Yet Another Big Build - Airfix 1:24th Scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk. VB Tropical
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...
(Spot the spoiler)
Finally ready for the Merlin to be installed
Until part 2
