Here is the kit many have been waiting for – the brand-new Airfix 1/48 Spitfire FR. Mk XIV. This is the pictorial tour of the pre-preduction kit sprues as presented at the 2018 Scale Modelworld show in Telford. The product itself is scheduled for release in March 2019.
It is good to finally see a new-tool 1/48 Griffon Spitfire fighter, and in terms of accuracy and feature I must admit that this kit looks very promising. Good work Airfix.
The photo conditions at the show were less than ideal, but I hope that the pictures can tell the story.
When assembling this picture set I have been experimenting with the new sticky tags feature soon to be introduced to iModeler. Click on the pictures for my review comments and tell me if you like the format!
