Default 1:1 Model Spitfire

Saw this on a BBC show last night..pretty impressive!

"BBC show Toy Stories. The model, constructed in three days with the help of local schoolchildren, has been retained at outdoor display at Cosford Air Museum"

Nice 1:1 model!

There's a (real) Spitfire at TAM Museum (it was donated by Rolls-Royce). I believe it's the only Spitfire in Brazil...

The question begs itself: If they went to the trouble and expense of making the moulds for this huge model, will they sell any more of these models? I know this was in celebration of Airfix Model Company, and special for May's show, but I'd like to know if there will be others. As if I was rich enough to afford one.
