Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX

Airfix 1/72

This was a very nice kit. Not quite up to the standard of the Hurricane IIc kit, but nearly there. A few minor fit issues such as the rear of the wing roots, but nothing that couldn't be sorted without too much trouble. It's a nice scheme and the decals were very good. I was rather doubtful of a good outcome with this model after twice attempting to build the Airfix Mk1 Spitfire (series 1) and giving up in frustration. this was a breath of fresh air and very enjoyable to build.
