I Gotta Spit Again

February 12, 2019 · in Aviation · · 10 · 1.9K

Model number three for the year. This one I started and finished in 2019! This is the mk. XIVc.

The cockpit is quite sparse. Fortunately the Eduard mk IX has a few extra parts in it so I used them to dress it up a bit. The canopy part is a bit thick so I didn't worry about adding too much detail.

A pretty straightforward build of my favorite Spitfire. The next time I spot one of these I'm going to snap it up, unless Airfix puts one out in the meantime!

    Nice work on that model Scott. The paint job is well done,

  7. Very nice build. Even though that kit is only adequate, I guess it is still our best choice for a XIV. You've done a good job with it.

  8. Airfix actually does have a Spit model in the 1:72 scale. I built one not long ago.
