  1. Afternoon from a sunny New Zealand A rather well known Spitfire Mk.Ia of Alan Deere called Kiwi II. Possibly the most famous NZ fighter pilot of WWII. He was with 54 Sqn at Hornchurch, July 1940 when flying this particular aircraft. I want to build Colin Greys Mk.Ia KL-T in future too as the two inseparable while at 54 Sqn. Markings come from DK Decals 1/72 Spitfire Mk.I/II Aces and were flawless in colour, density & adherence. Paints used were Mr Color lacquers. Very pleased with the overall result and weathering. Even after having to strip it back to bare plastic after a primer coat that failed to adhere. Overall a solid kit with loads of potential for weathering, this being my 7th build of this kit. There will be more as there are still 25 odd to choose from still on the DK sheet.
  2. Hi, all. Thought I'd share my latest complete kit. I bought the Tamiya Spitfire as a quick build while I struggled along with some of my other works in progress. It largely fell together. I made two small alterations. I sanded the nose to create a profile I was happy with. I lost some of the raised detail in the process, but I'm not worried. I also used a vacuum formed canopy. This is the Squadron Mk1 canopy. The rear section isn't vacuum formed, but is one of my spares from my Eduard Spitfires. I had to build up the airframe with plastic card and filler to meet the base of the new canopy. I've painted this bird as Alan Deere's Kiwi P9398. I've kept it rather clean apart from some light exhaust staining and some highlighting of certain panel lines. This shows better on the underside with the lighter colours. I believe this is the aircraft he was flying when he had a head on collision with a Bf109. Sticking with the New Zealanders in British aircraft theme you'll see Keith Park's Hurricane in the final photos. At some point I'll add Deere's Spitfire Mk. 9 to the collection. Not the best photos (indoors, afternoon, no direct light!) but you get the idea.
