wilky I'm missing three Spits that I really want and no one sells them. The Kopro decals are easy to get but the kits are rare now.
I have a passion for the WWII aircraft too. Luckily Australia did get the best ones. Wish we had some P-38's though. Fortunately we did have a handful of the F-4 photographic reconnaissance ones.
Apparently one P-47 was acquired by the R.A.A.F. for evaluation purposes but I have only ever seen one picture of it and it is in the background so other than seeing that it is a Jug there isn't enough reference material to try and model it.
There is a picture of the lone CAC CA-14 that appears to have a P-47 in the background but it is even more obscured.
In regards to Spitfire kits I'm still trying to get all the Arii reboxings of the Otaki kit of Clive Caldwell's Mk VIII
8. February 2017 at 05:25:45
wilky Stash is bigger than what you see as I have nearly a hundred doubles. What you see is my collection and the doubles are my actual stash as I'll only make a kit if I have two of them.
I'm currently building three Airfix Boomerangs. One out of the box, one detailed and one hopefully as the CA-14 if I can get a B-24 supercharger without having to buy a whole kit. Three Mk VIII Clive Caldwell Spits. A Mk V Clive Caldwell Spitfire and three Clive Caldwell P-40's
8. February 2017 at 05:52:56
Robert W Martel Holy Moly !! lol, So you think the Revell Mk II would be worth having along w/the HB Vb & the 22/24? Will it be noticeably different? Point me to some reference??? I did like that Revell kit, like I said I almost bought it.
8. February 2017 at 06:03:16
wilky There isn't a hell of a lot of difference between a Mk II and a Mk V but the Mk XXII has a teardrop canopy so looks markedly different. One can never have enough Spitfires in my opinion
8. February 2017 at 06:09:10
Robert W Martel Yea that's why I bought the 22/24, the canopy is so different, but it is an OLD kit. I know they had wing variations too, but I'm not up on all that. Does someone make a XXII in 1/32 that's reasonable? I'd sure like to buy one of the Tamiya kits just to look at, I probably wouldn't have the nerve to build it !!
8. February 2017 at 06:15:44
Clifford Keesler The differences between the MKII and the MKVb are very suttle, mainly engine /exhaust and most noteably armament. The MKV had cannons and the MKII had 8 .303 machine guns. I would definelty recommend the Revell MK II for any 1/32 Spit. collection.
12. February 2017 at 17:17:25
Robert W Martel Thanks Clifford< I know everybody says its a nice kit and I would love to have it. And they are quite reasonably priced. I bought the HB kit about 3 years ago when I was first getting started. So I have 2 32nd Spits already. I'm pretty sure I'll barely have room to hang all the planes I have already. I'm trying to keep it down to 1 or 2 of each (mostly 1). Although I do have 3 B-17s, D/F/G. And I do have several smaller scale duplicates for my grandson to get started on. Wish I had more space. lol

Clifford Keesler I know what you mean.

No serial. Choose you own.21/11B is possible at any time before January 1942. 2 large decals with red centres,2 large decals with optional spots, 2 small decals for the fuselage without spots -so you're stuck there. I Swoose emblem for after it's been repaired. You can choose when it got ODed and Neutral Greyed. If you want to do it as it is in the Museum, lots of things to do with seats,undercarriage,engines etc.Great fun!
