The Supermarine Spitfire was one of the most built aircraft in the world. Its high speed, its reliability and, above all, its enormous maneuverability made it the most popular fighter aircraft of all time. In the "Battle of Britain", the air battle over Britain, their use ensured the glorious victory of the British Air Force. No wonder another legend has set a musical monument to this legend of the sky: The heavy metal band Iron Maiden with their super hit "Aces High" on their 1984 album "Powerslave".

Today there are still around 40 of the legendary Spitfires in airworthy condition worldwide. Plus one that still hovers as a full-size model over the heads of the six heavy metal musicians at Iron Maiden concerts.
The 1:32 scale Spitfire Mk.II "Aces High" Iron Maiden brings fun and the best memories right from the start. Scale details in the cockpit and on the radiator, the movable propeller and the true-to-original decals for the Aces High version leave nothing to be desired. Piece by piece, the legend is brought to life as you assemble it. A total of 115 individual parts gradually add up to a length of 28.6 cm and an impressive wingspan of 35.1 cm.
Where would Iron Maiden be without their famous mascot, Eddie the Head? So that the model of the Spitfire Mk.II is even more reminiscent of the hard rockers, the model also includes a seated Eddie pilot figure for the cockpit and a standing Eddie figure!
