Want some tissues?

Makes the Deag Spitifre look a bit poor. And gives the Tamiya plastic kit a run for its money,

I've noticed there is a shift in materials being used for models of this type with a shift over to metal.

First the brass in the Stuka kit, and now silver metal in the Zero and this Spitfire.

In a way yes, but then again they're both from Deagostini, but the earlier was is a flying model, whereas this is a static model, so there is no real comparison.
I did collect the radio control one, sitting in the corner now, waiting for me to finish it.

Still want to cry though :-)

This Spit seems to be a wooden frame with an ally skin. Similar to the Lanc, although the Lanc frame seems much thinner (ready easier to break !)

I still want it though, but to be honest, it would come second to the Stuka.
