S‘Smiley’ Spitfire on parade and a clash of armour

Just looked at the latest Workbench entry.  The built-up Spitfire 5c's look great. I will have to get a few on backorder and decals for some of the CAN RAF / RCAF Malta Aces. From this entry, the previous workbench entry as well as the November Arifix Model World test-shot build, I think that this one will be a real gem. Nice to have the four-cannon version as an optional build for our Australian friends too.

I am also happy to see the new Beaufighter release will have an option to build 404 Sqn RCAF Beaufighter EE-H NE355 which according to Aviaeology served with 404 from April 1944 though February 1945.....about 11 months....that is a long service record for a combat aircraft. I think that a late release of the previous Airfix Beaufighter was the same aircraft but with the pre-D-Day squadron code 2-H

Finally I had a look at the Quick Build Ford Ranger Raptor pick-up truck. This one looks like a good place to start my five year old grand daughter in model building. She has already had lots of fun with the Lego type building blocks so this is a natural next step!
