Evening all :)

 

The latest off the bench is Revell's new 1/32nd Spitfire MkIXc, which as I'm sure you know follows their release from a few years back of a Spitfire MkII and thus the breakdown of the kits is almost identical.

 

This was a very pleasurable build and it went together relatively trouble free; the only filling needed was as the wing root fairings where the moulding was slightly short - I've seen this on many other builds and know it wasn't just my kit which has this issue. The simple solution is to add a small plastic card shim to each fairing and smooth it in with Milliput and a wet finger, and the problem is solved in under 10 minutes.

 

At £25 I thought it fantastic value for money and will definitely be purchasing a few more. 

 

Decals for this one came from Xtradecal as the code-letters were off colour-wise on the Revell sheet. Paints were from the Xtracolour enamel range and it was finished with a coat of Humrol Matt varnish.

 

Supermarine Spitfire McIXc, 132 Squadron, RAF Detling, November 1943:

And alongside the MkIIa which I completed earlier in the year:

Let's hope Revell keep giving us 1/32nd Spitfires at such reasonable prices - and roll on that P-51D!

Excellent build and really well finished. Oh for the space to build and display larger scale models!
