Hi. I'm in the mood for a large-scale Spitfire MkI and am wondering which kit, Airfix or Trumpeter, is the "best". I know "best" is a loaded word. I'm not necessarily speaking of perfect fit; rather, I'm interested in good detail, shape and surface molding (panels, etc). I think I built the Airfix kit when I was a boy (back when it was molded in white plastic), but I remember nothing about it.
I'm not a panel line bigot, and I don't expect Tamiya fit quality (I'm working on Hasegawa's 1/32 MkII right now). However, if I have to add so much resin to the Airfix kit that I end up with the Trumpeter price, I guess I have my answer.
Also, I haven't found much in the way of reviews for the Airfix kit. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks very much.
