On this Spitfire kit, a blank insert is provided to fill the gap. The clear parts are thin and transparent. The decals are beautifully printed and in perfect register. P REPARATION The Special Hobby/Classic Airframes Spitfire Vc presents some construction challenges, but careful preparation, some minor modifications and the right attitude will minimize the pain and deliver a nice result. Preparation is very important. There is a little more flash (excess plastic) than you might expect to see on a long-run injection-moulded kit from a company like Tamiya or Hasegawa, but this should not be a serious hurdle.
I then sort the parts into major categories (for example, wing and undercarriage, fuselage and tail planes, cockpit) and pack these into separate plastic bags. C ONSTRUCTION Not surprisingly, construction commences with the cockpit. Testfitting showed that the instrument panel and rear bulkhead were too wide to fit between the cockpit sidewalls. You can either trim some material from each side of these parts (A8, A26 and, to be safe, A24), or you might prefer to cut the lower fuselage sidewalls into sections (parts A3 and A29), leaving spaces for the bulkheads to fit in between.
Additional weathering included a selective application of black/brown streaks and spots. LEFT: All the finishing touches have now been added – aerial mast, undercarriage, pilot’s mirror. BELOW: The Special Hobby/Classic Airframes Spitfire Mk Vc really looks the part. A bit more effort is required than your typical long-run injection-moulded kit, but if you are willing to put in the time, the results will be worthwhile. com CHAPTER 3 • WORKING WITH RESIN CONVERSIONS 42 W ORKING WITH RESIN CONVERSIONS The Spitfire Vc was an important variant that saw service in most theatres, but Airfix, Hasegawa and Tamiya all produced their 1/48-scale Spitfire Mk V kits with the ‘b’ wing.
