Tamiya 1/48 Supermarine Spitfire Mk I

April 5, 2013 in Aviation

My first time posting here so I thought I would share one I built some time ago. This is the Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk I with a Cutting Edge resin cockpit. I added some scratch-built details and finished her with Floquil Military Color enamels and Aeromaster Warbird enamels. The Cutting Edge cockpit is a practical drop-in that required just a little sanding toward the bottom of the cockpit sidewalls so that the lower wing would sit correctly.
