Nice progress Pete, wish they made these in 1/87 scale.
Cheers, Rick H.

Finished! Let down by my inept masking and painting, but not too bad:

I did try to make some gun patches, from painted masking tape, but they were just too small to stick, so I gave up! Here it is with the Part 1 'straight from the box' build:

And finally, both Airfix kits alongside an Eduard Profipack that costs three times as much:

Thanks for looking in.

Excellent result(s) Pete.
Apart from having to put up with a bit of silvering in part 1(As we all did!), both your Spitfires look great.

Very well done.

Hi Peter
Very nice result. Paint on part 2 looks smoother and the decals have definitely gone on better. Well done.

Thanks folks! I think before I consign Part 1 to the attic I'll try a couple of doses of Microsol and a waft of matt Galeria on it.
