"Fun Build"
olszowka
The spitfire MK.XIVc Was a fun build, the instruction were clear and the parts fit perfect, except for the three piece cockpit canopy . The decals make the plane look awesome . You may have trouble with the decals on the wing they are very large . I tried sever time to place then on the wing and finally cut them in half witch made it much easier. The painting instructions came with several pictures which helped greatly . This is one of the best looking plains in my collection .

"Very Nice Griffon Spit!"
tirith42
Very nice kit of this late-model Griffon-powered Spit. Overall fit is excellent - just required sanding, no filler. Nice engraving and good decals that went down beautifully. Cockpit detail is decent, though the seatbelts are just a decal. I drilled out the exhaust stacks and gun barrels for a more realistic appearance. The propeller and spinner really catch your eye on this aircraft, as they are so large, and Academy did a good job here. Only real complaint is that the wing gun bays are very sparse - just the guns and nothing else. Kit manufacturers: if you're going to open up the innards of an aircraft in any way, at least provide sufficient details to look realistically busy. But if this bothers you, just cover the bays up (I usually keep the covers on, but took them off for the photos to demonstrate how empty they look). This kit really captures the shape and grace of the Mk. VIV. Falls together and looks great. Recommended.
