Roden SE 5 in 1:72

A neat OOB build is this Roden SE 5 in 1:72. The model features very nice surface detailing on the upper wings and fuselage, but be warned, the decals don't work, even with coats of Klear and various softeners and for the smaller items simply broke up in the water.

Airfix Spitfire Mk I, IIa 1:48th

Some slow progress on this last of the 'old' Aifix 'new tools'. Beginning to wish I'd started the new Seafire instead. Details are reasonable but the fit is not good. Decided I'm doing this as the early variant with flat canopy and metal lower surfaces but of course I've already finished the cockpit and can't go back and repaint the seat etc...
