    This is the largest model plane that I have attempted.The engine is a bit tricky to fit when completed, but can be done .The aluminium paint supplied is a bit streaky other colours ok.Some of the instructions are a bit vague .Some slight modifications are needed but can be done quite easily if you have modelled before.I am threequarters through the build and I am impressed with the detail.Cannot foresee any real probs with what I have left to do.

    I bought this when it was selling for a knock down £19 and I can say for that money it was a bargain. Never having built or even seen a 1:24 scale spitfire, I can say it is impressive in scale and detail. Cockpit detail is extensive, but maybe not up to today's standards as this is basically the old Airfix with newer parts added to upgrade it to the Mk Vb. The flaps work, the landing gear retracts and there is enough room to build some lights into this too.

    This version comes with paints, that I always say are only fit for the bin, so buy some Humbrol enamel for this. The decal sheet is huge, markings are huge too for this bird. There is quite a lot of plastic flash present on this one of mine that will need trimming, and I have heard of some fit issues with the fuselage and wings. But them, this is maybe a 50 year old base kit so it is not going to be up to Trumpeter or Tamiya standards is it?

    Oh and this is not the version with propeller motor provided, you will have too source one of those from else where. Photo etch sets and detail up items are available, and I would think that a nice new pilot figure would set this splendid bird off if placed in a diorama setting.

    Any model of a spitfire is a good thing, so go and get one to pay homage and respect to the few!

    Received the model one day late,that was fine but the kit itself is fantastic, it's huge with a mighty wingspan and all the details are there, machineguns, cockpit engine etc. I painted mine with d-day stripes and it looks fantastic a must have for any ww2/aircraft model nut.

    Ive just got into modeling and bought this kit as ive never done a 1/24 scale before ,there are a few pros and cons though ,pros ,the size is impresive and when finished it does look the part and comes with a pilot and stand .because its large i also lit the cockpit and navlights and managed to run fibreoptic to the wing tip lights with a little dremmeling and drilling,i used the paints provided but they really do need a good mix for at least a minute, the grey and green for the camo in my kit was a bit gloopy and thick and may need thinning to avoid brushstrokes (i used a little water to do this as there acrylic not enamel) and did 2 thin coats but you get 2 pots of these colours and 2 pots for the underside colour.

    would recomend using an undercoat for this kit as the paint seems to go on much better.i just used a grey car primer- 2 light coats (halfords or carplan) i have used and none of these react with the plastic .they both say acrylic on the back !!!wouldnt use any coloured car paints as these might melt the plastic

    cons!!!!
    OK dunno if this was just my kit and have read on here and elsewhere that the tooling is from the 70s .There was flash on every single piece (thats around 200 pcs) ,some was that bad you even end up cutting your pieces short as you cant tell where the piece ends or flash begins so have a good supply of exacto blades and sandpaper handy if youre kit was like mine!!!

    I've been building models for a good few years and I finally decided to try something a Bit more adventurous. Opening the kit and seeing the parts was staggering. The detail is very good for the a kit that didn't benefit from airfix's "new tooling", there is a lot of detail under the surface so one has to choose between focusing on the exterior or the interior. On most areas a choice doesn't need to be made. The main one is if you want to install the airfix working engine into the model. This is actually an amazon add on and I wish I had done it before. It isn't hard to install as I looked at the details. Along the way when installing the engine pice in the model your given the choice to put in a different piece to mount the engine. If properly assembled this makes the propeller spin, not that fast but very cool. I plan to use this to encorpoate realism into a future kit with some model lighting conversions kits slapped on. The instructions are easy to follow and the cockpit is very detailed with the addiction of a cool pilot. A very good kit for more experienced modellers. I didnt really see the point of paints as someone who uses the paints is probably not experienced enougth to makes this model worth it. I went for the one without the paints because the model is actually no different. You may want to consider after market decals if you want something that's not RAF but you can easily stick with the base model. A great kit for a medium level of experience.
