Airfix Spitfire MK 1 1/72

So finally found time to take pictures. I'm pretty happy with the small plane I have to say is not everything perfect but to improve it is enough from all I think.

It looks worn enough (nice weathering by the way) that it's wholly plausible that it has been flying through the entire war and repainted with the latest camo, even though it has probably been now posted to a more quiet sector where it won't have to deal with Doras and 262's.

So perhaps an aerodrome commander's hack - the aircraft in which he survived the Battle of Britain?  Plausible.  :)

Nice work, btw.  :)  One sees so few Spit Mk Is these days - makes a nice change of scenery.  :)
