Evening guys, I've been waiting on the GB for a while now! For that reason I may actually finish a build for a GB for once. Listed below is the kit I'll be using which I picked up from a Flying Legends a few years back. I'll be using an Xtradecal set and finishing the build as A/C QJ-W flown by Flight Leuitenant Denys Gillam. Having researched his history, I have visited many locations he was posted and served at throughout the UK so his aircraft and career resonates with myself. Anyone interested in F/L Gillam I have linked
This is my attempt at 'White 19', the subject of a very famous photograph of 19 Squadron RAF, the first unit to receive the Spitfire. The victim kit is the Airfix Series 2 boxing with a scratch built early-type pitot and the protruding gun barrels represented by stretched cotton buds. Brush painted with Humbrol Enamel Dark Earth, Sovereign Hobbies Dark Green and, Tamiya acrylic Flat Aluminium. The decals are Illiad Design. Should you wish to view the WIP, it's here. As usual, I can see all the mistakes. Oh well. (Edited to correct spelling.)
