1/32nd Spitfire MkIIa – Revell
I fancied a quick and easy project and seeing Spitfires overhead daily during the summer months (I’m under the approach to Biggin Hill) I didn’t need much inspiration to dig this one out of the attic 🙂
This model simply fell together and was an absolute joy – construction of the main airframe only took a few evenings and I only used a smidgen of filler at the wing to fuselage join.
Decals were from EagleCal and I also added the MDC corrected spinner and oil cooler,to more accurately replicate a MkIIa.
All paints were Xtracolour enamels finished with Humbrol Matt Varnish.
I’m really looking forward to the MkIX that Revell are about to release to go with this one.
The model depicts P8088 of 118Sqn during April 1941.
