  1. Nice work Jesus - love the aussie colours!

  2. Great work, Jesus. That is a top tier kit and you made the most of it.

  3. Love it, Jesus!
    Excellent allover, AMAZING weathering!

  4. I love those S. Pacific schemes, and the paint and weathering work is fantastic! Well done.

  5. Thanks for your opinion, my friends.

  6. Fantastic Spitfire, Jesus.
    The scheme and weathering is very nice.
    Also the detailing of the cockpit is beautiful.

  7. One of the best Aussie Spitfires I have seen done. I really like the weathering.

  8. G'day Jesus (@jhermosellcordob),

    A great build of an Aussie Spit.

    I am in the process of building the very same aircraft from the "Aussie Eight" boxing (along with a second shark-mouthed aircraft).

    Is that the kit you used?

    I ask because I feel that the grey of the elephant decal looks too dark on the sheet, but yours is fine.

    Also, how did you achieve the weathering on the white? That's not something I've done before, so any tips would be useful.

    Love the build!

    • Hi Michael, Eduard's kits are all the same, only the decals change. For the white weathering I used Vallejo chipping medium. You can see tutorials on YouTube. I applied it with a brush because it stuck to the airbrush

  9. Beautifully done!

  10. Thank you for the photos of different aspects of the model...especially the cockpit.
