Tamiya's all-new 1/48 scale
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I
Completed and Painted

by Brett Green

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I

Meng's 1/48 scale F-35A Lightning II is available online from Squadron for USD$59.99




I have just finished my first Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk.I. What a wonderful building experience. 



I built this one straight from the box, including kit decals and the pilot figure for the closed cockpit configuration.



The only warning I would offer is to fix the separate armoured glass to the windscreen using only water-based glue - white glue, Gator's Grip, Krystal Kleer etc. - and only after masking and painting.



Liquid glue will be drawn into the tiny gap between the two clear parts (and tube glues will squeeze in there too). Ask me how I know!

More to follow.
