My second build I will be doing is the ICM kit of the Spitfire Mk VIII. This is a stunning looking little kit which until recently was probably the best kit available in 1:48th scale. It has a few fit issues but I am sure these will be overcome with careful test fitting and filler!!! I have ordered a decal sheet from Superscale to replace the kit decals as I fear these are a bit suspect and may break up in water. I also intend to get an etched detail set for the interior and a set of turned gun barrel suitable for this version from Master



Nice box art of plane in action



Un opened parts bag - I will post full sprues when I start build.



Instructions and paint scheme - the same markings on the Superscale sheet I have ordered.

As I said she is nicely detailed with some super fine work and full engine detail so may pose her with engine on show. Should manage to complete both builds in the time frame and if so a Tamiya Mk V may sneak in.

A more in depth unboxing of the parts reveals some lovely detail on the parts and some really fine parts so some care will need to be taken when removing from sprues. The decal sheet I was awaiting has arrived from the US and is a HUGE improvement on the ones included in the kit.

Anyway here are the sprue shots......



Fuselage half and some lovely engine detail parts.....



Nice detail on bulkheads.....



Nicely detailed wing with option to have guns showing....



Bombs included.....



Optional top wing panels for different weapons fit

Will post more shortly have made a start to drilling out the holes in bulkheads while still on the sprue and have made a start on the interior. Not sure if I will get a detail set for this one as the detail is nice - may just use Eduard harness set.
