1:32 Mk.IIa
(Backdated to Mk.Ia)
QV-K P9386 19 Sqn Pilot S/L Brian Lane and F/L Walter Lawson
Kit: Revell 1:32 Spitfire Mk.IIa
Decals: EagleCal EC#157
Paint: AK Interactive
Sundries: Mig AMMO Washes, Weathering System, HGW Harness, Aires cockpit PE & Wheels, Barracuda Oil Cooler, Top Notch Camo Masks

I'm really impressed with this kit, Revell have done us proud for the cost. Okay I have thrown a few extra at it that tripped the price but I'm really happy with the way she turned out. My first time using camo masks and I really must thank Sean Middleton who supplied me with the masks and quite a bit of help in using them. I really can recommend them, so much easier than Whitetac 'worms'.

The EagleCal decals were on the thick side and need a few coats of Mr Mark Softener to get them to pull down.

  1. Hey Michelle. Another good looking build. Nice to see this Revell kit builds up so well.

  2. Never tried those "camo masks", but they sure look like they worked! And a 32nd scale build to boot. Must have seemed gargantuan compared to what you're used to, huh?

  3. That looks really nice!

  4. Outstanding job on an outstanding kit. Would like to know what you did to convert it back to a Mk.I aside from leaving off the Coffman starter bulge (did you have to scribe the small hatch for the trolly accumulator?). I would also like too know what extras you used and how well they worked. Also, did you use the camouflage masks from AML? I used them on my 1/32 Spitfire and they worked beautifully. Once again, nice work

  5. Very nice model, love all grime and the faded colours. All yellow markings and spinner makes this an eye catcher.

  6. Wow, that really stands out! Maybe 1/32 is your scale, eh?

  7. Excellent result, Michelle ! I am really looking forward to your coming 109

  8. Great looking Spit! Nice finish and weathering.

  9. Nice job, Michelle! Perfect paint work. I'm about 75% done with one right now. It is a fun kit. I've added the Barracuda seat/armor, ailerons, radiator, oil cooler, some Eduard brass. I normally build in 1/48 and don't add all these extras but like you, thought this kit was worth it. I hope to post mine in a week or two. Again, nice work and thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks, yes used the barracuda seat and oil cooler, was going to use the door as well but modified the kit part and saved the door for another build. Some Eduard in there as well, but not as much as some people have used. I also used the Eduard Brassin wheels.
