2014-10-04 17:32:52Well, firstly such an Iconic aircraft. This collection and end resulting model must therefore be of the finest quality. I have built 20 issues of the 40 ish I`ve received and the part quality is" BRILL". You will need some very basic woodworking tools (no major outlay), so should appeal to anyone with the most basic skills. That said, the instructions supplied are of a very good standard, with written instructions that are easy to follow and step by step pictures to aid part identification and assembly. Will update this review at a later date. If you want to build one of Britain`s most Iconic pieces of history, then this should be on your "wish list" Regards Derek
2014-10-03 19:01:33For anyone wanting an introduction to working with wood and metal then I highly recommend DeaGostini's "Build the Spitfire". The step by step build sequences and quality of laser cut parts make this 1/12 scale Iconic fighter a joy to build Whatever your experience in model making. When you build the fuselage and wings you will learn the art of creating the lines that gave this stunning fighter its place in history.
2014-10-02 20:35:22The Spitfire, a truly iconic fighter that has been a favourite of many modellers all over the world and of all ages. This kit is truly fabulous in its design, construction and overwhelming detail right down to the rivets on the panelling. The frame is constructed using quality wooden parts to which aluminium panelling is fixed, this can either be polished to give a quality shine or if you prefer painted in its customary livery. Instructions for completion are very easy to follow, designed to appeal to beginners and experienced modellers alike. There are multiple members diaries available on the Modelspace forum packed full of tips and techniques to bring this model to life. There is also an Official Build Diary that will take you through each and every stage of the build, this diary is available not only in its written format, complete with pictures but also in the form of video clips for every stage... The 1:12 scale really brings out the best of the detail this kit has to offer and at a very affordable monthly subscription..... Would recommend this kit as a must have item for any modeller and doubt any purchaser would be disappointed with the quality on offer.. Good luck to all who decide to build this iconic fighter kit.. Regards Alan
