It's a pity that Reginald Mitchell's most beautiful design was intended to be a fighter, which means it was built for war and we are unlikely to see it as an official Lego set. I propose an alternative: a Spitfire converted for racing!
The model is 1/40 scale, the first complete Lego model I've built in 2-3 years, and it is based on G-AISU, a 1949 racer converted from a Spit Mk. V. Features:
- Fully retractable landing gear
- Swap out the default engine block for the separate "panels off" engine, which shows off the detailed Merlin 45 engine! (See attached pictures)
- Fits one whole minifig, with space in the cockpit for controls
- If required, model can also be mounted on a Lego stand
