Prepare your Spitfire for its next mission as you recreate three scenes from the Battle of Britain: rearming your fighter, refuelling and aircraft maintenance.

The Spitfire couldn't fly without the hard work of its groundcrew. Each man had a specific task to perform, from servicing the engine to repairing battle damage. Now, see the teamwork needed to send a Spitfire into battle as you arrange your diorama elements to represent a corner of ‘an English airfield’. Get your aircraft ready to scramble to meet the next enemy raid!
