Airfix 1/48 Seafire 17 (repost)

May 22, 2014 in Aviation

I just took a few better pics and posted them. Again, it’s a great kit straight from the box. I painted it with Humbrol enamels including my last tins of Humbrol Authentics Slate Grey and Extra Dark Sea Grey. I must have had these tins since 1977-78, great paint! I just added Eduard belts, no other aftermarket. The decals performed flawlesslysandwiched between Future coats. I finished the a/c off with Humbrol semi-matte clear enamel.

  1. Looks good John. Lot of different colors.

  2. Damn I’ve always had a weakness for those tear drop canopied Spits. Very nice, love the scheme.

  3. Very nice. Excellent work.

  4. Wow, that’s a nice looking Spitfire ,well done.

  5. Nice! I’ve just started mine.

    • Thanks Gregor. I’m looking forward to seeing yours. I enjoy seeing these new Airfix Spitfires/Seafires being built. It is a surprisingly heavy model when done and I was a bit worried about the gear, but it’s held up well for two years now.

  6. Really nice John ! Thanks again for the exciting build !

  7. Just plain beautiful. Nice clear pictures too! It’s good to see another FAA model & especially of a Seafire.

  8. Thanks Tony! We can never have too many Seafires.

  9. Very nice build of a beautiful aircraft.

  10. John,
    Absolutely beautiful. I like the model and love the scheme. Great job.
