Hi, This one will be part of my project to build at least one Spitfire representing each year from 1938 to 1945. I'll use the Eduard dual combo to build a model of a No19 Sqn Spitfire from the late summer of 1938. I'm going to deviate from Eduard's decal option (K9795). I'll build this as K9789, the very first one delivered to No 19 Sqn. Cheers, Stefan.
Howdy all, The post man just delivered this from those good old boys in the Czech Republic. A while back Eduard launched a limited edition dual combo for their new Spitfire, to commemorate the anniversary of the Czechoslovak fighter squadrons returning home from the United Kingdom on August 13, 1945. The kit was also offered on its own or with this nifty reproduction of a RAF kit bag which I did not need, but defiantly wanted. The bag is of very good quality and will be well used for hauling stuff. The box is fairly large and has some great artwork showing two clipped winged spitfires I am not going to review the kit as its your standard Eduard Spitfire Mk.IXc, and there are better reviews out there that I could possibly do. I thought however I would show you what's different about the kit. The kit, being a dual combo comes with two kits, duh. Two sets of masks, two sets of stencils and two sets of Eduard's Brassin parts. There are the one set of 4 spoke tread and two sets 5 spoke smooth wheels, along with two 90 gal sipper tanks. You get some nice photo-etch for the cockpit and then you get these! Decals for no less than 39 options! So many they need their own booklet that's 3 times thicker than the instructions. Here are just 4 of the options available. Between this and the royal class i have enough to do a squadron :-) The kit also come with a commemorative postcard, and envelope with a stamp that the Check post office designed for the anniversary. There a a couple of reasons I got this, one the gobs of decals to keep me happy with Spitfire choices till the cows come home. Two the neat kit bag, but most of all, a portion of the sales will go to the Czech veterans association, so it my way of saying thank you for those that helped to defended a country that was not their own. Overall a nice set, yes maybe more than you could have gotten it separately, but then thats the point of a Limited Edition, its limited. Can't wait to get started, but which of the 39, or the 12 from the royal class do i go with...... I think i need some overtrees. Thanks for looking.
