    Hi Nobi,

    Have you made a decision yet as to when you will release it for the Beta build?

    Hello Nobi,

    This is a great little kit so far. Only one little problem I noticed, which I already reported to you.

    I hope you plan on more 1/100s.

    Here is a short build report. starting with the the layout of the body sections and formers.

    Here the body sections and the wing spars are built.

    This was the first time I ever built a body this way. I have many Marek kits which are done the same way, but this was my first time attempting it.

    I was very pleased with the fit.

    Here the fuselage and starboard wing have been assembled.

    Here we have the problem I reported. The spar slot cut out in the fuselage segment was in an incorrect position. I had to measure and recut the slot ahead of the wrong one. Just to give the other builders a heads up :p

    With the fuselage and wings done it's all downhill from here :D

    Here the radiator and oil cooler are built and installed.

    P.S. if some of the details on the topside look a bit blurry it because I had poor quality construction paper for this build. I ran out of the good stuff and this crummy paper was all I had to work with. I plan on doing this one agian later when I have better paper.

    Here we have the canopy and exhausts assembled and installed. Also I did a bit of edge coloring on the wings, tail surfaces, and exhaust pipes.

    All that's left now is the spinner, prop blades, and landing gear, but that'll have to wait till tomorrow. It's time to hit the sheets :p Besides the ol eyes are getting a bit squirrly after a long day :p

    Till tomorrow,
    Getter 1

    Here's the finished product (sorry I forgot to post these when I finished it).

    The last shot is the Spitfire next to a 1/100 plastic Me 109. I hope Nobi puts out more of these :D
