Supermarine Spitfire XIV, Frog, 1/72, 1969.
« on: October 04, 2017, 10:05:08 AM »
Hello :-salut

Here is to be seen the second Griffon-powered Spitfire by Frog, the Spitfire XIV, which was issued in 1969 and I built it during the same year. In the box we also found a Fieseler Fi 103 (V1) flying bomb. The kit is generally accurate but the engine cowling is a little too slim. It's confirmed by the fact that the diameter of the spinner is a little larger thant that of the front section of the cowling... The wing fillet lacks the gull-wing shape on its undersurface and runs too far along the fuselage. The rear-view mirror atop the windshield has disappeared... Decals are of high quality.  Humbrol paints, the reference of which I've forgotten.
