Stunning build Ralph, have wanted to build this aircraft since I first saw photos of it years ago...

 

Always a pleasure seeing your work, your AB skills and attention to detail are second to none.  BRAVO!!!

Probably one of the best Spits I've seen. The the finish I always dream of getting.

 

Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely fantastic, great build, great finish, and it's a Spitfire, what more could you ask for, Santa fetched me this kit but I don't think mine will be quite up to this standard when it's built.

 

Cheers
