Tamiya Spitfire Mk.IX. 1/32nd. scale.
March 24, 2013 in Aviation
As much as I love Spitfires, this one took me rather a long time; six month, give or take & I completed a few others while I was having a break. Lovely detail & fit & absolutely spot on for shape & proportion. I kept the cowlings closed as I like to preserve the ‘ready to go’ lines of my aircraft models. The only scratch built items were the ribs on the entry hatch & a metal crowbar. There is a Mk.VIII in my cupboard along with a Mustang -Same scale, same manufacturer. We’ll see if they get to the top of the pile by year’s end.
Hope you like it.
