1/48 Eduard Spitfire XVI
I picked up this weekender kit off eBay for "a price I could not refuse" and it turned out to have an Eduard Space set inside for the instrument panel, and the Lifelike decal sheet that included this Spitfire XVI, an airplane that was
"famous" for having been the subject of a Charles Brown photograph when it was based at the Central Flying School in 1948. Beyond that, nothing's really known about it.
This was a "post war" kit, with the upper wings having the bulges over the gear well for the larger tires, and metal-covered elevators.
The model was painted with Vallejo "Dull Aluminum" (which is only about "semi-matt") for High Speed Silver. After I did the decals, I finished off with a coat of clear "Satin."
I've said it before, I will say it again - there will always be room here for another Eduard Spitfire.
