Airfix 1/48 Supermarine Seafire FR47
April 1, 2014 in Aviation
Here is my Seafire FR47, built from the Airfix kit. Built pretty much OOB with the addition of Barracuda resin cameras to fill in the empty spaces behind the clear camera ports. Paint was Floquil extra dark sea gray on the upper surfaces, and AeroMaster RLM84 for the fuselage sides and lowers. Stripes were masked and painted. This build only took five months instead of my usual decade or two.
The squadron letter “P” departed the left side of the fin sometime between decaling and final clear coat, I’ll get that back on as soon as I can find a replacement.
Thanks to everyone for their encouragement and support on this build, with special thanks to Neil and Seamus! It felt pretty good to get it done. And on April Fool’s Day, no less!
