Yep, she's go her faults, but if you wanted to give a kid a kit to get them into modeling, you could do a lot worse than handing them this one. As a Spitfire it ain't much, as a model it's great.

Plus it's a lovely looker  :thumbsup:
I'm tempted to dig the Attacker out.  I could do with a decent one in the line up.

It's a little bit of work Lee and the wing/fuselage joint isn't that strong (guess how I found out....twice  :mellow:), but overall I've enjoyed it.

Meanwhile undersides on all have had two coats, probably need a third very thin one (greenstuff putty  :rolleyes:) but doubt if will be today as it's rather parky in the model room.

Latest in the jetliners club:

Going by the builds in the magazines Zvezda are getting a very good reputation as far as airliner kits go.

Not kits, but two sets of CMK CFT's for F-16's. I have just put a pair on my XL, and even with heating them up with boiling water they were a nightmare to get to fit on the fuselage and stay put. And on't I know it as one of them has moved at one end and sticks out like a dogs d***. so that's my F-16 XL ruined. Project FUBAR will be the heading when I finish and post this build  :banghead: :banghead:

I feel for you mate. Had many a problem with resin cockpit inserts in the past  :banghead:

on top of everything for the Amphib etc GB I have started an ACE Su-25 Grach and am finishing off a Hasegawa FW 190 Dora I started a while back and then put aside.

The scheme for the Su 25 is yet to be determined but the Dora will be in zenrat industries colours (as I haven't done one for a while.

It should be noted that photos of 'in-service' F-35's don't show any of those squiggly panel tape lines

Interiors and exteriors rarely align, one of the best examples being the APC from Aliens, it's
almost a freakin' TARDIS.


Also railway carriages and airliners in movies and on TV.  They get to be very wide.
