.:Hasegawa:. Spitfire Mk.I & Bf 109E & He 111P/H "The Air Fight Over Dunkirk"

trio of titans

The Battle of Dunkirk tested the mettle of troops from many countries. Early on, RAF pilot Colin F. Gray's Spitfire was severely damaged in a dogfight against a Bf 109. The skirmish sent the Spitfire into a dangerous dive, yet Gray miraculously landed safely. By WWII's end, Gray had 27 kills, making him New Zealand's top flying ace. This limited edition kit combo features a Spitfire Mk.I model with two RAF marking options, plus a Bf 109E kit and one He 111 kit with one Luftwaffe marking option each.

Some more progress on my 1/72 resin Supermarine Type 327 'Shrew' project. Decal artwork has now gone to Fantasy Prinshop and four views are finished. The kit includes 'What-If' marking for the prototype (project did not get beyond mock-up stage), along with suitable roundels for Fighter and Fighter or Photo Reconnaissance options for which optional parts are included. Still on track to release in middle of March at IPMS Southern Expo held in Hornchurch, Essex, available from my website soon after.
