Spitfire Mk.I early (Eduard 1/48)
This model kit is one of my old wishes – a very early Spit with Watts two-blade propeller and the "flat" canopy in 1/48 scale. Eduard has released it's "Spitfire Story" box just two weeks ago, so it was a real quick build for me (but I've started a week before the August 1st).
A few words about the kit itself:
It's the standard Eduard Spitfire kit. If you've built one, you already know how it fits. The only thing here worth mentioning -it's better to attach gun barrels after the wing assembly, not before.
New Eduard decals are hard to work with. Even if you will decide to use it - walkways to be painted anyway.
Positive rivets. It's not in the scale to my mind. I would prefer not to have them.
