Yet Another Big Build - Airfix 1:24th Scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk. VB Tropical

Posted by toboldlygo , 13 January 2018 · 390 views

While building the mighty Typhoon last year, on a whim I acquired the 1/24th Scale Spitfire VB Trop on a certain auction site...

 

It went into my stash of kits, until the beginning of the month - when I plucked up the courage to start building it.

 

Compared to the Typhoon, this is a far more basic kit - however it has certainly proved itself to be a challenging build, due to the age of the tooling.

 

The Merlin 45/46 engine a far more basic build compared to the Typhoon (and to the Mosquito that I have in my stash)

The fuselage is quite a challenge, as it requires a great deal of patience and a great deal of fettling to get everything to fit...

Finally ready for the Merlin to be installed

Not quite enough photo's for the next instalment, as I have another Merchant Navy on the Workbench

Wonder if I'll get my free Daily Mail one built, we shall see!
