May I present MJ627 '9G Q' Sptfire MkIXT from the Biggin Hill Heritage Hanger, using the 1:48 Hasegawa Mk IX kit with Brigade Models resin conversion and Eduard upgrade set. Painted using Vallejo Air paints.

This build was an extremely enjoyable one. The Brigade resin conversion set was a sublime fit with the Hasegawa donor kit, with very minor filling and sanding needed.

I used an Eduard resin cockpit set so I could enhance the 2nd seat with some of the kit parts.

The Vallejo paints were a dream to work with as usual and allowed me to use the myriad of aftermarket decals to replicate this great aircraft.
