Tamiya 1/48th PR Spitfire

This is a combination of the Tamiya Spitfire MkV and the Pavla PR conversion kit. Both are great in their own right. This was an easy and very pleasant build indeed. The aircraft was painted in overall RAF Sky. The PR Spitfires were kept exceptionally clean by the standards of the time, hence the “egg shell” finish which helped with maintaining efficient airflow and speed. Eduard provided the interior photo etch. A great and highly recommended conversion…
