One significant gap in the otherwise excessive range of scale plastic Spitfire models available today is the lack of really good kits representing the Spitfire Mk. VC, featuring the “C” wing, four-cannon armament and integral windscreen armour. Spitfire Mk. VC should be of particular importance to modellers because it was this version that was exclusively deployed in overseas theatres such as Malta, Italy and Australia.
It should therefore come as good news that Special Hobby of Czech Republic is developing an injection-moulded kit of the VC. The kit is scheduled for release during spring of 2008, and expect also a Seafire Mk. II and Mk. III to be released later.
Here is a preview of the kit parts at the Czech site Modelweb.
