Hi all I managed to squeeze this one in before Christmas and finish up 2020 from a modelling perspective. This is Special Hobby's Spitfire VC 'Malta Defenders' boxing, completed as George 'Screwball' Beurling's BR323. I was glad to get onto the painting after what was a less than straight forward build than I really wanted. I don't want to over exaggerate the fit issues but I really dislike any filling, sanding and re-scribing, so its always a particularly painful part of a build for me. So for the paints used- all MRP, azure blue, stone and dark earth went
Oh dear.... I’m hooked on this group build! Next cab off the rank is from Airfix: Kit: Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Vb “Specialist Spitfires” Decals: Victory Productions “Aces of the Empire” Extras: Eduard harnesses The subject this time is Spitfire Vb Trop EP706 of 249 Squadron RAF based in Malta in Sept 1942 and flown by George Beurling. The decal sheet asserts that this was not one of the Malta ‘blue’ Spitfires, so I’ll be sticking with the mid stone/ dark earth / azure blue scheme. They also refer to photographs of this aircraft but I have yet to find any
Hi everyone, Here i present my last ended work. I start to share the process here (work in progress) but i stoped the work one year ago and now, i have found the time to finish it. I'm going to explain it because i understand it's not the "typical" aircraft model. I confess that I have always seen these WWII fighters like birds, struggling to survive, hunting or being hunted. So it is easy to understand that when I started reading the story of the allied ace George Beurling, which they called "The Falcon of Malta", quickly i imagine a scene like I present here.
