1/48 Spitfire Mk.I
April 7, 2013 in Aviation
This is an Airfix kit finished with Humbrol enamels over Tamiya lacquer aluminum. The roundels are from Superscale. The kit is a bit thick and chunky in areas, but is an easy route to a very early Spitfire. Built with care, it looks the part and I’m happy to have it in my display case! I think this was the last pre-Hornby Spitfire released by Airfix. The newer XII, Seafire XVII, and PR.19 are light years ahead of this one in quality. Still, it’s a fun kit of an important variant.
