Revell 1:32nd "IRON MAIDEN" Spitfire

August 7, 2022 · in Aviation · · 8 · 0.9K

So finally started on this beauty. Building OOB (i've a 1:100th Heller HMS VICTORY to start.)
Started on the "Eddies", and, as i've never done a figure, i'm quite pleased with the outcome. Only problem is, i cant get the seated one to fit.
Used Vallejo RAF colours and they are brilliant.
A couple of coats of gloss and will start the weathering tomorrow.
Hope you all like so far

  1. Looks amazing so far, Tony!

  2. Looks great! The group would approve!

  3. Top and side decals applied tonight (after I realised I'd missed the lower surface colour band around the fuselage, quick fix)
    Couple of coats of gloss, the the lower surfaces tomorrow evening.

  4. Slow but steady evening. Lower surface decals added. Decided I wanted the roundels AND the "Iron Maiden / Aces High" decals on (not as kit instructions) so a bit of careful placement and a LOT of micro-sol/set on the roundels. Thankfully they finally laid down properly.

  5. Finally. The roundels settled down. So, a little bit of weathering applied, followed by 2 matt coats. Should be finished in the next day

  6. Apart from making the mistake of not installing the pilot Eddie (ibroke his arm to make him sit on the wing, needs touching up) I'm calling this one FINISHED.
