  1. Thank-you. Conversion to a GR4 would explain how it went to the Gulf War as a GR1.
  2. That's part of the problem. One ref says it's a Gulf War plane, but a decal calls it a GR4, which didn't fly in the Gulf War as I understand.
  3. Horribly mundane question, but give a Yank a break. There's Tornado in desert tan camo named "Nikki/Norra Batty." One ref indicates it's a GR1, another that it's a GR4. One indicates it flew in the Gulf War in '91, another that it flew in later operations post-Gulf War. I'm trying to buy decals and I want a bona fide Gulf War vet. Thanks.
  4. Thanks to all. I'm glad to stick with my Has Spitfires. Yes, I gather that an accurate rendering of the Spitfire is as elusive as that of the Loch Ness Monster. Somewhere in my stash are the Otaki kit with resin gull wing aftermarket fix that is somewhat OBE.
  5. I've read the Hasegawa 1/48 Spitfires are too short. More recently, I read a review that suggested only the later Hasegawa Spitfires were too short, specifically the Mk VIII and Mk IX. So are the Mk Vb and Vb Trop kits the right length? I already have the Hasegawa kits and would rather not invest in the Tamiya kits if the Hasegawa kits are basically correct dimensionally/proportionally. I read up on Spitfires on the Wiki page and it says the early planes were 2 feet shorter than the later Marks. Thanks. Sorry to be so basic. I'm a bit late to the Spitfire game.
