Hope you like it!! Cheers




PS: It's missing the yellow tips on the blades. I'm waiting a new humbrol 154 :D

That's a really tidy job on that, you've got a good looking Spitfire XIV on your shelf now. :)

While there are some prominent shape errors with the Academy kit, it still looks very much like a Mk XIV when built up and painted nicely, like yours!


Is the prop built up of individual blades? They seem to be angled the wrong way, similar to Merlin engined Spits. The prop should rotate counter-clockwise, as viewed from the cockpit…


Nice work overall!


Kind regards,
