Bag The Doodlebug [3]

I received the Raiden planes for the V1 wingtipping game through the post today. I have to say that the 3D CAD generated models for the Spitfire XIV has to be the most detailed 1/285th scale model that I have ever seen.

If you flip it over and have a look at the panel lines on the underwing surfaces you will be knocked sideways by the detail. I'll take some close up pictures tomorrow so that you can see what I mean.

Anyway, I'm sorely tempted to squeeze the Tempests and Spitfires into the painting equation this month, although the Rapid Fire!  5th DCLI also need to be cleaned up, based and painted at the same time.

I've decided to leave the Meteors to one side for the moment as they're not quite right for 1944, but the V1's will need to be included in the schedule if I'm going to get a game in before Xmas.

The amazing artwork is from here:
