Another one Spitfire FR Mk.XIV (Airfix 1/48)
I know, I know, but I just can’t stop building Spitfires, and it’s another one in the headlines from my side – a new Airfix FR Mk.XIV. I was waiting for this kit to appear in my local hobby shop, and here is the result. Spitfires are my most frequent subject to build, and maybe I will buy another one if Airfix will release a version in RAAF markings. Just in case.
I don’t see a reason to talk about the kit itself – it’s a modern Airfix, and if you ever have built one of them, you know how it is. The only thing which should be improved – fishtail exhausts. In addition, I’ve added plastic seat belts by FineMolds (looks nice, but …) and resin wheels.
Painted with AK Real Colors paints mixed with odorless Hataka thinner (Orange line). Black basing, marbling, and a little bit of oil afterwards.
Thanks for watching!
