Here we have the new tool Airfix Spitfire mk 22 in 1/72 scal The top opening box has a very nice rendition of the mk22 spit and as usual has the decal options on the side . The bottom tray has a series of building tips ,useful for younger or new modellers and the whole box has a real quality feel to it. On to the kit , there are 45 parts on 3 sprues of soft grey plastic and four clear parts.The instructions are the standard exploded diagram and an excellent four view colour diagram for both the decal options -a silver machine and a camouflaged example that took part in the cooper trophy air race .Panel lines are engraved and the exterior detail looks very comprehensive . The cockpit is very well represented and has seperate bulkheads and floor ,and raised detail on the sidewalls , the instrument panel being provided as a decal.Other nice touches include detail on the radiator faces ,in the wheel wells , and weighted tyres with a shaped attachment hole to ensure correct placement.The transparencies are very good, being crystal clear and having optional rear sections ,for open or closed . The decals are in perfect register with good colour density and full stencilling .This looks like a very nice kit and hopefully will build as good as it looks . Price £7.50 from scale models shop (other shops are available, but to be honest arent a patch on John!!) ,a lot of quality for a small price . well done Airfix keep it up!
