1/48 Hasegawa Spitfire MkVb

I picked this kit up cheap from a club member and it sat on the work bench for over a year while I waited to replace the missing seat. Finally found one and had to rush to finish it for the contest. This and the F-16 were still wet with glue and paint when I left to enter them in the contest!

I used Aeromaster decals for P/O Alan Wrights aircraft. Photos I have show this aircraft heavily weathered, However I didn't have time to do this, I may still. Although the outside was a rush job the inside was well researched for proper colours and seat belt attachment points.

I did some detailing in the cockpit area with masking tape seat belts and foot straps on the rudder pedals and I added a sprue crow bar to the door.
