The kits require at least 1200 hours to construct, depending on options chosen by the builder. The Mk.XXV single seater replica seen here is no longer produced, and was based on the original Spitfire Mk.V, but has a fin and rudder shaped like later versions of the original Spitfire. Production of the replicas has switched to the Mk.XXVI two-seater.
