Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Mk.I ‘Dunkirk-Eternal landing’

July 5, 2018 · in Aviation · · 16 Comments

Hello modelers,
This work represents an impressive scene of the movie "Dunkirk".
It is possible to reproduce the precise cockpit well even if it is painted well with no photo-etched parts.
The kits fit very well, but the surface is somewhat empty and the rivets are engraved with rivet rollers.
I used stencils to mark all the markings, including the roundel and the code letter, to reproduce the plane in the movie.
Thank you for your interest and watching.

      I put a brass rod into the landing gear to fix the plane to the base.

  7. Can’t agree more. Excellent work. Nice work on the cockpit. I hate working with PE parts myself and you nailed it.

  8. Lovely build, Jonghwan. Great eye for detail and a nice 'feel' of that never ending glide in the movie, you even match the lighting of the scene. Liked.
