  1. Looks rather tasty, then again it is a Spitfire, keep up the good work. Cheers Dennis
  2. Yes that is my approach as well, at the moment the Spitfire is in the paint shop so I am doing prep work on the next "masterpiece" while I am waiting between coats. Cheers Dennis
  3. This from Edgar the late Spitfire expert in a Britmodeller thread about the crowbar. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/48160-another-spit-question/ Posted 25 April 2010 - 08:43 PM On the door 23-1-42; before that (3-2-41) beside the seat (right side,) and it could have been plain steel, bronze green, or black, never red (until post-war.) Edgar It was retro-fitted, to all Marks, but not until those dates. Edgar Cheers Dennis
  4. Lots of information about this one over on Britmodeller, here's a link, it does mention a Techmod decal sheet as well. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235084090-spitfire-ix-uf-q/ Cheers Dennis
  5. Hi Peter, I think the armour plate on all Spitfires was IG, and on the XVI the area under the canopy was camouflage, below is a modern photo but it gives you the idea, just ignore the modern red crowbar. Cheers Dennis
  6. Just got this from Ukraine via Hannants, looks good Cheers Dennis
  7. Coming along nicely, I must build one of those Tamiya Spitfires some day, I have a few in the stash waiting for me. Cheers Dennis
  8. That looks terrific John, a testimony to your skill and perseverance, and it makes me a bit more confident about building mine, which after reading reviews of the kit I was not so sure of. Cheers Dennis
  9. In real life that Spitfire amazed me, for years I drove passed it when it was a "Gate Gardian" at RAF Sealand near where I live, sitting out in all that the weather could do to it, then it disapeared only to resurface in airworthy condition. They did a fantastic restoration job on it, and your rendition looks great. Cheers Dennis
  10. Flaps up and elevators down would be the norm. Cheers Dennis
  11. Hi Peter, I do not have much information on this subject but there was a Britmodeller thread about it, https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235072060-heller-spitfire-xvi-identity/ Cheers Dennis
  12. Painted on markings are definately the way to go, once you have got the "knack" you will not go back to decals. Cheers Dennis
  13. That looks great, I'm looking forward to seeing the masks come off. Cheers Dennis
  14. That looks great, after I finish my current builds I might go on a USN 3 kit theme and include the SB2C. Cheers Dennis
