More Battle of Britain Builds
Here are some photos from the first four parts of my series on the Battle of Britain which has been running this year in Model Airplane International. I have now finished all the builds and there is still the December issue of the magazine to be published. All told, the builds took 16 months to complete all 12 (I managed a few others in that time too!) but the whole project with the research took over two years. All the builds were built to 1:48. For anyone attempting this project now, the new ICM Ju88 and Do17, Airfix Spitfire, Hurricane and forthcoming Defiant, will make the job a lot easier!
The builds are:
Tamiya Spitfire Mk1 plus Aires cockpit backdated to Mk1 (including hand pump for undercarriage)
Italeri Hurricane Mk1
Eduard Bf 110C
