Rolf Arne Berg's Spitfire 1944

Recommended Posts




I have not been around for awhile so I thought you might be interested in my latest Norwegian aircraft project, well at the period of time this model reprosents it was part of the R.A.F. The subject is the Spitfire MkIX as used by Wing Commander Rolf Arne Berg when leading No. 132 (Norwegian) Wing from Groningen, Holland autumn 1944.

The model is the Matchbox Spitfire IX/XVI with Colorado Decals and the Extra Tech etched fret designed for the KP kit for a little extra detail.

Here are some photo's for your comments on the progress so far












Many thanks for looking

All the best

A serious amount of Putty there. I'm surprised to see the Matchbox issue still around. Can you build an IXe out of the box? Seems to me on the box art that it's a IXc, showing a different gun configuration than the one RAB flew in the autumn of 44.

Not that it really matters. If you're happy with it then all you need to do is switch the guns around, after a bit of cutting.
