Eduard’s Spitfire Mk.IXc (late) in 1/48 scale, by Tony Prince
The best Spitfire kit in this scale in my opinion. I’ve built most of them too, from the ancient Monogram Mk IX to Otaki, Tamiya Mk Vs, Airfix Mk IX, ICM & Hasegawa. They have all had their problems; some I could live with & others were binned. I’ve modified & corrected most of these to some degree up to now, but the Eduard kit is straight out of the box apart from the roundels & the addition of an oxygen tube in the cockpit. The model with the invasion stripes is a Hasegawa Mk IX just for comparison. Basic corrections have been made to the fuselage length & spinner. Good to see an accurate Spit IX at long last from Eduard.
