Eduard 1/48th Spitfire Mk.IXc
June 30, 2016 in Aviation
This is the January Random Award Prize from iModeler. Thanks Martin! It is also my answer to the Airfix 1/48 Hawker Hurricane shot my friend Scott sent my way in April (http://imodeler.com/2016/04/airfix-148-hawker-hurricane/).
This is a great kit with great molding and lots of fine subtle details. Even without Eduard’s Profitpack PE and masks, it builds up into an awesome aircraft. It required an absolute minimal amount of filling and sanding. Even the decal instrument panel turned out fantastic with some setting solution. I painted it with AK Interactive acrylics from their RAF CAMOUFLAGES set. The weathering was applied with MIG pigment powders and oil paints.
