Seafire Mk XV

Special Hobby’s 1/48th scale Supermarine Seafire straight from the box.
A good kit needing some fitting and a bit of filler around the usual ‘Spitfire’ wing roots. My only real concern about the kit is that I think the U/C legs look a bit long.
Paint is Humbrol uppers shaded lighter on the top-most surfaces, and Tamiya XF-21 under-surface. Decals represent 13-9/T (serial number unknown) of 806 squadron, Fleet Air Arm based at Trincomalee in 1945,
1/300th scale Bedford trucks and scratch-built card hangars in the background (copied from those still standing at RNAS Ringtail, Burscough, Lancashire).
