Supermarine Spitfire LF Mk.IXe 1/32 Revell

April 26, 2024 · in Aviation · · 4 · 190

I didn't share with you how I restored the quick-release screws that either disappeared during grinding or were straight-up Revell fluff. Step 1 I cut a wheel of the appropriate diameter from a 0.5 plate, step 2 glued it, step 3 drilled the holes, step 4 ran it with a sanding sponge, step 5 licked it with extra thin and voila, no one noticed anything. I finished about 20 of them 🙂

  1. Alright - let's really test your skill - show me that in 1/72! 🙂

    You're effort looks great!

  2. Impressive, that's a lot of work, but they do look great, Josef @joeross

  3. Really impressive, Josef!

  4. Well done. Thanks for sharing your technique. I will have to check my old Waldron punch and die set to see if I can make some suitable size discs.
