    Category: Intermediate
    Kit: Airfix
    Model: Spitfire Mk.lXc/XIVe modified to a Spitfire FR.lX
    Aftermarket: LionRoar seatbelts and bits of plastic. Scrounge up some letters and numbers.

    Yet another model that fought me to the end, but, when all is said and done, these group build have persuaded me to finish a difficult model instead of putting it back in the box.
