I’m a huge admirer of the pioneering work of RJ Mitchell back in the 20s and 30s so the S5 has been on my wish list for some time and so just had to splash out on my first resin kit. I was umming and ahhing for all of 2 whole seconds before my card came out - as you’ll see below, on first impressions, it’s looking like it is worth every hard earned penny - I hope I can do Marsh Models kit justice. Quite a few people have asked for images of the kit content so I’d thought I might as well take the plunge and start a WIP with a view to starting this build before (hopefully) too long.
I’m planning be building the S5 (no doubt for quite a while) alongside my Winkle Brown SH Airacobra build which is pottering along slowly (but surely) due to the many corrections and all the added detail I’m lavishing on it. I have to admit, having seen the quality of the detail (and trying not to underestimate the challenges along the way) I’m soooooooo looking forward to doing something more or less out of the box with the S5
... and what a small, well packed box!
The instructions etc. with a very welcome touch of a swatch of the main blue paint to match to
I’ll just let the pictures do the talking...
