5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Kit, Very Good Spitfire VB, 16 Mar. 2013
This review is from: TAMIYA Aircraft Kit 1:48 61035 Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop. (Toy)
As with all Tamiya kits, this VB Trop is beautifully moulded, with no sink marks, lovely details such as cockpit and wheel wells, and fits together extreme;y well without the need for much filler. Panel lines are beautifully done.

There are options for the Vokes or Aboukir filters, cockpit glass etc and there are two decals options for North African Spitfires.

The decals are a bit on the thick side but there are many after market products readily available.

While this is a lovely model, it doesn't quite capture the curve of the wing/fuselage join as well as the venerable Airfix kit, which a shame as it really is the only thing wrong with this model; I'm being picky but the curves are the essence of this beautful aircraft.

In comparison with other 1/48 scale Spitfire Vs, this is far more detailed than the Airfix (but more expensive) looks 'more right' than the Hasegawa in the fuselage and easier to assemble than the Special Hobby.

Recommended.
