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.

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.

This was a christmas present from my daughter. The engraving on the kit is top notch showing the flaps, air intake, cartridge disposal et al. Really simple to make (done and painted in a day) but well-designed to the level of a much more expensive kit. The only slight downer is all the detail going into the cockpit which is then all covered over, but take a few pictures of it and you have something to remember it by. Really impressive model.

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!!

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!

Airfix have produced an excellent product here. The cockpit detail is awesome. Panel details also good. Had some minor trimming to get the pilot to fit. All told excellent.

I had an old Frog model of this plane. The model wasn't as good but the under carriage was retractable which pleased me greatly as a small boy.
