Eduard's Jan Zdairsky gave Jean-Luc Formery a little Easter present earlier this month: Eduard's new 1/48 Spitfire IX in a sneak peek pre-release box.

Jean-Luc threw himself into building it right away, and now presents the finished product.

Jean-Luc, a pleasure to view your work as always, and I feel bad for only now taking the time to comment. It is shameful how few comments this build has recieved when it is to such a high standard. I am looking closely at the photos as I am going to try and copy the chipping technique on my FR Typhoon. The final weathering steps on this Spitfire are very highly skilled. I hope I don't make a mess trying to emulate them!

Ben, no need to feel bad. This feature is only a sum-up of the build thread so the model has already received it's share of attention.
