Product Information
Hobbyboss 1:32 - Spitfire MK.Vb/ Trop


The Spitfire Mk VB/trop could be identified by the large Vokes air filter fitted under the nose; the reduced speed of the air to the supercharger had a detrimental effect on the performance of the aircraft, but the decreased performance was considered acceptable. This variant was also fitted with a larger oil tank and desert survival gear behind the pilot s seat. A new "desert" camouflage scheme was applied. Many VB(trop)s were modified by 103 MU (Maintenance Unit-RAF depots in which factory fresh aircraft were brought up to service standards before being delivered to squadrons) at Aboukir, Egypt by replacing the Vokes filter with locally manufactured "Aboukir" filters, which were lighter and more streamlined. Two designs of these filters can be identified in photos: one had a bulky, squared off filter housing while the other was more streamlined. These aircraft were usually fitted with the wide blade Rotol propeller and clipped wings.

Manufacturer Information

Hobbyboss are a relatively new company having only formed in the last couple of years but the rumours are they have spent a long time producing models for Trumpeter and seem to be very experienced in creating state of the art injection moulded kits. The first company to produce embedded photo etch they have caused some serious stirs in a very short space of time and they continue to make a great range of high quality affordable model kits. One to watch for the future.
