The Tr.9 Spitfires were used to train pilots for the IAC Seafire fleet and the course included gunnery practice, for although the Spitfire was primarily a trainer, it was equipped with two .303 Browning machine guns, one in each outer wing bay. In time, the IAC retired its Seafire fleet and the Spitfires took on their duties until in 1960 they too were retired. Most of the Tr.9 aircraft passed to the ground technical training school at Baldonnel where they were used as instructional airframes for the training of aircraft engineers for the Air Corps.

My husband flew in this Spitfire at Duxford and I wanted to get him a memento of the day. I contacted BravoDelta and they were so helpful, they even got the stand engraved with the information of his day at Duxford. He was so delighted with the model – the detail is extraordinary – the colours perfect and having it on the stand shows it off to perfection. I have nothing but praise for the quality of the model and the service I received from this company. My husband absolutely beams when he sees the Spitfire model, especially when he is relaying the story of his day as “co-pilot”.

Bought this as an accurate model of the plane i flew in at Duxford IWM . Loved the engraved stand and basic model quality . Was a little surprised that the ” Bremont” decal was only on one side of the model and that the “aerial/Collective ” decal was missing from both sides . Also the 5R element of the side decal was not aligned with the rest . Little details that count ?
