    I recommend the 1/48 Tamiya Mk.V or Mk.I these are simple kits to build and have good detail.

    My first was the P-40....it would've been a nice easy kit but I got too ahead of myself.

    I showed you yesterday Andy didn't I?

    Did great on that one H! My first after 20+ plus years was the Tamiya Fw 109D-9, so their Spitfire should be a good place to start!
