I want to share my supermarime Spitfire Mk.I from tamiya kit.
I cooperated it with aires detail set (open engine, gun bays, cockpit) and photoetched parts by eduard (flaps). I also made a lot of details myself (rivets,etc.) I painted it [...]
Having double ordered Airfix's new 1/48 scale Spitfire XII & Seafire XVII & completed one of each with a great deal of satisfaction, I wondered what to do with the second pair of kits that would be more interesting than doing the same a[...]

This was a commission build for a friend. The markings are 601 Sqn but are fictitious as per the aircraft he flies online. The Tamiya kit is an absolute pleasure to build and features a beautifully detailed Merlin 60 engine set to which I added [...]
