    A very nice looking Spitfire.

  4. Outstanding! Love me a Spitfire, especially in the Dk. Green Dk. Earth scheme. A very clean build Hans.

  5. Very nice Spitfire, Hans.

  6. Love it mate. Nice job.

  7. Not a criticism, since I am sure the kit instructions and the decal instructions never mentioned this, but on 15 August 1941, the RAF went over from the Dark Green/Dark Earth/Sky camouflage to Dark Green/Ocean Grey/Sea Grey Medium camouflage paints. Many of the DG/DE airplanes were field painted in a mixture of Night Black and White, which varied wildly in shade of grey from unit to unit till they started getting factory-painted replacements.

    Not to worry though, Robert Taylor got this wrong in his Eagle Squadron painting, which has them in October 1941 in the earlier scheme. 🙂

    HTH for those doing Spitfires.

    Nice work on the model, Hans Peter.

  12. Hans Peter,
    I love it. The Spitfire to me, is like the Corsair. I have never seen one that I did not like. Yours is outstanding.
