Ales CZ

Eduard 1:72 Spitfire Mk.IXc, BS461, 222.squadron

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

My name is Ales and this is my very first contribution on this forum. The Britmodeller website is the reason I have started building models again, after 20 years break, and the work that can be found here has been a great inspiration to me, I dare to say :)

The Spitfire model shown below is my ninth model since the comeback. It is from the Eduards limited edition 'Nasi se vraceji' (Boys are coming home) and represents version Mk.IXc, BS461, flown by many pilots from the 222.squadron based in Hornchurch mid 1943. From the book that was a part of the limited edition, the plane appeared to be a quite worn.

I have used Airbrush IWATA Neo TRN1, Tamiya acrylic paints, ALCLAD Aqua gloss varnish, Vallejo sating varnish,  Abteilung Oil paints and pigments. The photos were taken by an old Canon compact digital camera.

Enjoy :)

Very nice indeed. Great photos too.....I reckon good lighting is more important than the latest greatest camera!

Keep up the good work!

Cheers

Welcome back! Superb Spitfire with (to my eye) realistic and tastefully restrained weathering.

 

Kind regards,

That is really lovely Ales, I like your subtle paintwork and the way everything had bedded in so nicely. A very good job.

Very nicely done indeed, that lovely subtle weathering could have it passing for a bigger scale. I'm impressed. :)
