Revell 1/48 Spitfire MK. II

January 12, 2023 · in Aviation · · 10 · 1.2K

Picked this kit up cheap for a quick build. 3 sprues plus clear parts. Raised panel lines. No engine. I think first came out about 1976.
Built out of box. Went together pretty good. Some filler on fuselage/wing attachments. Decals not too bad.
Tamiya paint. XF82 and XF81 for camo and XF83 for bottom. Some relatively light weathering.

Wasn't going for historical accuracy as this plane was green/brown camo but I like the green/gray. I did add the IFF wires but no aerial antenna as the photos show.

Up next Eduard Spitfire story Southern Star. MK. Vb trop

  1. A beautiful out of the box build, Russ!

  2. Very nice result of this early Spitfire, Russ @rfking
    Hard to believe this is an old kit, you made it look like one of those modern kits.

  3. Definitely looks like a Spitfire, nice oob build.

  4. Nice looking Spitfire, great job!

  5. Great result on this- I remember building this as a kid with less than stellar results. Yours is a good reminder that its ok to just have fun once in a while and not worry so much about accuracy, color, etc. I think that fun is why most of us got into this hobby in the first place!
