  1. Heres my current wip the spitfire from the battle of Britain set in 1/72. This one I've done with a few new techniques including pre shading and using the good old blutac snake for the airbrush.
  2. I'm sure this has been asked before (by me possibly), but what would I need to do to convert a Mk.I to a Mk.II or III?

I have started to scribe the panel lines; Tools of the trade are a steel ruler, a set of etched templates, an Olfa P cutter, and a compass needle mounted in a pin vice.
