1/32 Tamiya Spitfire Mk.IXe with TuAF markings

December 23, 2022 · in Aviation · · 10 · 0.7K

Yet another tick to my bucket list. (This list seems a bit elastic but whatever..)
This is 1/32 Tamiya Mk.IXe with the markings of TuAF circa 1947-1948.
Thanks to Ozkan TURKER for the reference picture.

According to the sources I have, all TuAF Spitfire Mk.IXe's have clipped wing. It looks like this Mk.IXe (#6290) is the only one with classic wing.
I have used Barracudacast resin seat, Eduard seat belts and instrument panel.
Tamiya's Mk.IXc kit converted to E wing by using “Alley cat” conversion set.
Main wheels and Cockpit door replaced with Barracudacast goodies.
Paints are Gunze Sangyo and Tamiya acrylics.
Fuselage national insignias and flags on the tail are from Turquoise decals. National insignias on the wings are painted by masking.
Happy modelling
