|Subject: Trumpeter Spitfire Mk Vb Thu May 30 2013, 14:42|| |
This 24 scale Trumpeter kit is a consignment build for a friend of Matt's, it has been extensively enhanced in both the engine and cockpit, the basic engine required all the plumbing lines, wire looms and control rods, the basic cockpit layout was enhanced in both basic detail and addition enhancements, the camouflage scheme is all Model Master enamels, the decals are from the kit, with exception of the upper wing roundels, the Sqn and Aircraft code are fictional additions, the serial number is true for a converted Mk IIb Spitfire to Mk V specs. The harness is made from masking tape and there is no bullet proof windscreen on this aircraft.Note:- These large scale kits need care and a lot of time to complete.Apart from a few touch ups, adding some minor parts and a major re fit of the Yellow Fighter ID leading wing marking, which has been painted onto the model subject, the model maybe part of the Club Display at Expo.
When you go home tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow we gave our today.
Those that never learn from history will always repeat it.
