There are a few pictures of my Spitfire F. Mk 21 model in 1/48th scale built last year. As there is currently no good injection-moulded 1/48 kit of this Spitfire mark on the market, the modeller has to resort to conversion or kit-bashing to to arrive at an accurate model.

Fortunately, major components can be sourced from other Spitfire kits. I have used three different kits for my project. The nose and wings came from Airfix Spitfire F Mk 22/24. The complete tail section was borrowed from Academy Spitfire Mk. XIV. Finally,  the high-back fuselage came from Aeroclub F. Mk 21 conversion.

The detailed cockpit comes from KMC resin set, with the addition of scratchbuilt details.

The markings represent personal aircraft of Air Vice Marshall J. W. Baker. AVM Baker flew this aircraft as the AOC of No.12 Group based at Ludham, Great Britain, in September 1946.
