1/72 Revell of Germany Spitfire Mk.Vb

Gallery Article by Len Thomson

 

This is the Revell of Germany kit with some modifications. Late style elevators were added along with Mark IX style exhausts. The gull wing section was added from another kit (I forget which). These Mark Vbs were still in use by 234 Sqn, at Deanland in mid 1944, and were in operation over the D Day landing beaches. This model features a fully detailed cockpit (mainly scratchbuilt), vacuform canopy and reworked undercarriage.

My collection of Merlin engine Spits is not yet complete. I still have some way to go.
