Spifire Mk.22, 1/72 Airfix.

The Last of the many, Spitfire Mk.22, to me the most pleasing to the eye. I knew this kit existed but didn’t realize it wasn’t being produced any more. I got this off ebay at a reasonable price. Another ‘new’ tool Airfix gem of a kit. built out of the box, kit decals. Tamiya rattle can gloss aluminum.

  11. Great job, Robert! You captured this sleek bird’s lines extremely well.
    All the best!

  12. Great looking Spit. With this all silver livery it really shows its clean lines.
    If I may make one suggestion: you may want to use a pin wash next time to accentuate the hinge lines?
    All the best
