    Airfix Future Spitfires

    Never thought of that until you mentioned yet.

    Having not completed a group build, I am going to give this one a go with a Bearcat in 1/48th using the Hobbyboss kit.

    Not much more left is there? PRXI? mkVI/VII?

    Airfix Future Spitfires

    I think that Airfix dedicating time and money to a MkVIII/IX/XVI would be a waste of time and effort considering the quality of Eduards? A high back XIV and FR18 would be good as well as a Vc. but what concerns me is that I didn't get on with Airfix`s new tool Vb. Maybe it was just me but I found it frustrating! Hopefully the XIV wont have those stupid 2 part U/C legs?
  5. Your Dads choice to airbrush the white and mask for the red is the sensible and obvious option. Appplying those decals and getting a good finish and paint match would prove to be difficult.
  6. Thanks for the links. I didn’t realise that a lot of the Cutting Edge Decals were still available.
  7. Looking like a great project. Always fancied doing a Swiss 109 but that Cutting Edge sheet is rarer than Hen’s teeth.
  8. Haven’t done much modelling in the past couple of weeks, but managed to mask up for the theatre markings and canopy on the Airfix 109 this evening. Quite happy with my slow progress but I notice on the photos that the nose masking needs some more work. Photos never lie. Thanks for looking. Grahame
  9. Great progress on this Eduard P-39. This kit was one of the first of those kits that blew me away when it first came out.
  10. Great looking Spitfire. never seen that scheme before this thread had started. Well done.

    Remember building this a very long time ago and the experience was very good. Well moulded too.

    if you need any decals for the Canadian Sea Fury let me know as I have this decal sheet and will never use all of the subject matter! www.fundekals.com/seaFury.html Regards Grahame
