An IAF Spitfire? What's not to like - and I extra double like that one.

Hi Bibriel, what colours have you used for this? I ask as I am after colour info for an Avia S-199 from the same era in IDF service & I think what you have done with this looks very good. I'm guessing Dark green & Dark Earth over Medium Sea grey but would like some confirmation/guidance on this. Nice job too by the way. :thumbsup:
Steve.

That looks great. I particularly like the chipping. Very realistic. :speak_cool:

This is the best build of an ICM Spit that I`ve seen and I love the colour scheme, but what is the wartime RAF Mossie doing visiting a very green looking late 1940`s Israeli airfield!!
I love the weathering too, especially on the fuselage star of david,
All the best

That looks so good, especially the weathering. All the early Israeli aircraft looked really tired and you've got it just right well done!

What colours did you use and is it brush or Airbrush painted?

Very nice spitfire.

It's always nice to see a spit in a different scheme to the usual RAF colours
