A unique collector’s item based on a spectacular light installation in this year’s Blackpool Illuminations is now on-sale. This Airfix model is a spectacular tribute to one of the world’s most iconic fighter aircraft.
During World War II Blackpool residents raised funds to sponsor three Spitfires known as Progress I, II and III.
This scale model of Spitfire Progress II is complete with a bespoke Blackpool livery on its fuselage, and is part of a special collaboration between VisitBlackpool and the internationally-renowned model kit company, Airfix.

Designed by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and built by the Blackpool Illuminations team using 3D printing technology for the first time, the Spitfire Island installation is located on Gynn Roundabout in the midst of the six-mile seafront display. It includes replicas of three Spitfires – Progress I, II and III – which were all paid for by local residents.
