EDUARD 1:72 Spitfire MKVIII

April 23, 2019 · in Aviation · · 14 · 1.9K


This is my first post here, so I guess ill introduce myself first.

I am software developer from South Africa, I started this great hobby about 3 years ago. I like building anything from aviation to sci-fi but I really love 72nd scale planes.

I have recently completed this kit with the intention to enter it into this year's nationals. It was a long difficult build with 100s of parts, and I am very satisfied with the result.

Any comments and questions are welcome

  4. Great work, like others above I would thought you been building models for way longer than 3 years πŸ™‚ welcome to iModeler Vince!

  5. 72nd scale...?! I've seen 32nd scale Spits that weren't as well done (mine leaps to mind πŸ™ )

  8. wow - that kit was a tough build for me OOB, I can't imagine adding all the detail you have done and it coming out so nicely. Very inspiring! Love to see more of your work

  9. Outstanding build! Love the details, the paint and weathering - just a beautiful model, especially in 1/72. Since that's my only scale, I'm really pleased to see this type of craftsmanship. Well done, and welcome to the iModeler community!
