    Hi to all

    one more model, which was almost abounded in the past finally finished.
    Heller vintage Spitfire Mk XVIe can not be assumed at all as the best on the market, but i think even i have in stash better looking AZ and Sword models, this small guy deserve its place.
    So it took almost 5 years from start to end.....What was done, engraved some panels (too deep as few years ago i did not know to do better, added details in cockpit, humbrol colors, artistic oil wash (kept at minimal level), gunze satin final coat....and that is it.
    I hope you like this old boy.

    As always all critics welcomed. Best regards.......and now pictures
