1/72 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.1

Gallery Article by Len Thomson

 

Spitfire Prototype: 
This is the original Hasegawa Mark 1 Spit. The engine cowling was reshaped as necessary, all panels rescribed (the panels were much different to the production versions), exhausts drilled out, etc etc. This model features a fully detailed cockpit (mainly scratchbuilt), vacuform canopy and reworked undercarriage.

My collection of Merlin engine Spits is not yet complete. I still have some way to go.
