  1. Another inspired build from the book Spitfires in the Sun. This is an oddball version of MA 368, a Spitfire Vc that served with the RIAF. I had earlier built the Airfix 1/72 kit as the final version of the plane as it was with 1 SFTS in Peshawar. This is MA 368 when it got its first interim paint job. It arrived in India in the Middle East scheme and painted in the RAF temperate land scheme soon after. However the azure blue underside was left as is and dark green and dark earth were transposed. Further, the original Type C1 roundel and fin flash were painted over with the ACSEA Blue/India white colors to the same dimensions. About the build and kit - this was a side build as I was building the Airfix 1/72 Spitfire Vc as the main build. This KP side build though took way longer as I went from disaster to disaster. See my link to the build thread. Happy to see this done finally. Colors are mainly Vallejo Air except for the Dark Green which is Tamiya. The Vallejo Dark Green sucks but the rest of the Vallejo colors are great. For the gloss and dull coats I used Ammo Mig's Lucky Varnishes for the first time and am very happy with it. The build thread is here Thanks for viewing. Always appreciate comments and suggestions πŸ‘frame widget
  2. Greetings. Since I got the wonderful book "Spitfires in the Sun" written by @Linescriber I have tried my hand at some of the wonderful Spitfires profiled in the book. This is MA368, one of the rare handful of Vs that flew in India. When it arrived in India and delivered to 607 squadron RAF, it was in the Middle East scheme and after a cpl of different paint jobs ended up in the correct temperate land scheme with 16" ACSEA blue India roundels. Shown here as it was with 1 SFTS at Peshawar and Ambala. The kit itself is nice and gets you excited for a bit before disappointing you as well. The fit is fine though requires some muscle and putty for the wing root and vokes filter fitting. They have even included decals for parts not in the kit like the fuel cap on the nose πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ and missing some parts altogether like the rearview mirror. A thin cockpit door would have been a nice option for those of us who like to build it that way. I still need to sand the door thin but calling this done for now. The rearview mirror comes from the Italeri kit. Paints are Tamiya. I am not a very good photographer so please pardon the quality of the images as I used my very outdated phone camera. Here is the link to the build thread. Thank you for looking πŸ™
