    Spitfire PRXI

    The fit of the resin gun bay blanking plates was very poor had to do a lot of trimming and sanding to the resin parts. The under chin cowling wasn’t too bad only a little sanding was needed for it to fit. It was a challenge overall but I thoroughly enjoyed this build from start to finish!

    Spitfire PRXI

    Hi all here is my recently finished 1:32 Supermarine Spitfire PRXI. The Tamiya Spitfire MKIX kit (60319) converted using Alley Cats PRXI conversion (AC32023C). Aircraft finished as MB948 “Oh johnie” based at mount farm Oxfordshire 1944/45 I added extra detail in the cockpit ie wiring and plumbing. Tamiya paints used XF-1 XF-16 XF-18 XF-71 XF-85 X-2 X-23 X-25 X-27 among others with Florys dark dirt wash and Humbrols weathering powders. Pledge floor care Windsor and Newton Matt varnish to finish Thanks for looking and Enjoy

    Airfix Meatbox F.8

    Hi All Here is my Airfix 1:48 Gloster Meteor F.8 I decided early on in the build that I wanted to do a Syrian Air Force example so obtained XtraDecal sheet X48158 Gloster Meteor F.8 Collection Pt1. I also used Eduard Brassin wheel set (ED648272) and Eduard cockpit set (EDFE765) and Eduard masking set (EDEX498). I used Tamiya paints throughout, XF-59 Desert Yellow XF-26 Deep Green for the upper side camo and XF-18 Medium Blue for the underside. I’m really pleased how this has turned out having tried new techniques which I picked up by watching YouTube ie preshading, lightening the base colours to give the effect of sun bleaching I also used Humbrols weathering powders also I used Windsor and Newtons Gloss and Matt Varnishes both thinned 50/50 with Tamiya X-20 Thinners. Many Thanks
  5. Very nice, did you do the markings yourself or are they aftermarket decals
