Beyond being historically important aircraft, Spitfires are just beautiful.
I find that their iconic design emerges best with the desert camouflage, especially with the color scheme of the Polish Fighting Team. Possibly this is because of the blue numbers giving complemantary colors with the orange tones of the camouflage.
EN315 ‘ZX-6’ was flown by the unit’s Commanding Officer, Squadron Leader Stanisław Skalski in spring and early summer 1943. Making a model of his aircraft, I sacrificed some authenticity at less important parts, as I feel, in order to capture as much as possible from the esthetics that lies in its design.
The model is the outstanding 1/32 of Tamiya, not the first one around here.
Paints are acrylics from Tamiya and Gunze and metalizers from Alclad 2.
