Following in the lead of some of the other recently new  forum members, I thought I'd post a couple pics of my Spitfire builds. Going in order of variant, here they are:

This is my most recent one, a Revell II converted to a Vc using the AML conversion set.

Here's a Tamiya VII that I converted using scratch built parts.

The hardest bit was the deeper fixed rear canopy.

Gotta have a sharkmouth somewhere so my VIII was built as Grey Nurse.

This is the only one I've done inflight as I'm not the best at painting pilot figures. The one in here is probably my best ever.

Here comes the IXs!

First up is Tolly Hello. Don't have many pics of this one so I might have to take some new ones in the future.

The first Tamiya Spit I built I converted to a XIV using the RB Productions conversion.

My XVI I did as TD248 in her silver and red scheme.

Even the Merlin was red with chrome.

Finally, the Revell/Matchbox 24

There's still a few more left in the stash so hopefully this will continue to grow.
