I just finished another Spitfire to add to my collection. This time it’s the Airfix 1/72 Mk. Vb in the colors of Don Gentile’s aircraft. I believe the molds for this are from the mid 70’s and while there is a lack of detail (as in no wheel bay detail, a very minimal and inaccurate cockpit, etc.) we currently expect, if you leave the canopy closed (and there is no open option anyway) and don’t worry about wheel well detail, you get a nice looking model for not much money spent.
I think it’s one of my better looking 72nd Spitfires so I’m happy with it.
