So, seeing that quirky/inspirational thread titles are all the rage recently I thought I'd join in... However having been told a few times about my sense of humour, I myself will keep this thread serious with no banter. What you guys do is out of my control. Nor will I distract or diverge with history as I am no expert in that area. So will just keep it modelling JKIM. Anyways back to why we are here... (JKIM) I had planned these spring build spitfires for a while, with some overtrees to use up the foreign options from my Royal Class boxing. (Anyone who has seen my stuff lately will know I like doing things in bulk - the tomcats got ignored/postponed for the Christmas wip, then F-16's and now these) The quattro I had planned from the Royal Class decals was going to be the US/French/Soviet and Israeli ones. However the french and soviet ones were done very recently by @Procopius and the US and Israeli ones are quite common too... So I trawlled the net for lesser spotted spits and found some interesting decals. The project then grew from a quattro to a sextet. (Also because I had more paint shades to try) So the builds planned are 3 C wing and 3 E wing planes. C's Serb - Mr Paint Greek - Ak air US and A - Mr Color E's Norse - Hataka Lacquer Line Turk - Colourcoats Russian - xtracrylix The builds will be pretty basic as they are overtrees with no etch and no stencils etc. I have a couple ideas to compensate for etch and the like. Also not worried about lack of stencils as they are all foreign or postwar so most stencils will be worn or possibly not replaced after a repaint... I did get some techmod ones to do the odd one here and there. I will be using some masks too for the paint jobs to speed up the project, apart from the serb and yank which will be freehand as they have non standard patterns or areas of repainting. The paint manufacturers chosen have been allocated to help this work best. Lets get to it. Note, American and Russian decals still inbound. Mr Color and xtracrylix not shown. I only have the day fighter colours from @SovereignHobbies, no interior shade so will use some alcald paint to keep that build enamel themed. Also can't wait to try the orange line by @HATAKA OFFICIAL, and the blue line (brush) bottles will used to detail paint all builds. Thanks for looking!
