D-Day Spifire Mk.IXc (Late Version) in 1/48 by Eduard
Because who doesn’t love a Spitfire?
As always, a really lovely kit from Eduard’s ProfiPack 1/48 scale warbird series. I figured it had been too long since I made a good old Spitfire and had never done one with invasion stripes so chose this scheme, representing ML135 as flown by Canadian RAF volunteer Jerry Billing on D-Day. Sadly ML135 was shot down by flak in July 1944 and Jerry Billing, wounded, narrowly escaped capture but made it back to Allied lines.
