Spitfire Mk Vb KP 1/72

Here is a little Spitfire, a MkVb, the kit is from Kovozavody Prostejov. This was the plane of Squadron Leader James Rankin, 92. Squadron at Biggin Hill in 1941.
The cockpit, which is fairly well detailed, does not include photoetching. The canopy beeing closed, this point does not bother me. I spend more time making the harnesses with aluminum tape.
The elevators have been cut, to be lowered as the plane is on the ground with no pilot on board.
This is a model that I recommend, the quality of the kit being very good and requiring only a few small modifications.
Hope you will like it !

  1. Have to agree, the kit seems very nice indeed. Not my scale, otherwise I would try it. That a little Spitfire gem, well done

  2. Excellent paint job! Keep up the good work.


  3. Really nice little build, love the weathering 🙂

  4. It’s a solid ‘Here, here’ from me. I was at RAF Wildenrath with 92, their mounts were a little bigger and definitely noisier! (Phantoms!)

  5. Looks great, nicely done!

  6. That’s a real beauty, and in my chosen scale! Love the trio. Excellent paint and weathering work.

    @jeromechapelle model looks good! Do you used decals from the box?

  8. Stunning build, what green did you use? It looks superb.

  9. Hi Robert, i used Vallejo Dark Green 71.324, on black base and after layers of Dark Earth and some mid-grey were applied…

  10. Thankyou for the quick reply. That is extremely detailed and perfectly weathered. Thankyou for sharing.
