One more ticked off my bucket list........,
This review is from: Airfix 1:24 Scale Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Supermarine Spitfire MkVb WWII Aircraft Gift Set with Paints, Glue and Brushes (Toy)
When I was a young boy I loved to make all kinds of model kits. I had loads of cars, planes & boats. I even made Revells version of the HMS Victory complete with scale miles of rigging & sails, very hard work for a young lad. Anyway, the kit I always wanted to have was this 1/24 scale airfix Spitfire, but for some reason I never got around to buying it or receiving it as a gift.
On a recent trip to the UK I decided it was about time I bought an example of this kit & this edition is an excellent choice. The inclusion of all the paints & some quality cement means everything you need to produce a professional result is in the kit. I know it's a bit childish for a 42 year old man to be making something like this, but at least this one won't suffer the fate of my childhood models, most got broken & shot down in flames!
