  2. Hey all, Well, I'm a few weeks into my first semester at Uni and yesterday I decided to take a trip home to pick up my modelling stuff. I'm fortunate as I'm living in uni accommodation, but off campus, so it isn't busy here at all and there are only 3 people (myself included) in my flat Anyway, enough of that; I decided to get hold of Special Hobby's 1/72 Spitfire 24 "The Last of The Best". I'm doing it in wrap around camo with C type roundels. My thanks to TonyOT who kindly supplied me with some reference images for this build (and possible future Spitfire XIV builds ) This airframe served with 80sqn BAFO until 80sqn became the last Spitfire squadron to leave Germany in the late 40's. The Spitfire F24 doesn't really have any significant achievements to it's name (unlike the previous wartime marks), in fact, the F24 was only ordered to prevent a sudden collapse of the British aerospace industry during the austerity post war. Jet technology was only just developing and the tried and tested Spitfire was used as a stop gap until the performance of jets was significantly better. That said, the F.24 did have the honour of being the last combat Spitfire in Germany (the XIX may have been there longer...). This kit also finishes my Griffon Spitfire collection, the previous being my Spitfire XIV 41 sqn diorama and the Spitfire XIX "Spy in The Sky". I'm actually already half way through the build as I wanted to get stuck in without worrying about being sucked into the abyss by you lot! I'll be quiet now and show how far I have got. The cockpit detail is really nice, the sidewalls look appropriately busy, I added some Tamiya Tape belts and I will soon add a bit of clear plastic for the funsight. As I said in the title, I'm back!
