Another of my old builds from 1989. Made to represent an ace who once lived about 15 miles from where I live. Frank Hill became a flight commander [308FS] and in May-42 went to England where the 31st Fighter Group was flying Spitfires. Hill part[...]
I remember quite well when I bought the first Spitfire from the matchbox kit in elementary school. It was a great joy! The model seemed difficult to me then, requiring working with a modeling knife. Of course, everything was painted with brushes[...]
Greetings to all members,
This is another unboxing review of the battle of Britain gift set which includes not two not three but four aircraft that were involved in that battle which are the Spitfires, Hawker Hurricane's, Stuka dive bombers and[...]
1/48 Airfix Spitfire Mk.V painted with Tamiya and Mr. Color paints, weathered with oils and chalk pastels. I painted the markings and exhaust stains and no decals were used because I didn't have any lol. The markings for this plane are fictional[...]
This is a Revell/Hasegawa Early Spitfire. The box was dated 2000.
I found it on the consignment table at the local hobby shop.
I was inspired to build this by an EAA video of a man named Bob DeFord

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[...]
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 [...]
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. [...]
