R.A.A.F Spitfire Vc. 79 Sqn. Momote, New Guinea, 1944.
I'd actually started a Bf109F for our club group build (which of course didn't happen) when I became distracted by the prospect of building another 1/48 Spitfire using two kits to get the universal wing necessary for the Vc. I had a spare Hasegawa Mk.IX & an Airfix Mk.Vb. Wing to fuselage transplant respectively provided a bit of kit bashing was carried out. Since I've done two of these before, there was no reason not to get started.
Wing root/ fuselage joint was pretty easy with only 1mm. or so each side to fill & fettle. Amputation & transplant of the port radiator with an Airfix oil cooler was pretty straightforward & otherwise each major portion used its own parts as necessary. Paints were Valleho & extracrylic & decals from Aeromaster. I've since picked up the '109 & you might see it fairly soon (provided I don't get distracted again). This was a fun job & provided the opportunity for lots of research. Somewhere between my hobby supplier & my front door is a Special Hobby Spit Vc. Out of the box this time.
