Airfix quick build – spitfire
Got a belated Xmas gift from Grandkid Ezra yesterday. It a kinda non-official Lego kit and good for ages 5+. The decals are stickers and as I later found out, they have the sticking power of a frightened limpet to a rock. A quick check shows the kit is a tad bigger than 1:48 and the serial number is for a Mk.IIa built by Castle Bromwich Aircraft Factory. P7350 served with 266Sq, 603Sq and 616Sq and is now with BBMF with markings for 41(F) Sqn. EB⦾G
Mind the photos as this is a kitchen build and the lighting had its way. Grandkid master builder Ezra at the helm. The goods…
It starts. Some parts require a little more force than a 7 year old can muster. The gaps get to me a little more than they should.
Comes with a handy stand as there is no landing gear
This is the worst of three photos, because you know, the internet is forever and he will one day regret this
Total build time was about 15 minutes. There are about 6-8 more in the series including a P-51 and a Bf 109 for WW2. Highly recommended for the youngling in your life
