“LET’S GET WET!” GROUP BUILD IS NOW ON. JAN 1, 2023 - July 1, 2023 ×

Tamiya Spitfire Mk IXc with aftermarket goodies and scratchbuilt


Recommended Posts

Sorry, I put the finished model on the progrees thread. Hope it's okay to post here too...

Here is the final result of my 1:32 Spit, not my usual scale - takes up too much space, and time, but I loved this one nevertheless.

 

Some details:

  • Extras used: Scratch built cockpit and engine plumbing, Barracuda cannon blisters, Barracuda Cockpit Upgrade set, Barracuda Seat, HGW fabric seat belts, HGW wet transfer stencils, Maketar wing roundel masks (but Tamiya decals for fuselage markings)
    Iconicair Rolls Royce name plates
  • Paints and colours used: Tamiya XF-81/82/83, Alclad copper, various Tamiya acrylics, Microscale/Lifecolor flat coat.

I aimed to expand my comfort zone with new products and techniques. Much has been said about this kit, so I won't go into detail, but it is, together with Tamiya's 1:32 P-51, the best kits I've ever built. Well worth it. Here are some pics. Thanks for looking guys!
