Product Description

WOW078 Our first Spitfire is the MK9 variant and one of the most highly
regarded versions of this beautiful looking aircraft from WW2. Spitfires
with pin up nose art are quite hard to come by, but after some searching we
found one flown by American pilot  Lt Colonel Gustav Lundquist. 'Hello
Tolly' was one of the first Spitfires to fly the Atlantic via Iceland in
1944. It was fitted with Mustang underwing fuel tanks for the flight and had
all unnecessary weight removed for this epic journey. Whilst flying the
Atlantic route 'Hello Tolly' made a forced landing in Greenland and it was
here that the famous nose art was added by a mechanic with too much time on
his hands! All in all a very unique looking aircraft model with full
interior and one that surely deserves pride of place in any Spitfire
collectors display cabinet. Limited to 15 in number worldwide and priced at
$550 plus P&P, the model comes free with an RAF sentry (no picture attached)
which although not in stock will be posted out as soon as it does arrive
here at Gunn HQ.
