Airfix's 1/72 E.E. Lightning F.2A is available online from Squadron
IHere is my second completion for 2014 - the 1/72 scale Airfix Lightning F.2A. You can find Mark Davies detailed in-box review of this kit by following this link.
This is a really nice kit with genuinely fine crisp surface detail, good fit, and a high level of accuracy.
I finished the model in wheels up configuration so that I could display it on an Airfix stand (available separately). Decals are from Xtradecal (Item No. X72088, and fantastic as usual) but the model is otherwise pretty much straight from the box. I did, however, replace the pitot with a piece of alloy wire as I broke the plastic part off its base.
I have written this one up for Issue 35 of Military Illustrated Modeller.
Hope you'll like it!
