Spitfire F Mk 21

After nearly 2 years in build, I’m calling it done. Here’s a couple of photos.
Base kit was the Airfix Mk XIX but with grafted-on Seafire Mk46 wings.
Build/conversion can be found here on Britmodeller.com – Work In Progress.
It’s not quite what I was hoping for. Lots of room to improve (there always is!).

The  model represents a Supermarine Spitfire Type 356, Spitfire F Mk 21 of 600 Squadron (County of London) RAuxAF, Biggin Hill, 1947 – almost 100% Airfix! (If only they’d produce and decent Mk XIV/XVIII).
