1/32nd Spitfire MkIIa - Revell

March 5, 2017 · in Aviation · · 15 Comments

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 are about to release to go with this one.

The model depicts P8088 of 118Sqn during April 1941.

  2. Very nice! And isn't this is the newer Revell kit, released maybe 2 years ago, not their old one from the 60s?

    Nice work.

  11. Thanks for the compliments, gentlemen.

    To answer Rob's and Tom's questions on the age of the tooling - this is the recent release from a couple of years ago. It's a great little kit!

  12. Tom,
    I envy you with Spitfires flying overhead. All I will say about this build is that it is absolutely beautiful. You make the overhead Spits proud.

  13. Absolutely lovely job Tom.

  14. Lovely work Thomas!
