1/48 Spitfire Mk.XII converted from Tamiya Mk.V
January 20, 2013 in Aviation
Here is one of my old stories from the past. I did not checked my notes but probably this was my first converted model including some surgery and inexperience. This is Spitfire Mk.12 with the markings of 41 st squadron ( EB-B MB 882 ) flown by Lt.Donald Smith during 1944.
Tamiya’s MkVb converted to Mk.12c by using “Paragon Mk.12 conversion” and “Airwaves C wing” sets.
I’ve used Eduard RAF seat belts in the cockpit. The painting was done with Gunze and Tamiya acrylics.
