  1. Después de ver tu Spitfire creo que me pasaré a la escala 1/48 sin pensarlo más.Me parece un trabajo muy elegante de pintura con los desgastes adecuados.Buen trabajo Bogdan !.

  2. Bogdan, your Spitfire is a beauty, a fine example of a balanced build...great paintwork, those shades are spot on to my eye. I definitely will try a Airfix Spitfire one of these days. Thanks for posting

  3. Wow, the original (1970s) kit. Beautiful work on this.

  4. An absolute beauty Bogdan. I visited Malta about 4 years back and read a couple of books on Screwball while I was there! This is exactly how I pictured his planes - nicely weathered, often shared with others and looking like they’d been in a fight. A real part of RAF history. The siege of Malta represents a lot of what the RAF were all about - defying odds with pure bravery. Not of course to forget the Victoria Cross awarded to the Island of Malta for its stoic resistance and absolute courage under siege!

  5. Nicely done Bogdan, really looks the part.

  6. Very nice. Love the subtle weathering.

  7. Excellent build - love the desert scheme on the Spit. Well done!

  8. Thanks guys!
    A pleasent kit to build.

  9. One word: niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.
