Spitfire Mk,VIII (Arii 1/48)
Hello everyone. This is my first post, since I just landed.
I usually only build on 1/72, but I wanted to try to give this kit a go.
At present there are brands that manufacture Spits with a higher level, but otherwise it would never have been born.
The kit has good shapes but very bad details. All the interior belongs to a Tamiya’s kit Mk.V (for this one I have a set from Aires), and the fitting was perfect. I used the exhausts and landing gears from ICM kit, the sliding canopy is from Falcon, decals from Barracuda and is fully riveted.
I painted it with Gunze on upper surfaces and Vallejo Model Air on lower ones. The degree of operability is very subjective, but I always like to work with oils, and so I did also in this Spit.
I hope you like her. Best regards.
