AMP 1/48 Supermarine S.5 Schneider Racer

In 1911, a time when floatplanes and flying boats were barely capable of leaving the water, Jacques Schneider introduced the Schneider Cup at a banquet following the 4th annual James Gordon Bennet race for landplanes, for a similar race with sea[...]

Do I really need another Spitfire in my collection? Oh, yes! (or: how an old dream came true)

To the fortunately unasked question of whether "another Spitfire" is really necessary, I would answer: of course! One reason for this lies in the enormous range of what "Spitfire" can mean, as a Mk.I has very little in common with, say, a Mk. XI[...]

Swift

And another one of my older kits to archive, here’s my 1/72 Airfix Supermarine Swift FR 5 from about 5 years ago. When I was a “littler” kid in the late 60’s I made several of the old Hawk Models Swifts. Those were always fun kits to make but, [...]

Beauty is not a question of taste – at least with a Spitfire Mk.II!

Beauty is a matter of taste, as one so aptly says - that a Spitfire represents a formal aesthetic pleasure, only very few doubt it. I would like to make this remark at the beginning of this report, because also in the kit description a lot of vo[...]

Spitfire MK.22

HI All, I recently watched the documentary, Spitfire, and of course, I just had to build one. While the early models are “the classics” I favor the later Griffon powered Spits, so I chose the 1/48, Airfix Mk.22/24. While simultaneously workin[...]

Spitfire Vc. from (mostly) Airfix 1/48

Another Spitfire!! This time it's a Mk. Vc as flown in Malts by Wing Commander Peter Prosser Hanks DFC, who commanded the Luqa Spitfire Wing. BR498 was delivered via HMS Furious on 17th August 1942 & unusually, was not fitted with a tropical[...]

EDUARD 1:72 Spitfire MKVIII

Hi This is my first post here, so I guess ill introduce myself first. I am software developer from South Africa, I started this great hobby about 3 years ago. I like building anything from aviation to sci-fi but I really love 72nd scale plane[...]

1/48 D-day Spitfire

Eduard kit, thanks for looking, Owen Edit: too few words. I've been making models since the late 70's. I've built so many kits that that need filler or modification, that in 2019, I'd never thought I'd have the range and choice of fantastic kits[...]

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.II. Airfix 1/72

Good evening! This model is assembled in the New Year holidays. Easy assembly out of the box. I just added the seat belts to the pilot's seat and made a rivet imitation along the jointing lines. Kokkardy made-up through a stencil. Very nice in t[...]
