1/48 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk VIII

This is the 1/48 Hasegawa Mk VIII Spitfire flown by Squadron Leader Lance Wade. Wade was from Texas and enlisted in the RAF in Canada. Being from Texas myself I like building planes flown by Texas pilots. I apologize to you Spitfire buffs for[...]

iModeler Review – New Tool 1/48 Airfix Spitfire Vb

Some of you may well be asking why do we need another 1/48 Spitfire?? Hasegawa, and Tamiya have both produced excellent kits of the Vb, and there are readily available kits by some of the short run producers - Whether or not any of these have ac[...]

Desert Rose

Beyond being historically important aircraft, Spitfires are just beautiful. I find that their iconic design emerges best with the desert camouflage, especially with the color scheme of the Polish Fighting Team. Possibly this is because of the b[...]

Revegawa 1:32 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1

My latest build..... The Revell 1:32 scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1, in fact it's a "mongrel" Revell parts and Hasegawa parts in one box sold under the Revell brand. Let me tell you first that I do not like Spitfires, nor do I like P-51 Mustang[...]

1/48 Airfix Spitfires

I took these pics to share with a friend who is a Spitfire and Airfix neophyte. I thought I'd post them for you guys too. The fuselage decals on the City of Edinburgh Mk. 22 are oversized, but didn't know it until a year after it was done. I [...]

A Real Lady – Airfix 1/48 Spitfire PR XIX

Following the last year's review of the 1/48 Airfix Spitfire PR Mk XIX by Tom Cleaver, this is one of these kits I just had to lay my hands on. The idea was a simple out-of-the box project with a single-color paint scheme giving a chance to e[...]

Hasegawa Spitfire Mk VIII ‘Hava Go Jo!’ in 1/48

When I first built this kit it was hot off the press & being well & truly bagged on the internet. I don't usually run a ruler over my models, preferring to the eyeball Mk.1 to gauge accuracy. In this case, the critics were right & so[...]

D-Day +5. 1/48 Spitfire IXc

Admiring all of your great D-Day builds made me realize that I only have one D-Day aircraft in the collection. Work kept me from posting it until today. It is an Otaki Mk.VIII converted into a "faux" Mk. IX. I replaced the kit's pointed rudde[...]

Airfix Spitfire PR.XIX 1/48

Spitfire PR.XIX with Xradecals & Ultracast add-onns. Decals, tyres and seat. Brake lines added from wire. My first PRU Blue ever and I tried to built it as almost new and well maintained - therefore weatheing kept in minimum. Hope you'll lik[...]

Airfix 1/48 Seafire 17 (repost)

I just took a few better pics and posted them. Again, it's a great kit straight from the box. I painted it with Humbrol enamels including my last tins of Humbrol Authentics Slate Grey and Extra Dark Sea Grey. I must have had these tins since [...]
