Airfix A06103 Supermarine Seafire FR.46/FR.47 1/48

Airfix Model Kit




Considered by many to be the ultimate Spitfire/Seafire variant, the FR.46/47
differed dramatically from R. j Mitchells’ original design, featuring a chin
mounted radiator, contra-rotating propellers, folding wings and short
barrelled cannons. It was the Seafire FR.47 that carried out the last combat
raids of the Spitfire family’s long and illustrious career, performing ground
attack missions against North Korean targets during the Korean War. Once
again it proved itself to be an effective and popular aircraft, but its time had
come and the Seafire was to be replaced shortly afterwards, firstly by more
powerful piston aircraft and then by jets.
