Spitfire Mk.I early (Airfix 1/72)
Spitfires, Spitfires everywhere… Maybe, somebody will say that this is boring – to post another one Spit, but I think that you can’t get too much Spitfires in your collection. And yes, that’s another one.
This model represents an early version of Spitfire with two-blade prop and “flat” canopy somewhere in August of 1938 at Duxford. I always wanted to have an early version of this aircraft in my collection, because it’s a root for all of the family of fires. Also, I like that black&white recognition scheme on a pre-war RAF airplanes.
This is completely OOB build, except “super-fabric” seat belts from Eduard. Painted with AKAN authentic acrylics. Also, I’ve tried lacquer-based Hataka varnishes – mat and gloss, and it’s more satisfying than any water-based acrylic varnishes that I’ve used before.
Thanks for watching!
