I had this half built Otaki 1/48th scale Spitfire stashed in my shelf of doom, until I saw on the internet a guy from Melbourne who scratch built some 1/32 aircraft (Spitfire, Messerschmitt and MiG 15) into some sort of race cars. I liked the idea and decided to do something similar using my old Spitfire.
I’ve used wheels from and scrapped MiG 25 kit and also from an old Italeri VW166 in 1/35th. The rest of the parts were sourced from my spare parts box.
Painting made using a mix of Tamiya and Gunze acrylics. Weathering using various mediums. Decals came from an ancient RAAF decal sheet and took ages to come out of the paper.
I hope you like the results. It was really fun to build.
