Again…an older build (I think it’s all there this time) – an A8 variant maybe (?). I do see that the antenna wire is gone, but I can’t blame everything on the cats. I used to take an old greeting […]

My latest Spitfire. It’s an Airfix 1/48 kit. Completed about a month ago using Humbrol enamels and an old Eaglestrike sheet for the Rhodesian markings. I never get tired of Spitfires!
