While Tamiya has deservedly attracted a huge response from Spitfire modellers for their superb 1/32nd Spitfire Mk.IX, the “pioneer” Mk.IX kit in this scale, by Pacific Coast Models has still much to offer. Being simpler, it is an easy basis for any conversions – and a less expensive one too!.
Some six months ago I built the same early Mk. IX version as ZX-6 which is already displayed at this site, courtesy of Yrjo Knuuttila. Desert Camouflage is very appealing!
I recently purchased a second PCM kit after being given an RB Productions resin after market conversion set for a Mk.XIV. I spent an enjoyable couple of months completing the project.
The decals come from Zotz and they are excellent.
Please keep up the great work – greetings to all from Sydney, Australia.
