaya on the 10th of June 1957.
