Supermarine Spitfire Mk1 'LO-B, 602Sqn, 1940 (Tamiya 1:72)
As beautiful as the Spitfire is when its all 'buttoned up', I wanted to depict one stripped down as if in maintenence. This was a real challenge in such a small scale but I think it worked. The base is hand-made from Beech and I used cork padding with static grass.
