Tamiya 1/48 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb 81 sq 1942

February 18, 2015 in Aviation

Model im build from the box with Addition decals from generic xtradecal codes and serial & rundels paint Xtracolor.
I realized as soon as the Tamiya kit on sale near 20 year ago.
I decided that I share with you before it goes on sale.
And replaced by the new Airfix …a dozen … in preparation.

  1. I prefer the line-wash of panel lines to pre-shading, as it is more subtle if handled correctly. A good looking Spitfire.

  2. Great shot of the belly showing the detail & weathering.

  3. Beautiful !!!! Something about a Spitfire just sets it apart from all other WW II fighters. You captured THAT look perfectly. Well done!!!

  4. Nice work, the paint scheme nails it.

  5. Neat work, P.k. surely you are not going to part with it?
