Spitfire Mk.Ia (Airfix 1/72)

April 8, 2017 in Aviation

One of my iModeler Random Awards boxes has been finished – Airfix’s Spitfire Mk.Ia. I’ve pick this interesting scheme from ModelMaker decal sheet – airplane from No. 303 (“Kościuszko”) Polish Fighter Squadron in RAF, 1941. Except “super fabric” seat belts from Eduard (which are not visible, because it’s Spitfire in 1/72 scale!) this is completely OOB build.

Painted mainly with AKAN acrylics, weathered with Vallejo washes and pigments.

Thank you for watching!

  1. You keep doin’ two things, Dmitry….crankin’ out really nice builds and puttin’ that damn lighter in the pictures to make me jealous. 🙂

  2. That’s a beautiful Spitfire Dmitry……………………… I really like it.

  3. Nothing like a great Spit…or a Zippo.

  4. Another great looking model Dmitry!

  5. Lovely model, Dmitry, do you use the lighter to make stretched sprue?

  6. Nicely done Dmitry, looks good.

  7. There used to be a guy who advertised in Finescale, selling wire to rig model airplanes. His slogan was “Quit stretching plastic sprue, you’ll go blind!” Interesting marketing ploy.

  8. Me, too Dmitry. I remember once when I was a younger guy I used my Mothers sewing thread. Scaled up, it would have been hawser for a sailing ship. But I was proud!
