The one week Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Charity build FINISHED

Recommended Posts

Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk1a

https://www.justgiving.com/DaisyThorne/

Well its finally done. Its taken 1 weeks and more hours than i can count.

The challenge was to get sponsored to build the kit in 1 week and then auction it off. All of the monies goes to little Havens.

This was also built in Memory of our little 3 year old Daughter Daisy who tragically died on 14/02/14.

I always new that there was a really nice kit of a Spitfire hiding in that Airfix box. With the kind donations from Airscale , John Dutfield model railways in Chelmsford , Grey matter Figures , and Dave T. This has been a slog that has mentally drained me. I found myself starting everyday at about 8am and working on until about 4pm every day. The kit went together OK and with a bit of scraping , filling , sanding , and swearing it worked out. I made a spar for the wings to get the correct dihedral. The gun covers and side panel are removeable. I wont waffle on any longer other than to say ,

" Daddy finished it my little Angel , for you and your little Boys and Girls".

Just an outstanding effort for a great cause. Sure hope it sold for a record amount.

That's a really nice build for a very worthy cause. Well done.

On a lighter note, the 70's called. They want their carpet back! :woot.gif:

Nice job.

That is certainly worthy of record bids, and the cause makes it even more so...I hope you get into the 5/6 figure range.
