With two kits in progress at the moment, it's time to start another. I'll be using the recent Krovozávody Prostějov Spitfire VC with transfers left-over from a Sword kit to do another RAAF plane. I've made a start by removing the parts I don't need and storing them for possible future use, and painting bits with Humbrol 33 and Colourcoats Interior Grey-green. Thanks for looking.
I can't remember if I signed-up for this Group Build or not but, having returned from a week in Corfu this morning, I'd like to join-in. I'll be using the recently released KP VC having got my hands on some from my usual supplier, the ever reliable MJW Models. I'll be using the transfers from the Airfix VC (which, like the KP one, was based on a VB - the KP being several orders of magnitude better than the Airfix one, as the photographs of the sprues will show.) There appears to be some dispute as to the colour scheme. Airfix have you paint it overall green: but this suggests Foliage Green/ Dark Earth... There are a couple of good photographs from a build thread by @darson, I hope he/ she doesn't mind me borrowing the photographs (the build didn't get done and the member hadn't visited the site since 07/07/2017. I wonder if he's still around?) and more here, also a discussion about the upper surfaces colours which I'll read thoroughly before painting. https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/done-1-72-spitfire-mk-vc-pacific-theatre-of-operations-ii.40419/ Before I start, here are the promised sprue-shots. (As you can see, it's their VB with an extra sprue.) Here's a closer photograph of the extra sprue for the VC wing, cannon fairings and cannon bulges. You also get a pair of six-ejector exhausts - which will come in handy in another build I have planned elsewhere. Thanks for looking, more soon.
As my Blenheim and Spitfires are nearing completion, it's time to start another kit (and I think there's time for two or three more after this one). My intended victim is the KP Mustang III so here's the obligatory box-top and sprue shots: Here's the profile: Following a discussion here: I'll be painting the undersides in a light grey. Thanks for looking, some in-progress photographs will follow shortly.
