For the Club Display for 1997/98, we ambitiously decided to portray the story of
the Supermarine Spitfire family in a constant 1/48th scale. The kits available were
limited, and the ingenuity required was considerable, but we succeeded so well that
we were awarded the inaugural “Jesse Wright Memorial Trophy” at the 1997 IPMS (UK)
National Championships and Modelling Weekend. The display still tours as the backbone
of the IPMS/UK Spitfire SIG display.
