Tamiya new tool 1:48 Spitfire Mk.Ia
one of the best kits i’ve ever built, of my all time favorite aircraft. Ingenious engineering, flawless fit and detail throughout.
I’ve modeled it as X4330, QJ*G, 0f no.616 Squadron (South Yorkshire), September 1940, thought to have been flown by P/O J E Johnson.
all roundels and codes are masked and painted. Data is from BarracudaCal decals. Paints are Mr. Color and Mission Models (Dark Earth and Dark Green). Paper masks were used for the upper camouflage demarcations. Added details include HGW cloth sutton harness , QuickBoost cockpit entry door (with crowbar brackets removed) and gun sight, added wiring in the cockpit and for the main gear legs. aerials are Uschi fine elastic thread.
