Spotlight Review

"Light on the Wallet, Light on the Detail"
I only gave this kit a 3 star due to the lack of detail that is well known for Revell/Monogram kits. If you are looking for detail, you won't find it in this kit. You will be constantly filling seams due to the parts not fitting properly, as well as constant sanding, clipping, and trimming due to poor molding of the kit. However, if you are looking for a relatively easy build that is not too time consuming and a small little project, then this kit is for you. If not, then go with a Tamiya kit, and you'll get your money's worth.

"Decent First Kit"
rja12 (Viera, Florida)
This was my first kit after a 20 + year absence from the hobby. The kit is basic with raised panel lines. My expectations were low, not because of the kit but because I had very little confidence in my building skills. The instructions are simple and the kit went together well. there was some flash and sink marks I had to take care of. the wing-body join seem required a lot off putty. After priming, I used Testors MM paints. This kit was also the first time I had ever used an airbrush. I did the camouflage free-hand. For my first model in years, I was very pleased with the results. The decals were in register but required Solvaset to get them to settle down over the panel lines. Overall, a decent beginners kit.

This is a no frills kit if there ever were one. There is no cockpit, no pilot, and the canopy is made up of an uneccessarily tiny three pieces (it should have been two small pieces or one simple piece. In fact, I bought two of these spitfires and for the second one, i used two extra clear canopy pieces from another set). The model contains no weaponary/drop tanks for the undercarriage, nor does it have any guns protruding from the front of the wings. Finally, the decal set does NOT match up with the instructions on the back page of the directions! The letter markings for the plane that appear on the decal set ARE NOT the same letters that appear on the diagram on the instructions. Nor do the numbers next to the decals correspond with the numbers on the instructions. This is a very simplistic, and is the poorest kit that I've purchased and put together so far.

"VERY basic, antique kit"
Originally produced in 1962, this kit shows its age, and not too well. It is accurate in outline and the fit is adequate, but the kit suffers from lack of the detail for which Monogram became an industry leader twenty years later, and is representative of a time when models were more toys than miniatures of the real thing. A quick, simple build appropriate for a first model kit, but there are other kits that better represent the famous hero of the Battle of Britain, if at a slightly higher price.
