    One of the Spits that britains gave us to rebuilt our destroyed Air Force.
    This is from 51° Gruppo, 1946

    Nice one! The kit certainly is a great improvement on their original MkIX, from the late 1950s - looks good in those colours too.

    Nicely done. Not your fault but I think Airfix lose marks with their overdone recessed panel lines.

    Not bad at all, agree with Andy on the panel lines though...
