Fun to build, decals were really sticky.
My first attempt in the very tricky world of NMF. And perhaps my last one, at least for a while. This was a very unforgiving project. Every mistake you do, you'll pay during painting. Every minor repair, after the paint job, always l[...]

1/72 Tamiya Spitfire Vb Trop. I was going through my stash and found this kit partially built with the cockpit mostly painted. I guess you can say it came from the shelf of doom. I realized I did not have a American Spitfire in my collection so [...]
Resin gun pods and gun barrels from Quickboost, the side blast shields and front guns exit were done with styrene plastic sheet. Decals from an old Albatros decal set but I retouched the Nose Art decal and painted the falcon´s head and national [...]
