Airfix 1/72 Spitfire Mk I from February 2015.

January 10, 2016 · in Aviation · · 6 · 1.4K

Painted with Humbrol, Testors and Model Master Enamels, rust colors in exhausts from Life Color.
Seat from Quickboost and photoetched Ring and Bead sight from Eduard.
Improvements in control surfaces, propeller axle, brass aerial post and painted insignias and codes. Cockpit and wheel bays colors were an educated guess. I also decided on a different machine than the proposed one in the kit´s instructions.
Since this model is depicting a prewar machine I kept the weathering to a minimum.
