  1. Looks like the kits will be on their way to those who pre-ordered real soon. Mark

    You can find more photos of the models and the event here. https://www.facebook.com/pg/spruecutterscom/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1567575239955675 https://airfix2017.spruecutters.com/gallery By the way, the Skycrane was 100% scratch-built. Mark
  3. Wow. That's quite a lot of excellent information here. I'm most definitely taking notes and will apply them when I build another Spitfire somewhere down the line. Much thanks everyone! Mark
  4. Thanks for all the feedback. I'll take note of the stuff mentioned and apply them on my next Spitfire build. Just got the 1/32 Revell Mk.IX from the store today. Mark
  5. Thanks for the kind words, everyone. Mark
  6. Eduard kit built OOB with paint masks and decals from AML. Hope you enjoy the photos! Mark

    Hi, that's some good progress there. But may I suggest that you take your photos from a distance and then crop to the area that you want to highlight? It looks like you are taking the shots closer than the minimum focus distance of your camera and this is causing them to be badly out of focus. Aside from that, you're doing some phenomenal work on a NMF which is never easy to replicate. Keep it up! Mark

    I have applied a wash over a gloss coat. I used Tamiya enamels. Mark

    Thanks for the continued encouragement, everyone! I have completed the application of the stencils and decals in general. They were thin and reacted well to the Mr Mark Softer which I used. Next up will the panel line wash and weathering. Mark
  10. 1/48 Eduard Spitfire Mk.IX

    Now that the painting is out of the way, I started on the decals. One of the reasons why I chose this particular scheme was because of the swastika kill markings. I'm hoping to display it on a turf surface after finishing. This is just a mock-up. Mark
  11. Update on the Tomcat via AMK's Facebook page. Mark
  12. 1/48 Eduard Spitfire Mk.IX

    Small update. Masked and sprayed the code letters in RAF Sky. Masked and sprayed the exhausts with Mr Color Burnt Iron. And an overall shot of the build. It is ready for a gloss coat and then the decals. Mark

    After yet another round of masking, I sprayed the invasion stripe areas in flat white and masked out the black parts after that. Then I sprayed flat black in the appropriate areas and removed the masking tape. As the AML decal sheet provided vinyl masks for the roundels, I sprayed them too. Some touching up to be done but they generally came out alright. Mark
