GazzaS Posted March 15 Share Posted March 15 Hi guys, This is my first Spitfire since the monogram kit I built in 1978 or 79. So be patient... I'll try not to paint the cockpit in RLM 66. Anyway... enough with my bio and habits... Let's dry fit. You'll notice how the light passes through the plastic. The trailing edges are rapier thin. Even with the wing taped together, light passes through. But the flaps are molded 'up' for you. The fuel tank cover was a little reticent to fit... this is the only trimming I did to get stuff to fit. I widened the hole by the arrow with a hobby blade. The wing fillets have to be attached to the wing to attach the fuselage... otherwise, the contact area is very tiny. Somebody will wonder about this area... This looks really 'stepped' at the moment. Tape just can't do what Tamiya extra thin can. The closed canopy is friction fitted... The wing roots are a joy to behold... Likewise the fit of the tailplane. The aft fuselage has a lot of surface detail... Anyway... that's it for now. Pretty awesome, eh? 14 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
