  1. You would think after all these years, we’d have enough of looking at model spitfires. But no, here I am in 2020 (about 45 years after building my first Spitty) drooling over a Vb at the breakfast table.

    A lovely build - finely painted, lusciously presented, and very, very pretty.

    ‘Liked’...a lot.


  2. Wow! The finish is superb and the photography is top notch. Well done Valter @zagorten27, very well done.

  3. Fantastic looking build ! The first black and white photo could easily be taken as real... it's that good.

  4. Congratulations on fantastic looking model. Looks so real!

  5. She's just gorgeous Valter. Model & photography are among the best I've seen & speak volumes for your skill; especially since its a conversion from a Hasegawa Mk.V.

  6. Fantastic Spit, and looks really good in the Italian livery.
