Here's my entry in the GB. It's the Tamiya low back XVI kit.

I'll be using Life Like decals to do TD248.

I have a bit of AM to add to the build but it'll be mostly OOB.

This means I'll have two different Spitfires on separate group builds at the same time.

You're certainly the Spitfire man Carl, I've no doubt this one will be well up to the standard of your other Spits and she'll look really striking in those colours!

Hi Carl, can't wait to see you get started on this one. Great choice for the GB and she'll look superb in that striking scheme.

Thanks Max!

At one point last night, I had a VII, VIII, XIV, this one and the 22 in the Jurassic Plastic GB all out on my workbench. It was quite the mess of plastic sprues. I really enjoy building the Tamiya Spitfires for some reason.

I think I'd have got confused about which bit belonged to which and ended up with a bit of a mongrel or two! :)

Thanks Steve! I got your PM which has been very helpful so I appreciate it. Nothing like getting the info from someone who had a connection to the plane.
