Well dinner delt with lets do a bit of exploring

DSCF2807507x640_zps4a6d39d5.jpg

DSCF2808640x529_zpsdc0181db.jpg

Main part of the box has 6 bags of resin, 1 bag of etch & a bag with the u/c legs in white metal

DSCF2810640x434_zpsb6854aca.jpg

Inside the brown box are 5 bags containing small parts a few loose so be careful when you open as not to drop any or the carpet monster will have them, also there is the canopy & a couple of more clear parts

DSCF2811640x539_zpsbd41c261.jpg

And of course the instruction booklet 6 pages with about 30 stages, lets open some bags you will have to wait whilst I take some picks & upload them

Also we have a very nice decal sheet by Fantasy Printshop, you will not need much to get the backing sheet to disappear on these beauties,

Bob

Hi Lee,
Yes an Attacker would be nice, maybe Graham from Iconicair could be persuaded if he sells enough of these Spitefuls first?,

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Ahh! the smell of fresh cast resin, a look in the bags reveals some nice parts, the panel lines are
about the same depth as Tamiya's Spitfires & the quality of the resin is suburb,

DSCF2815640x574_zps05123f0e.jpg
The parts in the centre long & thin are to strengthen the wings plus they have part of the U/C bay on
them nice touch I think,

Love the pin on the prop to locate it on the spinner back plate no mistakes on which way round [ clockwise or anti ] plus you have the correct angle as well great,

Bob

I have found a very small amount of flash on some parts & it is so thin you possible could take it of with your fingers,

DSCF2825640x465_zpsd23c3731.jpg

DSCF2822640x470_zpse5238130.jpg
Etch is nice too & the white metal U/C legs are nice & solid not like another Co I have used which after a month bent over with the weight they were so soft,

Thanks Bob !

 

What is the kind of clear sheet, with engraved shape in the bottom of the pictures of the clear parts?

Hi Heinz

Glad to see you have joined us in purchases one of these, do not think you will be disappointed,
there is a little cleaning up to do around edges & cutting casting blocks off, which I have been doing tonight so not much to show, wings or cockpit next

Wow. That looks superb. Thanks for taking the time to show us the pieces Bob. The quality of the kit looks second to none in your images.

 

Unfortunately, the Spiteful is not an aeroplane that particularly sparks my interest. For me, it lost much of the Sptifire's grace which is a shame as I think I'd enjoy tackling one of these.

(Now if Graham could be persuaded to produce a dH-88 Comet or Supermarine S-6b racer to this standard I think I'd take the plunge.)

 

I hope the kit builds as well as it looks and I certainly wish Iconicair every success with this product.

 

Perhaps you might start a build log Bob?

 

Cheers.
