Spitfire Mk LF XVIe. 1/48th scale. Old Airfix kit. Not a kit I would recommend. Loads of problems with accuracy, not least that cockpit windscreen, and very thick wings

If you come across this specific kit, best leave it be. Airfix’s latest Spitfires are fantastic though – see my Mk Vb here.
I built my kit as an LF XVIe of the RCAF. Here’s a picture of the real thing…
