Airfix 1/24 spitfire modified

October 22, 2017 in Aviation

This is a first post and an attempt to show my recently completed Airfix 1/24 Spitfire modified to a mark IX or something that approximately resembles the type. By no means accurate, but an attempt to work for the first time with resin, print some of my own decals and spray some of my own squadron identification and a few other bits. The stubby bits next to the cannons are cut from a 220V European style plug. My son asked why my props never turn, so I added this as well. An amateuristic attempt for sure, but I enjoyed the build.

  1. Great looking Spitfire. Welcome to iModeler.

  2. Sure looks good from here, my friend…welcome aboard, sir.

  3. Wow super cool Spitfire, welcome aboard.
    N.

  4. Very nice spitty, and good to see a ‘wheels up’ build!

  5. That looks really nice. Is it really motorized for the prop spin effect?

  6. Nice work, love the spinning prop.

  7. Looks nice. the only discrepancy I see is that you have the cannon bulges in the Mk.V position rather than the Mk.IX position, Don’t take that as a complaint. You’ve done some major work to accomplish this.

    • Yes correct, I decided to not do too much with the wing. The nose surgery was a major undertaking which required extensive recovery on my part. Thanks for your feedback though!

  8. Welcome to iModeler and that’s a good looking Spit.

  9. Welcome aboard !!! I agree this is a great looking Spitfire …………… I like the spinning prop too. Well done.

  10. Great job on the big Airfix Spitfire. Spinning prop is a nice addition too.
