Spitfire MK XII - Airfix 1/48

For the first time in more than 25 years I've built an 1/48th scale model.

This was a Kris-Kringle present and I decided to build it despite not being my preferred scale.

So here we go! This new tooling Airfix kit is really very nicely done, excellent details and fine and crisp engraved panel lines. Also the fit is just perfect and I haven't use putty at all.

The decals has two options and I decided to do one flown by South Australian RAAF Flight Lieutnant Donald Smith. Don Smith was the Squadron Leader and it was his personal aircraft.
