Supermarine Seafire Mk47 WW2 1939-1947
February 13, 2014 in Aviation
With the war in Europe now over and in a world where nuclear technology has never been developed the war against Japan rumbles on, the British government keen to reduce some of its crippling debt and in a bit of uncharacteristic showing off is supplying the U.S. with its latest ultra-powerful new Seafire in a reverse of the lend lease policy……
“What ifs”are not everyones cup of tea but this idea wormed its way into the dark recesses of my mind and wouldn’t stop wriggling until I did something about it, originally this Seafire was going to be reincarnated as a Reno racer after seeing Joe Caputo’s post but somehow this was born instead.
The kit is Airfix ,1/48,with an Aeries resin seat ,also thanks to Dave Foxall of 580 modelers who supplied the decals ,some of you may remember the problem I had varnishing this build first time around – glad I didn’t chuck it out now.
