gingerbob posted a topic in Edgar Brooks Memorial Group BuildOK, sticking my neck out with my intended build: NN660, the short-lived first prototype for the Spiteful Source: http://ipmsuk.proboards.com/thread/5630/supermarine-spiteful-1st-prototypes-colour I'm not actually sure how I'm going to attack it yet- I've got Falcon vac Spiteful and XIV fuselage, and I'm tempted to try to do a vac kitbash, but may go with an injection fuselage instead. bob [Edit: 28 Apr I'm going to try to do a production Spiteful as well.]
I was going through my Spiteful/Seafang files yesterday and found these images of the props I'd pulled from another site (I'd right clicked them without really looking at them when I downloaded them). The first image is of spiteful NN664. The blades here look something like the type you may expect to find on a spitfire 21-24 This next set of blades are on prototype Seafang VG471 and remarkably like those supplied by Academy for their MkXIV. They carry the code EXP as far as I can make out. My attempts to measure these blades put them at the same diameter and I calculated 11' 3" by nefarious means so I would suspect they are both 11' rather than 10' 4". Anybody got any thoughts on these blades? Has anybody got the resources to identify them? Thanks in advance, Dave

This was completed last weekend - I had originally posted it within an earlier thread but decided it needed it's own! Trumpeter 1/48 Supermarine Spiteful (PR) In my view, this is a great little kit - no vices to speak of and went together so easily, one minute a pile of parts - the next a built up Spiteful awaiting a layer of paint. I wanted mine to look a little different - now as this was designed to be fast, I thought, what if it had been used instead of the PR19 - so here we are - A spiteful PR variant. No weathering on this at all - not even a panel wash. And for a change, this one has been brush painted. Hope you like it (I know its not perfect, but hey, built to enjoy and to get my mojo back a little - but can't build anything too big as will be moving in the next couple of months or so and small are easier to pack and move!)
