No story on modelling this aircraft would be complete without a 1:72 Airfix Spitfire.
Well, after a few hours of work today, my Aldi Special, £4.99, Airfix Spitfire Mk.I is complete and ready for inclusion in my Spitfire book. No story on modelling this aircraft would be complete without a 1:72 Airfix Spitfire, so I was more than happy to build this one and as it turned out, I rather enjoyed this little fella, the project really reminding me of kits that I’d built as a kit, sat at the kitchen table on a Sunday afternoon…
So this will be one of two 1:72 builds that have been completed for my new modelling title (now sold out) the second being an Eduard Spitfire Mk.IX built by my good friend Drewe Manton. With a bit of luck the book will be designed before Christmas and then printed in January ready to be sent out to those that have pre-ordered it.
