A slight re-tool of PK-2, requiring the rear decking to be removed to fit the low back and teardrop canopy. I used it here for the clipped tips. The decals come from the High Planes kit.

I did this one a few months back. It was a lousy fit but once done I thought it was quite nice. The best bit was the decals, absolutely superb in terms of register and ease of applying.

If you can't Dodge it, Ram it!!!!!!!!

BAC - superb finish on the Spitfire. The raised lines on the kit looked problematic but the finished model is great. Did you rub them down and rescribe, or just rub down?
