Pilot

Air Vice Marshal, James Edgar “Johnie” Johnson is the subject of my first Spitfire build.

Johnson is credited with 37 confirmed kills and that made him the highest scoring Western Ace who flew against the German Air Force. He’s perhaps the most decorated and famous British ace of WWII. 

I love the picture of him on his Spitfire’s wing with his black Lab, Sally. Probably because we also have a black Lab dog.

Let’s get down to the livery. I’ll be building EN 398.

Lots of interior pics will help building the cockpit.

Including this unique control stick.

I won’t be using any after market parts on this build kit as the Eduard kit has plenty of detail included.

Looking forward to this first kit build for me in a long, long time.
