bigbadbadge Posted August 13, 2022 Share Posted August 13, 2022 Hi all Not done a new thread for ages as been concentrating on the FAA thread for last 2 yrs or so. When @mark.au started building his Mk.XIV . It got me hankering to build another Spitfire and so as ee sre foing with our Swordfish models to replicate doffrrnt Swordfish used in the Taranto raid in a sort of unofficial GB, i asked if i voukd join with a Spitfire too. Now i don't have a great travk record for completing GB models as still doing my 32nd Sea Venom and that GB finished in June!!! But fired up with enthusiasm i have tried to crack on with the Swordfish and this one and hopefully will finish both in good time. This build is the Airfix 48th scale kit and haveto say it looks absolutely lurvley. I will be adding a replacement Propeller or might file the blades to a better shape, not sure yet, I will add some Eduard Seat belts too. Otherwise this will be as Airfix intended. I am doing the RCAF option in the kit, serial NH902, VC-P, flown by Sqn Leader James Bernard Prenergast , No 414 Sqn RCAFin Luneberg Germany May-June 1945. I do have the Xtradecal sheet , but will use on another high back that I will partially re do and a Mk.XVIII when it arrives. The kit, so far has gone together very well and fit has been perfect. Pleased so far Thanks for looking in Chris 19 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
