There are some slight typographical mistakes on the instructions and guide numbers for this sheet. For X4784, the caption indicates that the aircraft is R6903 and the number indicating its serial on the sheet should read ’37’ not ’39’. Also, for the PR. Mk IV with an unknown serial, the description should read ‘page 16’ not ‘page 14’. These are small things that do not prevent the modeller from building any of the aircraft depicted, but are worthy of note. All three sheets in this PR Spitfire series should also become available in 1:48 scale.
