    Hi all,

    I'm Chris, from the UK. I have been interested in WW2 fighters on and off through out my life. I'm especially interested in the Spitfire and the history of Southampton and the Supermarine works. I also like German WW2 fighters. Anybody else into the history of Supermarine works and the Spitfire etc? I am also thinking of dabbling and having a go at model making and trying to make my first one, yes a Spitfire! Many thanks for the warm welcome.

    Hi Chris
    Welcome to the site.Modelling is a great hobby so good luck in trying to make a spitfire.You might want to try your local library or council offices to see if theres a modeling club in the area ,there usualy is one around.They are very friendly and are great for getting tips for building.
