1/144 Supermarine Spitfire MK.VIII - Peters Planes
Also produced is a Supermarine Spitfire MK.VIII with the the option also of a "Wargamer" option, the 'Gold kit' has been discontinued due to the forthcoming Eduard Series kit. Although the "Wargamers" option is the more basic kit with solid resin glazing (NO vacform canopies), NO prop blades (spinner only), NO undercarriage (doors in closed/flying position only), it does have a new refined master retooled by Kampflieger for Peters Planes! I think you will find this much more apealing fromt an the astetic and production perspective.
Also, do not forgot about the the Spitfire Mk.XIVe also produced by Peters Planes as it is one of the best 1/144 kits and rivals not only any other 1/144 Spitfire, but also a great many kits besides produced in resin or plastic.
