Ever since I started modelling I've always wanted to build a spitfire but I never got around to it. Finally I picked up a spitfire by monogram and it has been an easy but very fun little build.
For starters there is only 40 parts so this plane is not massively detailed but I only paid around 10 bucks for it. Also when I started to apply the decals I realized that the instructions were for a different set of decals, so I had to rely on my internet sources.
Sorry these paragraphs are so sloppy and unprofessional but, if you noticed looking through my pictures you can see some very sloppy and large pre shading, this was my first attempt ever at doing it and I personally thought it came out decent. I feel as if I changed the tip on my air brush to make it smaller it would have come out a tid bit better. But I've never gotten a perfect mixture of thinned black paint it's either too thick or too thin any advice other than the milk trick?
All of the pictures are off of my iPhone so I'm sorry if any of them are tilted, I was too lazy to whip out my Canon
