MODEL maker David Price unveils his completed full-size replica Spitfire in his back garden — after demolishing a shed to make way for the wings.
He has been building it since 2018 and reckons it’s taken about 3,000 hours.

David, 58, who finished his labours on Saturday, says he has loved the World War Two fighter since he was a boy.
Measurements for the 33ft aircraft came from a book and materials were anything he could get his hands on, even a bottle top for a radiator cap.
David, of Carlisle, said: “Why do it? I ask myself the same thing.”
After he added the wings, wife Trish, 57, said: “He swears he won’t take on another project this big, but he will.”
