Desert Air Force Spitfire Mk.VcEduard 1/48 Profipack

September 3, 2022 · in Aviation · · 26 · 1K

This is a non-box 1943 Air Force scheme using the Mk.Vc Tropical (with Volkes air filter) optional parts from 's absolutely excellent new Mk.Vc ProfiPack kit. It has the slightly awkward and unnecessarily fiddly cockpit and wheel well assembly that all Eduard Spits share, but the surface detail is a new step up - the raised rivet sections are stunning, and if you're careful the fit is like a dream as always. Highly recommended.

As ever, build video can be found here:

  9. Splendid work Justin, and in the best looking Spitfire camouflage.
    So if it’s a non box decal option, which decals did you use?

    • I used some Xtradecals ones, but with a slight alteration after one set of squadron codes ripped (AX-N should be the code, instead of AX-M here - I made the latter with a spare sheet).

  10. Well done, Justin. She fits right in with a great flight line!...I'm partial to the clipped wing.

  11. Lovely work Justin. Excellent result and well done.
