Onwards and Upwards with Seafires

This is the next Seafire - well actually in date order - the earlier one. This is a Seafire F.45. It is as much fun to build as the previous one - in the sense that it needs a good bit of work but responds well to the effort. Here it is in white primer - first coat to find out where the filler needs to be improved.

The tail planes are resin so I was a bit lucky to get them on straight as I had to use super glue. The bottom of the fin had to be cut off and a resin base fitted (with a hook included). The kit itself is for a Spitfire so you get a new fuselage and a few resin bits to convert it. It all works out quite well.
