repeater Posted August 13, 2013 Share Posted August 13, 2013 Hi All, Time to get started. I'll (slowly) build the Tamiya Spitfire Mk.VIII, in RAAF markings, 79 Squadron - either 'Hava Go Jo!!' or 'Avagrog'. 79 Squadron was formed in 1943, originally equipped with Vc's before replacement with VIII's. In 1944-45 they were based in Morotai (now Indonesia) and conducted a variety of operations (fighter sweeps, bomber escort, strafing, but mostly ground attack and attacking Japanese installations, etc). Colour schemes for RAAF spitfires seem to generate a lot of debate - however I don't have any special knowledge so I'll be following conventional wisdom (or.. maybe just reputable decal instructions !>?! ) Here's the kit.. I'll be using aftermarket from BarrracudaCast: BR32001 - Seat with leather backpad BR32003 - Cockpit upgrade set (stick, throttle etc. includes cockpit stencils) BR32002 - Door with separate crowbarand of course BR32010 - wheels: Z-block 4 slot mainwheels (for Australian Spitfire VIII's) Aftermarket pic.. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
