Supermarine Seafire FR Mk.47 Korean War Fighter-Bomber 'Hi-tech' version. Development of the Seafire lagged a bit behind their Supermarine Spitfire counterparts. After the end of the war this trend continued, but this did not apply for the last versions of the Seafires. Fuselage of Seafire Mk.47, the very last version of this aeroplane was the same as for Supermarine Spitfire Mk.24, but the Seafire Mk.47 was driven by a Rolls Royce Griffon 88 engine with counter-rotating three-bladed propellers. The lower-fuselage air-intake was moved forward to begin right behind the spinner. The wing of this Seafire was also foldable. Supermarine Spitfire Mk.47s began their service in 1948 and during the next year took part in fighting the Malayan communists, flying from the deck of H.M.S. Triumph. In 1950 the Mk.47 Seafires fought in the Korea war, operating from the same carrier. They remained in service until 1954. Box with model of this beautiful aircraft contains four sprues of higly detailed plastic parts and one sprue with clear canopy parts, all identical to the SH72099 kit. In addition you can find another sprue with injected parts of the armament, rockets and bombs. The kit also contains decals with stencils and coloured etched parts that enhance the cockpit and also exterior of the model. The decals are for three different machines, two of them from the Korea war and the last one from the British Islessca
