within an hour of posting this in reply to mal on my manchester build thread_
" i'm being very strict about only building one kit at a time"

And just to confirm what i wrote-
" i'm being very strict about only building one kit at a time"

I found myself starting this lot!-

The reason being is that i forgot i had enlisted in the spitfire campaign, so i dug out some spits from the stash, and decided that if i'm going to spray one with the cockpit green i could just as easily spray four.

And of course as someone who shall remain nameless (Mal) always says-
YOU CAN'T HAVE TOO MANY SPITFIRES!

Personally I love the Airfix Spit, it really looks like a Spit when you're done and it just needs a little TLC, plus its so gosh darned cheap!

Great Jowady, nice to see that Airfix are getting more and more areas right and that also begs the question:

So why only 4?
