Eduard Spitfire IX

This is Eduard’s Spitfire IX in 1:72 which I’ve just finished for Model Airplane International Magazine. A superb kit, detail is amazing but definitely not a beginners kit, despite its tiny size. Eduard have crammed an amazing amount of detail into this kit which seems to be like a miniature version of the 1:48 kit. Fit isnt as good as its 1:48 big brother however and it does need a little work, nothing major though. Hope you enjoy the photos!

2 additional images. Click to enlarge.
