Cheers Steffen

I remembered the Airfix VC / Seafire this morning and compared the kits before breakfast! I forgot to edit the rest of the text!

All the best

Hello Rowan

Well, you know I like your reviews ..

One question though:


Quoted Text

.. release 1/48 scale kits of the previously unkitted Mk.VC ..



What about the Airfix kit? According to some accounts the best Spit V (shapewise and before this kit appeared) (a box art for proof )

then you write

Quoted Text

.. The rear fuselage matches Airfix's old Mk. V ..


and farther down

Quoted Text

.. The Mk. VC has been overlooked in 1/48 scale for far too long ..



I am confused.

anyway, maybe I will get that kit too ..

cheers

Steffen
