This is the Italari Version of the Spitfire i built for a buddy of mine.  This kit was an absolute nightmare as for as fitment is concernd.  I dont thik i will build another one from this company but it didnt turn out too bad.  I will have finished pictures soon.

Nicely done. Spitfires are definitely not the easiest to camouflage!

Looking good for a difficult kit. I had the same one and binned it as it was just not worth my sanity.


Dont write off Italeri, the have some very nice kits indeed.

And here she is all finished.  This one was a challenge. Maybe their larger scale kits have better fitment.  I will try
