1/32 Spitfire 24
Since the Spitfire XIV was such a success, here come some more 1/32 Griffon Spitfires.
First up, the Revell Spitfire 24. Out of the box, this kit lacks all sorts of things: accurate cowling, accurate prop, acurate canopy, accurate radiators. The recent release, however, has excellent decals (there is also a very good Xtradecal sheet for it).
Soooo… what you see here is the Greymatter Figures update: new resin spinner and prop, new cowling, new radiators, new canopy. This is definitely a project for the former Bondo Industries Difficult Kits Division, it has a lot of putty on it as you can see from the construction shots.
Kit decals for 80 Squadron at Hong Kong, 1951-53.
The end result is worth the effort, but there’s a lot of effort required.
