A Heller of a Spitfire

264 Squadron Boulton-Paul Defiant in 1/48 (Battle of Britain day scheme)

Hi all, This is my lash up of the relatively new tool Airfix quarter scale Defiant. Tried a heavy post-shade then comprehensive highlighting coat technique with freehand camo. All feedback welcome as ever! :-) Full build video here:

A new Spitfire for the New Year! I'm sure many of you have been looking at Tamiya's new release and new tool Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1 in 1:48 scale. Here follows my two cents having built it over the last few days of the Christmas break: Thi[...]
