Spitfire Mk.Vb with DB605 engine, 1/48
This is my version of the Spitfire Mk.Vb that was re-engined by the Germans to make comparisons of the Merlin and DB engines
The story can be searched online, suffice it to say the Germans made some tests with the engine from a 110 and the propeller from a 109. I bought two different conversions, and ended up with the Fusion resin conversion for the Tamiya Spitfire Mk.V. The donor kit being a trop as the engine had to be removed anyway. There is a link to my full description below, so just lean back and enjoy the pictures
The Fusion resin came without decals, and they were taken from the other conversion I bought. The most enjoyful part of this build was all the comments, ideas and stuff given from fellow iModelers during the work over in the group-section. I highly recommend posting your build there as it progresses, it has been a real pleasure to enjoy the spirit there.
Now, if you want to see the next full build it is here; https://imodeler.com/groups/work-in-progress-aircraft/forum/topic/messermarine-spitschmitt-109-mk-vb/%5B/i%5D
