Eduard Spitfire IX repost

Sorry about the dark photos last time. Photography isn't my forte... I hope you enjoy these brighter pics .

1/48 Eduard Spitfire IXc

Here she is, 32 days in the making. What a nice kit this is! I finished it with Humbrol enamels and Eagle strike decals, 309th FS, 31st FG, USAAF, Italy, 1944. It assembles flawlessly, despite some odd engineering around the cowl, radiators a[...]

1/48 Spitfire PR.19

This is the new Airfix kit that I built last month. In my opinion, it's their best Spitfire yet. It surpasses the Mk.22/24 and Seafire 46/47s from the 1990s due to better detailing and nicer moldings. Others on this site have gone into detail [...]

Eduard Spitfire IXc (late production)

OOB other than using the last of my Victory Productions decal sheet for the national insignia and decals from an old Aeromaster sheet to do John Plagis' Spitfire IXc as it probably appeared on July 24, 1944 when he scored his last aerial victory[...]

Flying Heritage Collection – The “Old” Hangar

A few more shots from the Grand Opening, this time from the "old" hangar. I love that the Hurricane has been properly restored in RCAF HWE markings, but they really need to pull off the spinner. The Oscar is airworthy, but not flown because of[...]

Ultracast 1/32 “RAF Fighter Pilot”

While my Revell/Hasegawa 1/32 Spitfire MkII project progresses, I thought I would work on its driver. As, when completed, my Spitfire will be wearing the markings of a generic aircraft from the famous 303 Polish Squadron, I thought I would add [...]

The new 1/48th scale Eduard Spitfire Mk IX has been out for a few weeks by now and a number of reviews and quick builds have already surfaced around the web. The consensus seem to be that this is a great kit in all respects, with correct dimens[...]

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.II No: 41 Squadron

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.II No: 41 Squadron, Sqd. Ldr. D.O. Findley Hornchurch AB December 1940. Kit: Revell 1:32

1/48 Spitfire Mk.I

This is an Airfix kit finished with Humbrol enamels over Tamiya lacquer aluminum. The roundels are from Superscale. The kit is a bit thick and chunky in areas, but is an easy route to a very early Spitfire. Built with care, it looks the part [...]

1/48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk.1b

An early version of Spitfire from the past which is still one of favourite pieces of my Spitfire collection. This is 1/48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk.1b with the markings of No 92 Sqdn. during the summer of 1941. One of the original cannon armed Spitfire[...]
