1:48 Kit Preview Tamiya YouTube


Tamiya 1:48 Spitfire and other nonsense...

This is a slightly extended film (which is why it’s taken so long to sort out today!) that deals with SMW and then Tamiya’s new 1/48 Spitfire Mk.I. I hope you like it and if you do, let your friends know about it!

I hope you enjoy it…

I'm formerly the editor in charge of Military In Scale magazine and latterly, Model Airplane International. Editing duties to one side, I'm now a full-time modelmaker with Doolittle Media, working to supply modelling articles and material for a number of their group titles, including MAI and Tamiya Model Magazine International. I'm also an avid fan of Assassin's creed, Coventry City FC and when the mood takes me, a drummer of only passing skill. Here though, you'll find what I do best: build models and occassionally, write about them!

    Between your vid and Brett’s you’re leaving no choice to me but to spend more money to build another superlative Tamiya kit. Silly question: is it possible that Tamiya is re-booting it’s entire 1/48 A/C range? A6M5 was all new, now the Spit. Is there any reason to think that they may new tool the entire range or the most popular aircraft in that range? For instance, will we get a new P-51 B with an accurate cockpit? Might we see a new D model with wings that don’t require filling and have accurate wheel wells? If they release a new tool Brewster Buffalo, Ki 84 Frank or Zero with floats I think we will have our answer.

    Will you do a Spitfire book? Just asking. This kit, Eduard’s Mk. 16, Airfix’ Mk 19 would all be great subjects.

    Hi Spence,

    Great to see you back! Glad that you enjoyed SMW and thanks for the info. A 0/400 is eagerly awaited.
