Description

This is the plane that won WW II for the allies. Such a great looking aircraft. I originally modelled this as jewellery (earrings or pendant) with a hole in the tail section, which also had to be thickened beyond normal dimensions. This version doesn't have the hole, and I've printed it at 2.5 scale so that the modelling on the exhaust manifold can be seen.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... suggests that it was the Hawker Hurricane that did most of the work. Perhaps the Supermarine Spitfire is better known because it was more popular at the time since it was the more modern aircraft.

Yes, great plane, but I believe you are both wrong. I am pretty sure it was the A-bomb that won WWII for the allies (carried by a B-29 Superfortress). :)

Cool! Yes, I thought there might be a little more subtlety to the story that my version of it had skipped over. Further refinement greatly appreciated! :)

Actually, I believe this is the plane that protected the UK until the P51 Mustang came along and won WWII for the allies (thanks to those awesome Merlin engines provided by the brits). ;)
