The Great LSM Twins Group Build ends July 3, 2024 ×

Dutch Decal's Spitfire LF Mk.IXc, LSK, 322 Sqn, Netherlands' East Indies, 1948


Recommended Posts

Been playing a little with my new studio lights and selected the 1/32 Spitfire built by Luuk from Dutch Decal as the victim!

JPG's straight from the camera, no tweaking. I'm not completely satisfied with the results yet. But enough about photographing; on to the model:

Hi Tim, no, it's a post-war scheme. In 1946 322 Sqn went to the Nethrlands East Indies to join in the fighting against the nationalists from Sukarno and the Jihadis who wanted to found a Muslem state.

 

The original RAF scheme was at last overpainted with a dark green colour named Jungle Green, the undersides were painted a light blue grey. On this Spitfire a second topcolour of grey was added. This was the sole example, the rest stayed in Jungle Green. This aircraft also had an anti-dazzle area of Olive Drab that the others didn't have.
