1/33 Spitfire Mk.Vb, No. 317 Polish Fighter Squadron ("Wilenski")

Started new model, another 1/33 aircraft.
Spitfire in markings of No. 317 Polish Fighter Squadron("Wilenski")
New MM kit from 2013 but I have to tell you it's not perfect. Paper is too thin for some parts and it must be reinforced.

First photos:

More progress on Spitfire.
These new MMs are quite similar to Halinski. Tons of parts(often unusually, strangely designed) and like I said before, very thin paper. However, MM has one big advantage over Halinski. Halinski's models have no tolerance for any, even tiny imperfections. You have to be an artist to achieve a good result on those kits. MM is more "friendly" for builders.

You'e doing a great job, Zenon. Especially given the issues regarding paper strength.

Coming together very nicely! The kit seems to me like a good balance between details and "builder friendliness".
