4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good New Tool From Airfix 28 Feb 2013
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Unfortunately for the previous reveiwer, his model was incomplete but I'm sure Airfix would be happy to fix the situation.

Like other recent Airfix new tooling kits, this is accurate in appearance, easily assembled, much cheaper than the competition and has good detail. It's a very good kit, especially for the modest damage to the wallet. It's as good as the Tamiya but much cheaper.

There is one decal option, for the well known DW-K, but there are many more decals available from specialist hobby shops. NB Be careful when purchasing as the older Aifrix Mk 1a is still around; although it is a nice kit this new issue is a great improvement.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Spitfire in this scale. 27 April 2014
Verified Purchase
A new tooled kit from Airfix, and what a kit it is.

A new cockpit set up with great detail, new surface detail with engraved panel lines, better detailed landing gear and even and updated Cartograh decal sheet. I have yet to build her but from reports from other builders the parts fit is out of this world.

Thanks to Airfix for a super new kit!!

5.0 out of 5 stars very very good kit 15 Mar 2014

Decals and interior are very nice, but even for a 1:72 scale, the plastic brackets have so much detail!!
it's a very good kit and besides, you can never have too many spitfires!

5.0 out of 5 stars A very easy but rewarding build. 26 July 2013

Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A beautifully rendered model, head and shoulders better than previous offerings of the 1/72 Spitfire from Airfix.

A highly detailed cockpit that cannot be appreciated once the model is completed (especially if the pilot is seated therein).

A special mention to be made is that the parts are secure on the spruce and need to be carefully cut off, but with a sharp modeller's knife the task is easy and once off the pieces go together really well.

There is very little spew so the new tooling works well.

In conclusion, this is a very easy but rewarding build.
