Spitfire Mk V Malta finished


Recommended Posts

This is the OLD Hasegawa kit that has been on my shelf for a long time. I decided it was time to go on and build it. A VERY basic kit but accurate in outline and dimensions plus the parts fit okay. I replaced the kit cockpit with a Aires set which has much better detail, etc. Otherwise it's OOB except for the Xtradecal squadron markings and national markings from my decal stash. The Dark Mediterranean Blue undersides are Mr. Color Intermediate Blue which I think is fairly close. The uppers are Xtracolor while the interior is MM RAF Interior Grey Green. IĀ  found several different photos and art for this a/c and ALL were different. So I decided to build it like this with Volks filter and clipped wings. A easy build for sure. I hope you like it but, I have to say, I'm not entirely happy with it. For some reason it just doesn't appeal to me all that much. Go figure.......

Another awesome Spit in the books and being the old Hasegawa kit, it's so every sweeter. Paint work and finish is flawless.šŸ†
