Dietz Dolls Aviation Pinup Series
Supermarine Spitfire Mk Ix & Kayla
- © Britt Dietz -
Another 'Aviation Pinup Series' pinup featuring Kayla and a tribute to the brave men who gave their all during the Battle of Britain... with the RAF Supermarine Spitfire. One of the most widely recognized aircraft in the world, the Supermarine Spitfire was first flown in March of 1936. This 370mph fighter alongside the Hawker Hurricane were the leading line of defense against German Luftwaffe dominance over Great Britain in WW2 in the 'Battle of Britain.' The last Spitfire was retired from flight in 1961, with over 20,350 built (more than any other British aircraft). Powered by a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine and then later with a Rolls-Royce Griffon engine, the Spitfire was one of the few aircraft to continually be improved throughout the course of the war and after as the backbone of the Royal Air Force.
This is a new 'simple' type of aviation pinup using Army Air Force, Navy, and Marine aircraft ranging from fighters to transports to bombers. Each will feature a pinup with an aircraft and the matching US insignia for that aircraft. The background will also be themed to the aircraft's general colors. The Dietz Dolls Aviation Pinup Series features World War 2 aircraft (called Warbirds) paired with a pinup model wearing authentic flight clothing to the 1940s era. Available for purchase in all sorts of different sizes including posters!
