Brengun 1/72 scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb Floatplane

I just finished this for the .

It's the kit with the brengun Photoetch set for the cockpit and the ladder on the side. I also took the exhaust and oil cooler from a sword kit. The paints are all xtracrylix. I also used Eduard Super Fabric seatbelts.

5 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. Nice build...a unique version not seen all that much (I like it).

  2. Looks good Ken, different and nicely done.

  3. Nicely done, Ken. Great seat! LOVE the floatplanes, especially the Spit-floater. Now you need a picture of this one next to a picture of the Supermarine floatplane. Kind of a Father/Son thing. Two generations of awesome!

  4. Unique and superb finish.

  5. Well done Ken, looks great.

  6. Great build, excellent seat detail.

  7. Great build and finish. Looks excellent, especially in 1/72!

  8. Something about the Spitfire on floats just looks "right". Maybe because of lineage with the Supermarine racer because a Beaver or Cessna on floats doesn't look this elegant!

  9. Ken, not too many aircraft still look fast with floats attached, as this does !, Nice work on this little gem !

  10. Wow, really good, beautiful finish.
