1. The instructions don't make it that clear that you should paint the parts as you're assembling the model.
2. We managed to overlook the fact that there are detailed instructions on the back of the box for the painting.
3. A sharpened matchstick was very useful for applying glue to some of the finer areas.
Overall my son was delighted with it,and it was a pleasure to spend a couple of hours helping him put it together.
I can't recommend this kit highly enough, especially as it includes everything you need for less than a tenner.
Btw use some spirit vinegar to soften the decals once they've been applied; it'll let them cling to the surface detail rather than covering it up.
But I was wrong.
This is the new re-tooled Spitfire, and features a vastly imploved cockpit set up, instument panel, chair and internal cockpit wall details, panel lines that are indented and more up to date and comprehensive decal sheet, even the canopy has been improved to be more accurate. Sadly, the same awful paints are still being supplied with these kits, please, don not use them, go and buy the same colour number in Humbrol oils instead, the finish will be much better.
A real improvement on the original kit that I have previously reviewed, and hopefully better in fit as I have yet to build this version. A can recommend this version of the MKIa that is distinguished by this particular box art.
It's a lot harder than I recall, but that's not to say it actually is hard. It was simple enough to follow the instructions, and it is best to paint parts before you construct them - which can make it very time-consuming, especially as I was hoping to make my return to the modelling world a glorious example of how it should be done.
I have to say, my attempt is not a showroom example, but that is not down to the model kit.
Everything that should have been in there, was there, and there was ample glue and paint to complete the task.
I would advise (and will do next time) that you buy an undercoating spray, as the paints can go a little thin at times, and perhaps buy a very fine brush for things like the pilot and landing gear.
I will be buying another one and trying again though!
The reason why I gave this item five stars is because when it was fully assembled and painted it, and it looked so good and life-like.
I would recommend this Spitfire to anybody who loves building them and has many hours of fun. I loved building this kit and I had many hours of fun.
Thanks to the seller who sold me this kit.
Just watch the price, I paid just under 5 pounds 50 pence in November 2015, and now its almost full price again.
