Spitfire MKVIII RAAF (Otaki 1/48)
Here is something different for me. I usually build in 1/72nd scale but I had this old (70’s) Otaki/ARII 1/48th scale kit sitting in my stash and I decided to get it a go.
The kit show its age, but surprisingly it goes together pretty well. The interior is the worst part of the kit and I had to scratch build some details on the cockpit (nothing major).
Painted with Gunze aqueous acrylic paints and Mr Color lacquer for the underside RAAF blue.
Weathered using a selection of Tamiya accent panel, watercolour pencils and dry pastels.
Not been used to this scale I liked the way it looked at the end.
