As expected, the Airfix kit proves to be a solid piece. Putty is necessary, however, which is also due to the modular design of the new Airfix kits. In any case, the Mk.XIV is already making a good turn!

.... and on to the decals! Finished appliance of the markings; tomorrow it will be sealed with another layer of Gunze gloss clear. That is a pleasing and well made kit indeed!

Looking good - will be a nice comparison together with the early Spit & Hurricane 👍

That's it- Spitfire is a never-boring topic!

Finished! I managed to make a few pictures of today's rollout. A Griffon Spitfire is an elegant affair, especially a Mk.XIV. The Airfix kit does justice to this fact, I have tried to contribute to it as well.

Roland - an excellent job. Can you give a brief rundown on how you applied the kit decals?

Thank you mates for your interest and motivating words! I can only say that the decals worked excellently and could be handled without any problems with my usual way - so full praise to Airfix! The decals are applied on a layer of well dried glossy acrylic clear varnish, directly after application they are treated with "Mr Mark Softer" and afterwards with "Mr Mark Setter Neo". A sealing layer of clear varnish completes this process and releases the model for a final treatment of the intended degree of gloss and weathering. But I can guess you all do it more or less similar.
