Description

 

Here is my 1/48 scale Airfix Spitfire Mk.24. This model was built with some minor modifications:

  • Seat sides were thinned and grab handles drilled

  • Seat back cushion made from stips of plastic card

  • Seatblets made from lead foil and wire

  • Cannon barrels were drilled

  • Exhaust stubs were drilled

  • Radiators altered from a trapezoidal cross section to rectangular

  • Falcon Vacuform canopy used

  • Whip canopy made from fishing line

Aeromaster decals were used for the markings.
