JeroenS Posted August 4, 2020 Share Posted August 4, 2020 Hi all, I'm used to buliding things that stay firmly on the ground, but I recently made an exception for a rather iconic aircraft. I built this for the recent Spitfire GB and although there are a few pics in the gallery there it wasn't 100% finished. For one thing, it still needed a flat coat and I also wanted to rig the antennae. This was the first aircraft I ever built, not counting the ones I built 40 years ago which always fell apart rather quickly and didn't have a spot of paint on them. So, although I don't build aircraft I do like to read about them, and having just finished The Big Show a while back I thought that would be a good reason to join the Spitfire GB and have a go at one. I chose this Tamiya kit because I suspected it would give me a hassle free experience and it did. The kit almost builds itself. I had fun building it, but if I ever build another one it will not have a camo scheme! The masking... wow. Anyway, I'll confess to now having put a 1/24 scale Spit on my wishlist OK so here are some pictures of the completed Spitfire. Knowing next to nothing about building aircraft I just followed the numbers as well as I could, only thing I added are the antennae which I rigged up from EZ-Line. . You can build three versions from the kit, I chose the "A" version which is P9495 DW-K No. 610 Squadron, Battle of Britain, 1940.
