1/32 Tamiya Mk.XVI Spitfire 'Rongotea' 485 Sqdn (RNZAF)


Recommended Posts

This was my first published article that I ever did.. It appeared in the September 2011 issue of Military Illustrated Modeller magazine...

 

Cockpit had wiring and hydraulic lines added (this was before Barracuda's Sidewall upgrade set was on the market), Eduard's Late Mk.IX harness and some of Interior PE set was used. I also added Barracuda's fantastic Cockpit upgrade set, Padded Seat and access door and 4 slot wheels. This scheme is included in the Tamiya boxing, but its incorrect. I was lucky and was able to contact the pilot's son, and he confirmed with me with the correct serial number that I had found during my research. All the markings were painted on with custom paint masks made from Miracle Masks

 

Hope you like!
