Jan Zumbach, the famous Polish Battle of Britain fighter ace flew EN951 303 Sqn from late September 1941. Earlier in the year Jan was posted back to 303 as a Flight Commander and only two months later he was promoted to Squadron Leader and appointed to command the Squadron, a duty he performed from May until December 1942. This gift set includes glue (Humbrol Precision Poly Cement), paint brushes, 12 Humbrol acrylic paints .

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!
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
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!!!Read more ›
