Is this an #Airfix Anorak moment?

I was browsing in a model shop today when I found both old and new tooled versions of (A01071 & A01071A) of the 1:72 Supermarine Spitfire Mk1a. So I bought them both.

Inspecting the kits the detail in the new one is incredible – lines are crisp and clear (but practically speaking probably way out of scale). The number of decals is much increased – you even get red decals for the gun ports on the wing (what\’s wrong with paint?).

I\’ll take a while to finish both models, but the old one certainly need tweaking as the upper wing sections don\’t fit at all well. Milliput to the rescue!!
