Spitfire Mk V – Operation Starkey

This project was a long time coming as work and family commitments must trump modelling time. Nevertheless, here is my 1/48 Mk V spit from Tamiya, finished at last! Operation Starkey was a ruse, and part of a larger deception plan carried out [...]

Eduard Spitfire Mk.Ia, 1/48. A Pair of Kiwis over Dunkirk.

'the airspeed indicator read 240 mph, and I thought "this is bloody marvellous!", but then the Spitfire began to shudder and seemed as if it was going to stall. - I realised what had happened, my pitot head had been shot away, and the needle d[...]

Spitfire MK XVI ‘SL 549’ 17th RAF Squadron

Hi everybody, I would like to present you the Spitfire MK XVI. Built 2-3 years ago, here is the model. As usual every parts are coming from the box and no extra added, the build is the 1/48 Eduard Profipack. The kit was, as usual, not a surpr[...]

Fujimi Spitfire Mk. Vb 1/50 scale

I hope this is okay to post a build I made many years ago. This Spitfire was built in 1990, my last build until I recently got back into building kits again. This is Fujimi's 1/50th scale Spitfire Mk. Vb....The later boxings will say 1/48th but [...]

Hawk 1/72 Spitfire Mk. 22 converted into a Mk. XIV

This is a kit bash of the old Hawk kit of their Spitfire Mk. 22 and using Heller's Spitfire Mk. XVI wings, interior and landing gears. The Hawk kit is an old kit from 1967 labeled as a Spitfire Mk. 22 but it is actually the prototype of the Mk. [...]

I built this in tandem with the build I posted yesterday using the earlier and slightly easier to build kit. This is the other famous 57 OTU aircraft, LV⦿N, s/n AR212. I shamelessly copied from yesterdays article...Innards were painted with Tami[...]

Airfix 1:48 Spitfire Mk. I (Kit Number A05126)

The newest Mk.I kit with the fuel tank cover and landing gear issues. Other than that, a great kit. This is WZ⦿H of 19 Squadron, Duxford, 4th May 1939. Innards were painted with Tamiya XF-71 Cockpit Green. Masking tape harnesses. The bottom was [...]

In my second post today, here are some photos of my Eduard 1:48 Spitfire Mk1, built as GR-U, N3290 as it was on the 23 May 1940 just before being shot down whilst on evening patrol over Dunkirk. F/O Gillies was taken prisoner. This will be featu[...]

Trumpeter 1/24th scale Spitfire MkV

Trumpeter's 1/24th scale Spitfire MkV was an interesting build. Out of the box, there's lots wrong but thankfully Grey Matter provide replacement stabilisers (the kit's are moulded fabric-covered), new exhausts and a new seat (but you have the m[...]
