A Heller of a Spitfire
Here’s my old school version of the old school Heller 1/72 Spitfire I. I bought this kit for a buck at a contest last summer and since it wasn’t even close to modern kit standards, I decided to build it like I did when I was a kid: out of the box and hand painted with a brush. The decals were no good and I didn’t want to spend any money for decals for this one so I cobbled together various codes, serial numbers, and roundels to fake it. Really, it was a fun build, but one I’ll keep in the back of the Spitfire collection.
