Spitfire F Mk.22

October 3, 2015 in Aviation

The last of Spitfires – Mk.22, 1/72 Airfix kit. This is completely OOB build – I’ve only added position lights, seat belts and drilled exhausts. Decal sheet has a lot of stencils. By the way – not one of the best Airfix kit that I’ve built – surface is not smooth at some areas, wing’s parts fit not good.

This Spitfires were painted with High Speed Silver lacquer, so no NMF look or panel effects. I’ve used Alclad II lacquer for this one. Weathered with oils and Tamiya pigments.

  1. Dmitry, The MK 22, is one of my favorite looking aircraft and your work here looks great. I didn’t realize it was 1/72 scale at first. I like this one a lot.

  2. A marvelous effort on this one. This is a superb looking model of an equally impressive aircraft. Well done Dimitri !!

  3. Fantastic work in that (or any) scale. The finish came out great (just like that lighter….wish I had one).

  4. Another stunning build, Dimitry. Superb 🙂

  5. A Spitfire is a Spitfire Dmitry.
    Great finish and weathering.
    Well done mate.

  6. Dmitry, really a lovely build! Love them Spitfires!

  7. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    You did a very nice job on that finish, looks great.

  8. very nice build, i like it very much. Well done Dmitry.

  9. Very very nice. If there was any problem with that kit, “some modeling ability required” certainly took care of it.

  10. Thank you for your comments friends!

  11. Well done

  12. Nice work, Dmitry.

  13. Great looking Spit – I’ve got this same kit and hope she turns out as well as yours!

  14. Nice work ! A slender metallic fighter.
