Hi Folks!

 

Here is my GB entry, Revell's 1/32 Spitfire Mk IXC which i will be doing with AM decals for Pierre Closterman's aircraft, while he was in 602 (City of Glasgow) squadron in June/July 1944.

 

I have got some masks for the canopy, Etch belts for the seat, but apart from that it will be OOTB.

 

I've been looking for a good reason to build this kit for a while, and this GB looks to be the prefect excuse. I chose the markings as Closterman is French, and it seems apt that there is a French connection with the D-Day Landings, also 602 Squadron as they were based at Drem in East Lothian close to where i used to live. 

 

At the moment i am reading a book about the Squadron "Lions Rampant - the story of 602 Squadron" which inspired the title for my thread.

 

TFL CHEERS, Greg

Thanks Valkyrie & Stix 👍

 

following my latest build in 1/72 I'm looking forward to a build with bigger parts to give my eyes a rest 😵

 

Cheers Greg

Good choice Greg , You'll be very pleased to hear those canopy  paint masks you've got are the dogs, I've just used some on a fly 32nd hurricane, they fitted absolutely perfectly, nice kit the mk9, bargain priced aswell,
