  1. Another of 2019's builds which has helped fill my top shelf with Spitfires as good liqueur should. 9 of 12 using Airfix 1/72 Mk. I/II/Va kit, Others are Hasegawa's Mk.VIII & IX kits. Additions include PE seat belts and 3D Kits Spitfire Mk.II conversion kit. This provided new seat, control coulomb, coffman starter bulge and Rotol spinner/propeller. Painted with Mr Surfacer 1000 and Mr Color lacquers for all else. Decals are a mix of kit insignia, 3D Kits nose insignia, name and serial number. I replaced the sky lettering with Micro Decals, these are my go to for code letters. Al
  2. While the satin coat dries on my Israeli 'FrankenSpit' I will push ahead with yet another, switch brands and go north to Sweden in the early days of the Cold War. Here are the initial offerings from the box... The bird is blue...sorry for the terrible photo. Sprues...not the level of detail I have become used to with the AZ moulds, but decent and should be a fun aircraft to build. The decals look awfully nice with excellent register and plenty of stencil data. Since this is a photo-recon aircraft and unarmed, and kept by the Swed
  3. My first post on britmodeller and my second 1/48 scale model from Airfix. I'm going to be brush finishing this model with humbrol enamel paints and will be updating this topic a couple times a week I hope all of you enjoy and I look forward to some feedback from you guys thanks ! This the colour scheme I choose for the finish with the 24 yellow nose cone and 123 extra dark sea grey on top with a Number 90 beige green and 135 satin vanish mix for the underside of the model ">http:// I also have some Sprue pictures and a picture of the paints themselves ">http:// ">http:// paint
  4. Hello BM'ers... Despite my efforts to lurk around here and say nice things about the works of plastic engineering joy you so often produce, it's been a good 7 months since I've had any chance to do any modelling myself. Life has a habit of getting in the way, and boy did it ever... Anyway, I finally got the chance to stick some things together and slap some paint on, and as it looks like I might (!) have a bit more spare time to improve my rather lacklustre skills, I thought I'd have a run-up 'quick-build' before tackling an Eduard 1/48 Spitfire IX. As such, I dragged an obvious choice out o
  5. Hi All Here's my Spitfire which I want to share with you. It has some firsts for me, first time using an airbrush and first time weathering and washing panel lines. Obligatory 'upside down on tamiya pots' photo: Oh no! Giant killer cat! Hope you enjoy, best wishes, Danyel
  6. Here's my build of the classic Airfix Plane, the early re-release of the Spitfire IX. Pros; good overall shape, good parts fit. Proper long air intake, proper shock links on the u/c. Cons; interior a throwback to the 70's, four spoke wheels! Possibly a few bumps missing off the cowling... There may be others, i.e. I'm not sure the late type tailplanes are right for this particular plane, and there is controversy over those wheel bumps in the upper wings... Let's get cracking, then, Grommit. Grinding out the 4x2's moulded inside the fuselage. Interior is from a scrap Revell Mark V. G
  7. Helloo fine folk of Britmodeller, I trust I find everyone well? If I may, I'd like to share a few images of a recent completion. Whilst on holiday in Derbyshire a few weeks ago I stumbled on a new tool boxing of the Spitfire Mk IIA by Airfix. It was at a very reasonable £4.99 which seemed to be good value and, since I'd spent the week enjoying building the new tool Airfix Gnat I thought I'd take the plunge. I have to say that I'm very impressed by Airfix. They seem to be trying very hard with their latest releases. This kit offers two build options with alternative parts and decals plus a c
  8. Back to the seventies guys just finished my paper round thrown the raleigh chopper in the yard and rushing in the house to throw together the new airfix spitfire Vb from box to windowsill in an hour!built old style brush painted on it,s stand.Original boxing newer decals originals too far gone thanks for looking.
  9. Photo Etch Set for Airfix Spitfire F Mk. 22 (self adhesive) 1:72 Eduard Airfix’s Spitfire F Mk.22 was something of a surprise when it was announced last year, as most modellers were expecting another one of the wartime marks of the famous fighter. Nevertheless, the kit was warmly welcomed by the modelling community as it combined detail, buildability and value in one tempting package. Now Eduard have turned their attention to the kit with a set of photo etched detail parts. As with many of their sets, this package from Eduard is comprised of two frets. The first cont
