Hi everybody who likes Spitfires. Here is my newest creation, a Spit IXe by in 1 : 144 scale.

A Beautiful gem indeed and a pleasant work. The only things I had to add are the underwing bomb racks and the mirror.

Great job from Eduard!

  1. You must have the eyes of a hawk, sir...beautiful job! Just think of the display space available if ALL your builds were that scale. 🙂

    • Hi, Mr. Craig

       Thank you for the appreciation. As I am nearly sixty, my eyes need to be boosted by lens and my hands are shivering. I built only airplanes, concerning the history of the Czechoslovak aviation, both civil and military, with the exeptions as the Spitfires and the airliners, no matter what scale they are. Sometimes I will make  pics of my collection as a whole, total 140 built plastic models.
          Keep flying high!

  2. Incredible build !

  3. Amazing, Jiri, and very attractive, I'd be afraid of losing it somewhere!

    somebody shrunk your Spitfire !



  5. Your Spitfire on its landing strip - a jewel.

    • Thank you for liking it.

      The landing strip is sold in my country for approx. one Euro, I have only added some artificial grass and some dirt.

      Happy modelling.

  6. Very interesting to see a Spit in Czech markings. Nice work.

  7. Jiri, anyone who can put a rearview mirror on that has my sincere admiration!
    I'll remember that when I start complaining about some problem in my 48th scale builds.
    Inspirational, show us some more, sometime.

  8. I wish I could see that well in 1/72. Outstanding

  9. Wow, beautiful build especially given the scale, and a great space saver,(I'm with Craig on that). I also really like the markings.

  10. So very nice Mr. Fiala. These are not that easy to make look that convincing. I built a Stuka thinking I would have it done in a afternoon. After all it just a small kit. It took a few days, and I enjoyed it all the way.
    Very cool looking. And I also very much like the markings.

    Speaking of the "PUNCH" derived from a 1/72 scale model.
    WOW nice work.

  12. Dear colleagues.

      Thank you all for your appreciation. It gave me a real kick. Sometimes I will built something simillar. I have bought a Lavočkin La.5FN in that same scale.
