Another Mk XVII Seafire. The aeroplane depicted is SX358, No 800 NAS, Fleet Air Arm on HMS Triumph and at Hal Far, Malta in 1947. .
My rather overly chipped rendition uses some cockpit Eduard PE but is pretty much OOB – including use of the very good kit decals.
Paint is Tamiya Sky XF-21 undersides and Vallejo Extra Dark Sea Grey on the uppers, both over a base coat of Alclad 2 Airframe Aluminium.
Having improved my research a bit since, I think this airframe, in 1947, should probably be on 3-spoke wheels. Oh well.
Another great kit from Airfix and one I hope to do again.
