  1. Spitfire LF Vb

    Monty Python, Dave N and Lawzer, Thanks for the positive feedback folks. The Vb kit comes with the parts for clipped wings but it's not noted as an option in the instructions. The grey/green scheme was available in the Sky Decals sheet. Cheers GregπŸ˜‰

    Hi Hamiltonian, All the control surfaces are separate and capable of being dropped or elevated. Cheers Greg
  5. Spitfire LF Vb

    Thanks Bernd πŸ˜‰ The LF version maintained the mark 5 in frontline squadrons through D day due to its great low level performance. It should get some recognition for that. Cheers mate Greg

  7. Spitfire LF Vb

    Well, here is my latest completion the 1/48 Spitfire Vb from Airfix. Its the most recent tooling, and when completed is a good looking Spitfire. The build was not as easy as i expected however and i fell foul of the precise engineering of the kit when closing up the fuselage, which led to problems fitting the cowling section in front of the canopy. Much teeth grinding and sanding ensued before i achieved fit of sorts. I have to say i was a bit disheartened by this what with it being new Airfix, but heyho its done. The undercarriage is a bit over complicated and weak for me so i will have to be careful when moving the model around. Markings are from Sky Decals and represent Squadron Leader Geoffrey Northcott's machine from 402 Canadian Squadron. EP120 still flys today and was retsored to flying condition around 1980 after a stint as a gate guardian. Many of the LF (clipped wing) Spitfires were converted standard Vb's and led to them being referred to as the clipped, cropped, and clapped Spitty (some being repaired war weary examples). Here, hopefully, are the pics. Thanks for looking, Greg.

  15. Spitfire Mk1A 1/24 Airfix

    Hi Stever219, My Airfix Vb had all the bits for the 1a in the box. It wasn't the memorial flight boxing though. Maybe have a check of the sprues in your kit to see. Cheers Greg
