Spitfire F.24 – A ‘What If’ build
October 3, 2015 in Aviation
Like most folks (especially aviation modellers) in the hobby, I’ve built a number of ‘What If’ projects over the years.
When I do them, I tend to do them as ‘relatively possible’, I’m not one for building rocket-powered Sopwith Camels’ in lo-vis Lithuanian markings. A lot of my ‘What Ifs’ have had back-stories of varying complexities but this isn’t one of them.
I picked-up this (superb) Airfix 1:48 Spitfire F.24 a few years ago for very little money and I knew away back then ‘EXACTLY’ how it was going to look – and so here it is, a post-war French Air Force machine wearing bright ‘pre-war’ style squadron heraldry and not too weathered. The paint is all Humbrol & Xtracolour enamels, the decals from various Carpena sheets and I enjoyed every minute of it. And lets be honest, isn’t the enjoyment the point of our hobby ??.
Thanks for taking the time to look and or comment, please feel free to ask any questions make any comments or post any criticisms.
