More of my 1/144 Academy collection, this time the single-seat legend the Spitfire. Two Spitfire Vb's chasing the Hun.
A simple and clean model that paints up beautifully.
Nothing like a bit of magic making it to tabletop, these boys have the Polish national insignia markings on them too.
In the Battle of Britain the Poles of 303 Squadron outclassed everyone attaining the highest numbers of kills in relation to other RAF squadrons coupled with the lowest operational losses. Prior combat experience had taught them to get in close (100-50 yards) before delivering a burst of deadly fire.
They proved Dowding's initial doubts over their combat suitability wrong and in a battle that was won by the narrowest of margins they helped tilt the odds in Britain's favour and were a welcome addition to the RAF order of battle.
