Revell 1/32 Mk2a Spitfire

December 27, 2014 in Aviation

Hi folks, hope everyone has had a good Christmas and are all ready for the New Year.
Well 2014 was a hard year for me I’ve really struggled to produce anything everything I started ended in the bin of doom never to be seen again. Then I noticed the new Revell Spitfire in the stock so quickly purchased it and decided that’s it I am going to build this so it was going to be an OOB build, the only thing I added were a set of RB Productions seatbelts.
Well folks I actually managed to finish it and I have to say Revell have produced a superb kit that is in my opinion of course. I only had to use a little Master Prime on a couple of joints and I think that could have been down to me.
Checkout my pictures all comments good and bad welcome ( sorry about the rubbish pictures).
Happy New Year to all our followers.
Regards Steve N.

  1. Looks well used Steve, like the paint work.
    The seat belts could of sat flatter against the seat back.
    Well done mate.

  2. A very nice rendition of one of the most iconic WW II fighters. Well done!!!

  3. Good looking Spit Steve. What’s next?

  4. Hi Al, I’m just finishing of a 1/32 Bristol M1 from the Alley Cat resin kit.

  5. Hi everyone, I can honestly say this kit is superb value for money saying a curtain Japanese manufacturers is a £100 more and I can’t see the difference.
    Revell certainly have got the price right for what you get.

  6. I waited for a little more than a year from the time this kit was announced to when it was actually produced. As someone who loves everything “Spitfire” (especially early marques) I bought two of them. Personally,I do not think Revell did as well of a job on their Spitfire as they did on their Bf-109G kit. There are quite a few flaws on this “Spit” kit, but nothing that cannot be overcome. Still, OOB it builds into a very nice replica. Well done, Steve!

    • Hi Seamus, you right but I’ve got to admit the price and the fit of the parts and what you get is superb a couple more will be coming out of stock and going into the stash.
      thanks for the reply.
      Steve.

  7. Nice Spitfire, Steve. Well build and nicely presented.
    Brush painting ?

  8. Beautiful job Steve. Never get tired of seeing one of these grand old ladies.
