If you happen to have AU$118,250 burning a hole in your IPO-enhanced wallet, here's the perfect way to while away your leisure time. Supermarine Aircraft has been producing Spitfire kits for about a decade. Unlike the original incredibly difficult to build wood and fabric versions Like the original, this recreation is fabricated from durable aluminum. It has a respectable 193 knot (222 mph) top speed, and a range of approximately three hours -- enough to mount a quick early morning sortie to a neighbouring city.

Most of the really hard work has already been done for you, but you'll have to put in about 700 hours of fiddly effort to turn your kit into a lean, mean playing machine. The final product will be an 80% scale easy-to-fly reminder of the original. Expect to spend a couple of hundred hours learning the ropes in more docile aircraft before hopping into your new toy.
