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

Not another Tamiya Spitfire?

Recommended Posts

Yes, but with a difference. This is my build portraying one of the Spitfire IX's that were used by the RNethAF in the late fourties and early fifties. This particular aircraft still survives at the Military Aircraft Museum at Soesterberg in the Netherlands. it's in camouflage now but during the early fifties it was in silver overall.

Hope you like it.

I love clipped-wing Spits!

What'd you use for the NMF?

Hi Matt,

Revell Aqua aluminium with floorpolish (Parket+, a Dutch brand similar to Future) and Flory Models wash to finish it off.

I was very pleased with the result as it was my first. Dutch Spits were sprayed silver for skin protection against corrosion.

At that time these second hand airframes were quite tired.
