1/32 Tamiya Spitfire Mk IXc

It has been a while since I have posted a build in progress. Almost a few years if I recall correctly or is seems so.
The club that I belong to has a D-Day invasion anniversary build going on and the this transfers to the club’s contest to be held here in Oklahoma march 30th. I figured that I would go with Johnny Johnson’s ride that Tamiya has as the box art. I have previously built the cockpit and assembled it into the fuselage, built the engine and assembled the wing and painted the underside Tamiya RAF Sky. After it cures over night I will start the invasion stripes in accordance to a photo that I have seen..

One of the things that I have done that really boosted my mojo is a change of paints. Instead of using Vallejo I went to Tamiya and I just ordered s few bottles of Gunze Aqueous. I am really excited about the out come of these paints. Anyway, thanks for looking in.
By the way, I am aware that the Harness isn’t a Sutton harness. The only decent one that I had was a left over Tempest harness. You know what they say about necessity.

  1. Excellent progress, Paul….then again, you have an excellent kit from which to start. 🙂

  2. Love the detail in the cockpit, this looks like its going to be a winner.

  3. Very well done, Paul. I love the amount of detail available in the 1/32nd scale. Your painting of the interior is outstanding.

    Bravo!

  4. I tried to get the wings painted this weekend but I chose the incorrect colors and had to remove them ( colors) and order the correct ones today. Back at it later.

  5. Looking great Paul! Lovely pit as always. Can’t believe you bailed on Vallejo after getting me hooked on them!
