My personal tribute to Spitfire this year. Hasegawa, Special Hobby, Eduard. Some wrong( Israel was without guns), but i am happy. Never forget sound over Duxford.
Not easy kit like Gawa or Eduard or Tamiya, but i like picture on box. This camo is super. Color on top i mixed from Tamiya. Some mistakes, but finished. First problem fit, second decals, and last - cover cockpit.
I build many years ago this bird on 1/72 scale, paint by brush. Now this my new on 1/48 OOB Hobby Boss with decals from Series Espaňolas.
A few years ago i build kits for my friend and he sell this to world :) This twins i want back to my stash all time :) Now i buy that kit and plane rebuild :)
In July 19th,1969,Maj.Soto, piloting FAH 609,shot down 3 A/Cs from El Salvador. Cavalier F-51D FAS 404 and Goodyear FG-1D FAS 202 and FAS 204.
I interest about "Soccer War" long time. This is 100 hours war fought by El Salvador against Honduras [...]
This is second prototype tested in Boscombe Down in 1940. I saw this interested camo on box AZ model 1/72, but here is little different color. On internet i find Warpaint No.41 and this is result. Another yellow bird.
Old kit, not good for today standarts, but only one in this scale. I am happy , that i have finished it.
I know, much mistakes :)
This is my first Spitfire!!!!! And first kit finished in 2021 year.
Pilot this plane was Oberfeldwebel Hans Rössner, Schwarmführer in 12 Staffel IV Gruppe Jagtgeschwader 77. He was born in Boškov (Československo) 25.5.1920 and dead 23.12.1944. This kit is my personal tribute for him.
