Sword’s 1/72 Spitfire PR IV

I picked up Sword’s new tool PR IV at my favorite hobby shop, Hayes Hobby House in Fayetteville, NC. It’s a fabulous little kit. The sidewall detail is by far the best I’ve ever seen in any 1/72 scale Spitfire kit. All the “right bits” are represented, and with enough relief to really stand out. The seat, instrument panel, bulkheads and other parts are equally well represented.

Here are some pictures of the interior parts. It’s a shame there is not an option for an open canopy.

It’s good to see so many Spitfire kits hitting shelves these days. Sword has definitely hit a home run with this one.
