Yeah, It’s Another Spitfire

Adding to my continually growing Spitfire collection (I may have a problem), here’s my tenth completed kit for this year, the AZ Model 1/72 Spitfire Mk. VII. This is a pretty good kit. It has good detail and good fit. I decided to try a figur[...]

A Heller of a Spitfire

Here’s my old school version of the old school Heller 1/72 Spitfire I. I bought this kit for a buck at a contest last summer and since it wasn’t even close to modern kit standards, I decided to build it like I did when I was a kid: out of the bo[...]

Eduard Spitfire HF Mk.VIII 1/72.

Another one Spitfire FR Mk.XIV (Airfix 1/48)

I know, I know, but I just can't stop building Spitfires, and it's another one in the headlines from my side – a new Airfix FR Mk.XIV. I was waiting for this kit to appear in my local hobby shop, and here is the result. Spitfires are my most fre[...]
