Hi, I started this project some years ago but it is still a "long" work in project. I've always been fascinated by this plane. I guess that it is possibly because it was the final Spitfire iteration used in British-led operations and also because this is a mysterious topic. Mysterious? Yes, indeed. You'll be surprised to see that so few books cover this final variant correctly. Most scale plans have many major errors, technical manuals are nearly impossible to find, no walkaround has ever been published and the only survivor is not in a museum in UK but hidden in a US private collectio
OK, I'm in, having bought two Bearcats just for the engines, I have enough bits and bobs about to hack at least one of these kits together, and hopefully rekindle my acquaintance with my airbrush, before I go and mess up the Swordfish!! My idea is to use a Sea Fury prop, enlarge the rudder and wing tips a bit, put Brit Triplex 300lb rockets and cannon fairings, maybe replace the wheels and tyres if I can enlarge the wheel bays a bit, and finish it as a Korean period strike fighter.
