Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk. IXc

Hello again! This is Eduard’s magnificent Spitfire Mk. IXc Profipack edition. I have never built a more satisfying and well engineered kit! Built OOB and photographed at the same time as my Hurricane. I also played with the pics a bit in Photoshop to try and get a vintage look.

If you like Spitfires, then I highly recommend this kit!

  1. Hi Ramon. I really, really, really like this Spitfire. The build is superb, it’s wearing one of the best schemes for a Spitfire, the weathering is subtle and expertly done, and the photographs are excellent. A beautiful presentation, sir. Those black and white photos are stunning.

    Thanks for sharing, Ramon!

  2. Well done Ramon, beautifully photographed as well.

  3. A beautiful Spit to go with the Hurricane. Lovely finish work and detailing.

  4. Very nice results with the two builds and the pics, Ramon…good work!

  5. Nice result, Ramon. As Greg mentioned, a worthy companion piece to the Hurricane.

  6. Very nice, Ramon. That is my favorite kit of all time. How did you do the exhaust staining? It’s very realistic.

    • Thanks John! for the exhaust staining, first i used some grey pastel powders and rubbed them on with a paint brush. Next, i used some black exhaust weathering powder and did the same, but in a smaller area so that the outer grey bit would still show through. I used the tutorial from the book Ammo of Mig Encyclopedia of Aircraft-VOL.4 Weathering. I highly recommend it!

  7. Another cracker. Very nice.

  8. Talk about Battle of Britain Superstars! Outstanding pair, Ramon.

  9. Excellent work, the surface finish is superb.

  10. Ramon, can I ask what you used as a final finish to the surface?

  11. Beautiful realization !

  12. Ramon, Beautiful work. I really like the looks of this one. I also took note of your paint tip above, (thanks for sharing) !

  13. Expertly done in all respects, Ramon. Love it!
