AIRFIX 1:48 SPITFIRE MK.I (Kit Number A05115A)
I built this in tandem with the build I posted yesterday using the earlier and slightly easier to build kit. This is the other famous 57 OTU aircraft, LV⦿N, s/n AR212. I shamelessly copied from yesterdays article…Innards were painted with Tamiya XF-71 Cockpit Green. Masking tape harnesses. The bottom was painted with Tamiya XF-21 Sky. Upper colours were done with Tamiya XF-81 Dark Green 2 (RAF) and Mr. Hobby Aqueous H72 Dark Earth. The fuselage band is supposed to be Air Ministry Blue but we’ll call it Polly Scale RLM65. Antenna is Uschi van der Rosten Super-fine thread. With its stripey-nose brother JZ⦾E, s/n AR213
