@lee_fogel Thanks, Lee! Regarding quality, compared to other resin kits that I’ve seen – strong 4 of 5. The main problem is that surface not as smooth as it should be, but no problems with panel lines and other small details, like rivets.
@davem Thanks, David! It’s also a very interesting build for me – have no idea, what will be at the end!
And now some updates. Build requires to choose painting scheme right now, so it will be variant F – Spitfire of 681 RAF Squadron, Kuala Lumpur, 1945.
Canopy should be opened, so I’ve removed cockpit door on a port side, but not so accurate – you can see a piece of styrene there now.
Next was engine cowling.
While fit with the central part of fuselage was ok, it was not ok with the bottom part of cowling. Boiled water and some pressure fixed this issue.
After installing radiator intake there were some rounds of filling and sanding, nothing special. Maybe, there will be something to fix after priming.
