Airfix 1:72 Scale Spitfire

Another impulse buy today, my local 'the works' shop had a big pile of airfix kits, and I couldn't resist buying one.  I went for the Spitfire.  I've built an airfix spitfire before, but it was nearly two decades ago and no longer exists.  This isn't actually the kit I remember, the moulding is much crisper and there are a couple of differences in the build.  I've painted it as per the box mainly using the paints that came with it and attached it to a spare games workshop flying base.

Looking a bit dull without transfers

A big improvement

Next to a WWI Sopwith Camel in the same scale, the difference in power 20 years made is obvious.


  1. Wow, that brings back memories. I had one of these hanging from my bedroom ceiling as a child. Lovely model Kieth. Thanks for posting.

  2. I had one hanging too, not entirely sure what happened to the airfix stuff I made as a kid

  3. Kewl model, man.

    On a side note I linked to your blog for the pic for the purpose of supporting a bit.

    As per blog courtesy—not that you will probably see this since this is against a post a near year ago—here is the link.

    Thanks, again!

    PS We bought Talisman last year. I got theWife a paint set from the local Warhammer shop so she can paint the figs. Given her anal attention to detail I suspect the jobs will be a good one.
