Ventura | V3271: Supermarine Spitfire Prototype
Reviewed by Iain Ogilvie
Not really new as these have been available for a number of years. The prototype Spitfire is an enigmatic subject and debate over exact colours and wing skins will continue - but as the first of the line, and such a clean one at that, she deserves some modelling love.
These decals are typical Ventura quality - nice and thin, good colour and with excellent registration - they should work well!
The prototype Spit is probably the prettiest Spitfire of them all and would make a great conversion from the Revell Spitfire Mark IIa kit. It's just a pity that the Paragon conversion isn't still available - although a suitable propeller (probably the most difficult part to replace) is available from Grey Matter Figures.
These decals are currently available directly from Ventura.
