Big Bird - Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk.Vb

Postby Georgeconna » Mon Sep 03, 2018 12:03 am

Hi M8's

Decided to get this one out earlier on in the years as my RAF 100 solo group Build. This is the very old offering from Airfix. Picked this up in the UK for about 15 notes. The prices in the shops are so not worth the asking price. simple enough build. Major fit problems on the Removable Cowls, these had to be thinnned down to wafer thin in order for them to fit. Movable under carriage and control Surfaces too. If you are inclined to super detail these are perfect for that. Me being lazy did not go down that route so this wont win any medals for sure :) I have a second one on the go now a Mk.1 but I am after loosing part of the Gazing so that is halted for a bit.

heres some pics.

The dogs danglies man! Very impressive model and suitably dusty for desert ops. Great job on the camo and weathering. The panel popped off is a nice touch too.

Hopefully the Mk.1 will get the spares sorted to finish her off.
