1/48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk. V

December 1, 2021 · in Aviation · · 14 · 1.6K

A fun kit with virtually no issues, built out of the box with masks and decals from Montex for this livery, paints and hand-made masks for the camo scheme. Some light weathering with soft-pastels blended along the panel lines with a soft brush that left behind a dusty look, which I think is the main idea for a fighter in North Africa. All in all a keeper for my collection.
