ACHTUNG SPITFIRE! Last Christmas I bought this kit and I was really looking forward to builded immediately... But it did not come up to my desk until now. I have nothing to say just that this kit is absolutelly brilliant and I have never seen anything better than this. The construction is always thinking one step forward and the parts fit 100%. Just an amazing job from Tamiya, you are advanced as no one is. But I will stop praising now. I fell in love with the coloured photos and this one convinced me to make this particular Spitfire K9955: (Colourised by Doug) from Facebook The description says: "RAF Fitters working on a Spitfire Mk I (possibly code LO-O K9955) of 'B' Flight, No. 602 (City of Glasgow) Squadron at Drem in East Lothian, Scotland. March 1940" Two years ago, I was in Scotland, East Lothian at the East Fortune airfield and museum which is very close to the former Drem airfield. The second reason why I chose this marking is the Scottish emblem from the Scottish pilot. I found decals from the Fündecals and ordered them immediatelly (what a luck!). And now to the model. I have worked on the cockpit using all the accesible photos of the early Spitfires to make the most realistic representation of this Spitfire. Look what I have done: Thanks for watching and good luck with your builds! Cheers, Andrew S.
Hello, here's Eduard's brand new 1/72 Spitfire IXc. This ain't no 'shake-and-bake' kit as I discovered. Just like with their 1/72 Fw-190, tolerances are about zero. I had hard times getting the cockpit to fit (it seems as if I've placed it about one milimeter too far forward) and even more trouble with adding the wings. This was, of course, all due to my own. The next one will turn out smoother I hope .... So here is MH712, flown by W/O Henryk Dygala, No. 302 Squadron, Summer / Autumn 1944. It's one of the few Spitfire kits that has bombs under the wings. Just had to add them. The model was painted with Mr.Hobby acrylics. Decals out of the box. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel of IGM Cars & Bikes. Thanks for your interest. Best wishes from Vienna, Austria Roman
