Hobby Boss 1/72 Spitfire Vb Day One


Tonight I decided to start the Hobby Boss Spitfire Vb "Easy Assemble" kit.  Sure it has issues, but I hope to correct them with the use of spares from Airfix Spitfires.  After less than an hour, here I am.  Easy, indeed.  My goal is to actually finish it this week and I hope to post progress each day.  It will be done up as "Buzz" Beurling's T-L/EP706 with my interpretation of a "Malta Blue" scheme.

Nice work on the Spit, Jim. Now just replace the canopy, prop and undercarriage with the Airfix bits!

Andrew,

That is indeed the plan. I was planning on using the kit undercarriage and just Airfix wheels and gear doors, though.

David,

I have fans?
