RAF legend – Spitfire… Mk. IX, 312. Sqn, Wing Commander Tomáš Vybíral, D.S.O., D.F.C.
it is my pleasure to present here my last build. It is really special and means a lot for me.
I would like to pay tribute to all RAF pilots , especially Czechoslovaks, who fought in WW2 for our freedom. I always wanted to build a detailed kit and also to build some airplane from WW2 which was flown by Czechoslovak pilots. It is pure patriotism and we should be patriots a bit, shouldn't we? 🙂
Moreover, this pilot has served for short time here in Nitra before the WW2.
I am really happy that Eduard made excellent kit with a lot of details and I really got to like it! I am quite sure that this Spitfire is not the last one.
The build details are here on iModeler:
Accessories used in the build:
Brassin cockpit (Eduard) - however, the one in the kit is enough detailed, so this is not so worth to buy it
Brassin engine (Eduard)
Brassin gun bays (Eduard)
Stencils (Eduard) - I had to buy them as I built from overtrees kit
The scale is 1:48.
For those who want to see it "live", it will attend the exhibition in Telford this year.
