Trumpeter 1/24 Spitfire Vb
Posted by Theuns on Wednesday, November 25, 2020 1:41 AM

This kit I built for a mate to go with the 1/24 Airfix Hurricaine.

There are some scale issues with this kit that have been well documented so I will not bore you with the details.

 

In this kit th decals were close to useless, they shattered in the water, thoes that I did get on in one piece the flim was so hard that no microsol or even MEK could make it seat nicely.

Humbrol paints all over.

Wow is that a Polish flown Spit?  Wasn't aware of those - Hurricanes of course but  Spits?  Cool.  Very nice job as usual my friend.

Thanks,

John

Polish pilots were amoungst the best in the RAF through the war. They made a huge contribution to fighter command.
