Can you have too many Spitfires? The conventional wisdom is no, but I wonder… Since returning to modelling I have built 1/72 Spitfires from AZ, Airfix, Eduard, KP, Revell and Frog, four of them already this year (out of eight completions in 2018 so far). There are three needing MU attention for Cat C repair: 2x Airfix 1x Revell The stash contains quite a few just in 1/72: 1x Academy 17x Airfix 2x Aeroclub conversion fuselages (okay that knocks out two of the others in theory) 5x AZ 10x Eduard 3x Heller 5x KP 1x Frog 1x Fujimi 1x Hasegawa 1x Italeri 1x Matchbox 2x Sword 1x Xtrakits But there’s also a few in 1/48 – 3x Eduard & 1x Academy; 1/32 - 2x Revell and 1/24 - 1x Airfix. And an Eduard 1/144 one in a Czech Air Force group set! That’s several squadrons worth in all. Technically not part of the Spitfire stash are Seafires in 1/32 and 1/48 as well as a 1/72 Seafang. At this year’s (relatively high) build rate that’s 12 or so years supply of just Spitfires or 4 – 5 years if I just devote to the one plane! Actually that doesn’t sound so bad? And when I returned I thought my favourite WW2 fighter was the P-40! Obviously not as there’s only two built and four more in the stash… “Hi, My name’s Will and I’m a Spitfire addict” Cheers Will
