SPITFIRE MK XII


1/48 Spitfire Mk XII


by Tony Prince


Introduction

Here are some photos of my Mk.XII built about 18 months ago, before (of course) Aeroclub came out with their conversion kit. This model was built entirely 'out of the spares box'; from which I obtained the following: Airfix Seafire Mk.III (wings), Academy Mk.XIVc (cockpit interior & canopy), Otaki Mk.VIII (fuselage aft of firewall), Hobbycraft Seafire Mk.XV (Cowling, spinner & props) & lastly, cannon bulges from Hasegawa. Not as difficult as one might think & the whole exercise gave me a lot of satisfaction.
