D-Day +5. 1/48 Spitfire IXc
June 11, 2014 in Aviation
Admiring all of your great D-Day builds made me realize that I only have one D-Day aircraft in the collection. Work kept me from posting it until today. It is an Otaki Mk.VIII converted into a “faux” Mk. IX. I replaced the kit’s pointed rudder with a spare standard rudder from a Hasegawa Mk. VII kit. It was finished with Humbrol enamels and Eaglestrike decals.
The things we used to have to do to get a Mk. IX before the great Eduard kit was released!
