1/72 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.IX converted to a Spitfire XVI

Yet again the Hasegawa Mark IX (one of my favourite Spitfire kits). The rear fuselage was cut down to the bubble top style. Markings for the Central Gunnery School in November 1946. 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.
