RAAF Spitfire Mk.Vc, 54 Squadron, Darwin, Australia.

's kit was the only one of this mark available until very recently, when Eduard announced their forthcoming kit. I had already ordered the SH one & since all my previous efforts at a Vc had been kitbashed by various means, I decided to press on & see how it turned out. My previous efforts with this kit had not been happy ones, so I was gratified to find that my problems were minimal & easily overcome. Decals, fit, panel lines & shape were all good. There's plenty of room for the Eduard offering in due course & I look forward to that, but in the meantime I've enjoyed this build, which is what counts.

  1. This is a truly wonderful result, Tony, a great looking "Vc"!
    The fact that it is an SH kit, makes your effort even more respectable!
    Nice airbrushing skills, love the camo borders, they look just "right", not too hard, not too soft.
    Congratulations on this amazing model!
