Introduction

Peter had the master CAD designed in the Ukraine (!) as well as CNC milled there and then made the molds and casting himself. The decals are still being designed but there will be essentially a choice with each kit of which one you want from the ones shown (subject to change). There is no instruction sheet as it is pretty self explanatory where things go! There will be a colour and marking guide as a PDF file sent to the purchaser (again this is being worked on). These resin kits are what is traditionally called "Garage kits" and I literally do it after my full time job and family time in my shed in the back yard here in Mudgee, NSW. The Spitfire and upcoming Beaufighter Mk.X and J2F Duck are part of my new 'GOLD' series of very accurate and detailed planes and are a substantial improvement over my more basic other planes as seen on my website - www.petersplanes.com.
