Tamiya Spitfire MkVB Trop 1/48

October 27, 2014 in Aviation

HI all, here’s my latest.
Major Levine’s Spitfire VB. Hope you like. Decal sheet said it was a VC, but upon doing research and talking with others, I was happy to see it was in fact a VB. No need for a new VC wing. ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s heavily weathered, due to the photos of the real airplane, showing this.
Thanks for looking,
Paul, in Australia

  1. AWESOME Paul. Like your Spit. Motivation to build my Special Hobby Vb.

  2. Great Spit on a great dio Paul. That this Mk.V is “b” is very good news, got the same decal sheet but have no “c”. Is the source for that available ?
    Well done ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I couldn’t tell the difference between a ‘b’ or a ‘c’, but this looks good whatever it is. Very nice diorama and good looking Spitfire.

  4. That is so cool. How did you do the ground work?

  5. Nice job, Paul. A great looking vignette. Any plans for figures?

  6. Very interesting composition.

    Best regards, Vlad.

  7. pretty cool diorama, and i love the weathering on your spitfire – great work!

  8. Nicely presented, Paul….love the setting. Can’t go wrong with anything Tamiya.

  9. Nice looking diorama Paul.
    Like the Me 109 in the background.

  10. Very nice Paul. Spitfires always seem to look good in desert camouflage & yours proves it! Like your diorama too!
