1/48 Spitfire FR. XIVe
This is my second crack at the new Airfix kit. This one represents an Indian Air Force example assigned to the training center at Ambala, India in 1945. The internet is full of excellent reference photos for these low back Griffon engined Spits. Indian and Belgian planes are especially well documented. The model assembled smoothly with only a set of Eduard seat belts added. I painted it with Xtracolor and Humbrol enamels, along with Tamiya white acrylic for the theater bands. I cobbled the decals together from the kit, an old Aeromaster sheet, and letters/numbers from Xtradecal sheets.
Just like the first one I built, this was a very enjoyable project. Thanks for looking!
