Aeroclub/Airfix Spitfire Mk 21
January 27, 2016 in Aviation
This is a conversion of the Airfix Seafire 46/47 using the old Aeroclub Spitfire Mk. 21 conversion set. The conversion uses the extended kit wing, landing gear, exhausts and miscellaneous parts along with Aeroclub’s fuselage, radiator baths, tailplanes and spinner/propeller parts, I adapted a Squadron vacuformed canopy to the Aeroclub fuselage.
The pilot was pieced together from a Monogram Typhoon pilot and bits of styrene, solder and paper straps.
Paint is Testors Model Master enamels, and decals came from a mix of Techmod RAF insignia, Tally Ho serial numbers and Airfix Spit Mk XII code letters for No. 91 squadron. This machine – LA200 – appears in a photo from Osprey’s ‘Griffon Spitfire Aces’.
