Spitfire Mk.Ia (Airfix 1/72)

April 8, 2017 · in Aviation · · 12 Comments

One of my iModeler Random Awards boxes has been finished – 's Mk.Ia. I've pick this interesting scheme from ModelMaker decal sheet – airplane from No. 303 ("Kościuszko") Polish Fighter Squadron in RAF, 1941. Except "super fabric" seat belts from Eduard (which are not visible, because it's Spitfire in 1/72 scale!) this is completely OOB build.

Painted mainly with AKAN acrylics, weathered with Vallejo washes and pigments.

Thank you for watching!

    Nice work Dmitry

  3. That's a beautiful Spitfire Dmitry... I really like it.

  4. Nothing like a great Spit...or a Zippo.

  5. Another great looking model Dmitry!

  6. Lovely model, Dmitry, do you use the lighter to make stretched sprue?

  7. Nicely done Dmitry, looks good.

  8. There used to be a guy who advertised in Finescale, selling wire to rig model airplanes. His slogan was "Quit stretching plastic sprue, you'll go blind!" Interesting marketing ploy.

  9. Me, too Dmitry. I remember once when I was a younger guy I used my Mothers sewing thread. Scaled up, it would have been hawser for a sailing ship. But I was proud!
