We were asked to find an inexpensive but classy option for those interested in a desktop Spitfire model and whose pockets can't manage our higher price gifts. It didn't take much finding - only recently released by Authentic Models, this is a super little model.

Small enough for even modestly sized desks, shelves or tables, it's big on style and has wonderfully smooth lines. At the front, the prop and nose-cone spin.

Trench art encompasses any decorative item made by soldiers, prisoners of war or civilians where the manufacture is directly linked to armed conflict or its consequences. Although the practice flourished during World War I, the term is also used to describe souvenirs manufactured by service personnel during World War II.

AM's aluminium desk fighter is an exact copy of WWII trench art, the original most likely crafted by a mechanic stationed in an isolated airfield somewhere in the British Isles. It's thought to be a representation of the pre-production design from 1936 when the plane was first seen in public.

Team it up with our desktop Mustang and Meteor for a superb WWII display!

Further Information

This model is 20cm in length and has a wingspan of 21cm. When stood, it is 13cm high. It is made from moulded aluminium. . Although it has few movable parts and will be much admired by enthusiasts of all ages, this model is not a toy.  

Individual models may have small areas where you may notice minor pitting. These small surface imperfections in the finish are part of their ‘trench art’ authenticity and are quite normal. It may also show fine parallel lines from the tooling process. These are also part of the finish. We take care in our quality checks to make sure the finish is smoothe and has no markings which would detract from your pleasure in owning and displaying this model.
