It says 'Spitfire' on the box so it must be a….erm… ah…errr…. Sorry I've got no idea.

Rudolf gets riveted.

When it comes to a single type group build of Britain's national aircraft* there's always going to be someone who lets the side down. I can proudly state that 'someone', is yours truly. I know you wouldn't expect anything less of me. 🙂
As a special extra added bonus (probably best not get too excited at this point) this is the link for both an in depth in box review AND a completely unbiased 😉 build review for all you Starfix fans out there who are dying to add this to their stash. Come on…. There must be someone…. Anyone? 🙁

* I don't remember being asked to take part in that vote. Why is it always the bloody Spitfire? I'd have voted Hurricane. Although if I'm honest, it would mainly to be annoying.

Oh yes, there's an extended 'Rudolf gets riveted' story as well.

But the weathering is truly amazing...next time try PZL-23 "Karas" from "ZTS Plastyk"... their Caudron CR714 "Cyclone" is equally interesting

Thanks very much mates. I'm glad you like my mini Spitfart drama. To be honest, it was Starfix, so it got what was coming to it. 😄

You forgot to build in a firecracker.
For the dramatic screen ending.
If only they'd had Smart phones in the eighties.
My life might have taken a completely different path

Best kit review ever.

When I was a kid we set a couple snap tite tiger 1's on fire. Good times.

Thanks for the comments mates. 👍
Those eggplane 109 are lethal. At least their unwarranted disparaging comment are. 🙁
More laughs (hopefully) if you click on the link. 🙂

Thanks Alec, I thought it may amuse you.
I'm never going to be able to produce a model as good as you, so it looks like I'll have set light to them to get noticed. 😄 😄 😄
