Unexpected model kit

Project started by accident. It was not planned, just Marcin wanted to build Spitfire PR XI converting one of available Mk IX kits. So he started with deeper nose cowling conversion designed with 3D software. What looked as quick and easy fit just ran out of control. Marcin realized, that trying to fit conversion to model kit is much more boring and needs so many trials. Designing full kit was much enjoyable work.

Spitfire is being born

Getting involved with Spitfire design is very demanding. Most of available kits have errors. Marcin worked on museum and archival photos to get correct shape of all Spitfire curves. Also design of parts division was challenge. Reduction of parts number to speed up casting with including all important details and having a perfect fit. Finally we got what looks much better kit than our Modell des Jahres (Model of Year) F8F-1 Bearcat and even much more easy to built.
