Here are some images of Trumpeter Models 1/24 scale Supermarine Spitfire MK Vb. This aircraft was flown with the 303 Polish division March 1942. This was one of the first 1/24 scale aircraft released by Trumpeter and though currently out of production is along with their still available variants the best 1/24 scale Spitfires yet produced. Before this release the best we had was the Airfix/MPC Spitfire (post coming soon). I think one of the things I like best about Trumpeter kits is their soft yet sturdy plastic which of coarse requires very little sanding and as a result less intrusion on surface and detail.
