RAAF Spitfire Mk. VIII
This is a 1/48 Otaki kit built in 2002. I followed the Aeromaster decals painting instructions which stated that the Ocean Gray portions of this plane were over-sprayed with "Mixed Green". They described this green as a lighter version of interior gray-green. Not sure how true this is, but it adds variation to the display case! Aside from the lack of the underside gull-wing, this old kit still looks good.

Cool Aussie bird John! Lovely paint work too! How did you mask it?
I masked the camo with Blu-Tac and used Tamiya tape for the borders of the white areas and the underside border.
Lovely build of a favorite veteran kit, John. People will argue over the true colors of Norman Smithells' machine for eternity, but I find this scheme very attractive.
