1/48 Preserved Spitfires

Post by DerekF »

My latest additions to my 1/48 Spitfire collection (Nos 54 and 55).

Firstly the new Tamiya Mk.I. A fantastic kit with superb fit and detail. Finished with Hataka paints, and the kit decals as N3200/G-CFGJ. If you only build one Spitfire model in your life, make this one.

Next is the Airfix Mk.Vb. Again another superb kit, probably the best Airfix Spitfire. Again finished with Hataka paints as JH-C BM597/G-MKVB.

Hello Derek
Just noticed your latest Spitfires, you must be able to build them without looking at any instructions... excellent build as expected. G-ALGT sometime?

Another vote for G-ALGT! If Dad says, you know you have to get it done! :cool:

Love the handle by the way!
