  1. HI all Maiden post Picking up tools again after a fifteen year layoff... this site has been a revelation in terms of knowledge and information so i hope someone can help. First project is to renovate Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk1A - Mk1A gun bays are horribly devoid of detail. Airfix guns improved with Master kit but i want to put in tray/chute details (ignoring the fact that Airfix ammunition boxes don't line up with Brownings....) I have looked on internet and my own references for last two weeks to find a photo of gun bays with ammunition boxes in situ connected to Brownings by t
  2. Hello all, here are a pair of 1/72 Airfix Spitfires I've been working on bit by bit over the last few months. There's a WIP here: Both models went together really easily, I used sprayed Tamiya acrylics with artists oil paints for shading and weathering. There's a few little mistakes (no idea where the mk22 tail wheel went..., etc) but I learned lots along the way and really enjoyed building these two up in parallel. Enjoy!
  3. Some pictures I took today of the completed build. WIP can be found here Next time I'll dust the model before taking the pictures And without the stand (removed using Inpaint) And paired with the older tool Airfix Sptitfire Mk1 which was the next build after this one. And again with stand edited out. And yes, I know the aerial connector is going to the wrong place in the fuselage on the 109. Also the Spit has both HF and IFF fitted which appeared correct according to the Xtradecal drawings for LO.A and, in my innocence, I reasoned that there might have been some crosso
  4. This build took place late June to early July 2015 after residing in my stash since 2007/8 (can't remember exactly when I bought it) After the Tamiya 109E3 I wanted to try something that was not so shake 'n' bake and, as I wanted a Spitfire to go with the 109, I dug this one out. Work began with spraying the interior a custom mix of RAF interior green using Tamiya paints and then a light wash of burnt umber oils And then threw some paint in the general direction of the pilot figure Oh BTW can anyone tell me how to scale the picture sizes within the post? Whatever size the picture i
  5. This is my finished Airfix 1/72 MkIa Spitfire - the new tool version. I really enjoyed building it. It's the first plane I've built in many, many years so it was a bit of a learning experience. It's all brush painted apart from the final application of matt varnish which was from a rattle can. I tried some pre-shading, which I think worked, and this is my first attempt at weathering. The build can be found here. The first photos are ones I took after deciding it was finished and in proper daylight rather than electric light: Next I decided to make a little display base for
  6. Mike’s review of this kit can be found here: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/54953-supermarine-spitfire-mk1a/?hl=%2Bspitfire+%2Bairfix - it includes box and sprue photos so I won’t post mine. This is my 100th post and, to celebrate, it’s going to be my first proper WiP. Although I did do one for the Bandai Space Suit, because of the way I opted to make it, it had very little in the way of traditional kit building/painting techniques involved. This one, on the other hand, should be a bit more involved (for me) but it’s probably not going to be very interesting for most of
