This is a 1/32nd Spitfire Mk. XII with the markings of EB-B MB882 from No.41 sqn RAF Tangmere, Sussex England in October 1943.
The base kit is the Hasegawa Spitfire Mk. Vb. I have used the Paragon Spitfire Mk. XII conversion set with the Warbird universal resin C wings.
Other additions used in this Project are as follows:

- Barracudacast resin seat
- Barracudacast Spitfire cockpit parts
- Grey Matter Spitfire ventral lower wing part
- Grey Matter main wheels
- Master Details horizontal tails
- Barracudacast pilot Access door
- Archer Fine Transfer surface detail fasteners
- SAC landing legs
Paints are Gunze and Tamiya acrylics.
Roundels are from spare parts of DK decals.
Customized Fuselage codes (EB-B) are from Customhobbydecals Australia.
Serial numbers and letters (MB882) are from Xtradecal.
Cockpit mirror, beam approach antenna, ventral tank and its hooks are from Tamiya spare parts.
