Spitfire FR.Mk.XIVe, 451 Squadron, RAAF.
Obviously a popular subject, judging by earlier postings. I had earmarked the two Xtradecals offerings some time before the kit’s release, hoping that a pleasant surprise was not too far away. Maybe it is not too much to hope that Airfix might bring out a kit of the earlier, hi-back version? In the meantime, I have another of these to build; this time with the normal wingtips & broad chord rudder; maybe as a Mk.18.
I did use some alternative parts: Quickboost resin exhausts, Eduard seat belts & Hasegawa four slot wheel hubs; otherwise out of the box. Paints used were Tamiya 81, 82, 83.
Hope you like it.
