  1. My dual Spitfire build continues, with the decaling done (at last) I've used Xtradecals 48130 Spit Mks XIV-XVIII, X023-48 Squadron codes, Aviaeology A0D48C05 Serial No.s, andA0D48009m Stencils. Flat coat, weathering, and final construction next ... Hope you like so far (link to build -) Colin
  2. I'm working on a Spitfire XIVe highback by converting the Airfix 1/48 Spit XIX without kitbashing. I realize there are easier ways to get there, but I purchased the kit and parts when these were the only options, so I may as well use them. I'm also grateful for all the info I've been able to get from this website, many excellent modellers have gone down this road in various ways, and I value the knowledge they've been willing to share. Thank you, all. I'm using the Airfix 1/48 Mk XIX, Barracudacast 4 spoke wheels, and cylinder head covers (to correct the short kit covers), Ultracas
  3. Hi all, Well half term means a week off school, means a a week modelling. Anyway, I brought AZ Legato Spitfire XIV and Freightdogs XIV (same kit), but I thought I could do the same for half the price. So here's the basic concept... Airfix's 1/72 XIX; remove high back, replace with low back, fill d wing panel lines, scribe e wing panel lines, add e wing armament. I've ordered bubble canopies aswell so that'll complete it. Anyway, here's some pics. First line indicating where the low back spine should be, Lower line is where the cut will be, Wax spine made by taking a negative mold of my
  4. Hi all, Well I FINALLY finished my second XIVe after I managed to get hold of some matt varnish. Anyway, without further ado... For some reason EB-V is a few millimetres taller that JEJ at the nose, the U/C must have been too long. The colours changed slightly due to my silly humbrol paints, but other than that I'm happy Ben.
  5. Hi all, Ah at last, half term (in other words a week building). So hot off the work bench is my Spitfire XIVe. Difficult kit. Lots and lots and lots of sanding, filling, filing, re-scribing, cutting, etc... Not to mention the canopy was horrifically translucent. All Humbrol acrylic paints; 163/164 for the upper surfaces, 165 for lower. (I know Spitfire's aren't shiny like this, the matt enamel hasn't yet dried) Ben.
