1/48 Airfix Spitfire Mk I - 303 Squadron

2 posts in this topic

Just finished an Airfix Spitfire Mk I in 1/48 scale. I used aftermarket decals to represent a spitfire flown in the 303 Squadron. This is the squadron flown by Polish pilots during the battle of Britain.
This is my first time doing an Airfix kit in many, many years and I must say I was impressed with the detail and fit. Aside from some minor filling at the wing roots, everything lined up extremely well.
The gray recommended in the decal book appears darker on the model than in the pictorial in the book but I am still happy with the end result.
