Tamiya Spitfire XVI done


Recommended Posts

All done with this one. The art and photos I have show it in a very weathered condition. I didn't want to do that so I made it as it might look before all the weathering. Just some moderate weathering, etc. After market includes Barracudacast wheels and Kagero decals. Painted with Xtracolor. I replaced the kit exhaust stubs with some from a Hasegawa P-40. I think they are a bit more accurate. Bear with me while I get used to my new camera! I hope y'all like it. B)

Very beautiful Spitfire John ,I like the paintjob. Very tempted to build a XVI  in 1/32 as well.

Cheers Rob 


Thank you Rob. It's a nice kit and a easy build but markings, etc are a little limited. I'd recommend getting the Kagero book, which comes with decals, before starting a build. :)

Spot on, there's something about the late war markings that are really attractive to me and that is just right, as to weathering used but not abused is the way to go for me.





I'm glad you like it. Thanks! :)

I was never a big fan of clipped wing Spitfires, but you've gone a long way toward changing my mind. Well done, John!

Thanks Bill! I'm pleased you like the results of my efforts. :)
