  1. ACHTUNG SPITFIRE! Last Christmas I bought this kit and I was really looking forward to builded immediately... But it did not come up to my desk until now. I have nothing to say just that this kit is absolutelly brilliant and I have never seen anything better than this. The construction is always thinking one step forward and the parts fit 100%. Just an amazing job from Tamiya, you are advanced as no one is. But I will stop praising now. I fell in love with the coloured photos and this one convinced me to make this particular Spitfire K9955: (Colourised by Doug) from Facebook The description says: "RAF Fitters working on a Spitfire Mk I (possibly code LO-O K9955) of 'B' Flight, No. 602 (City of Glasgow) Squadron at Drem in East Lothian, Scotland. March 1940" Two years ago, I was in Scotland, East Lothian at the East Fortune airfield and museum which is very close to the former Drem airfield. The second reason why I chose this marking is the Scottish emblem from the Scottish pilot. I found decals from the Fündecals and ordered them immediatelly (what a luck!). And now to the model. I have worked on the cockpit using all the accesible photos of the early Spitfires to make the most realistic representation of this Spitfire. Look what I have done: Thanks for watching and good luck with your builds! Cheers, Andrew S.
  2. New tool 1/72nd Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vc expected in Autumn 2020 - ref. A02108 Source: https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/shop/new-for-2020/spitfire-mkvc.html 3D render V.P.
  3. Hi, I am trying to find out the disposition of radio antennae wires on the Spitfire marks (fighter versions) in RAF/RAAF/RCAF/RNZAF service in WWII. From what I could gather from photos, in general (as built): Marks I to V: wire running from the radio mast to a short mast on top of the rudder; wire running from the top wire to the fuselage, near the radio mast; wires running from the horizontal stabilizers, near their tips, to the fuselage sides, near the left hand-side radio inspection door and about the same position on right fuselage. Marks VI to VIII: same as above, but: wire running from the radio mast to a short mast on top of the rudder, if using rounded rudder; to an opening in the front of the rudder, near the top, if using pointed rudder. Marks IX, XII and XVI: only had the top wire, same as in Marks VI to VIII. Mark XIV: small whip antenna on the top of fuselage, offset to the right, nearer to the cockpit than to the fin. I would appreciate if you could correct me as I may have made mistakes. Cheers Rudnei
  4. Morning all, Here's the latest off the bench, the lovely little Tamiya Spitfire I. This model marks the first part of the resumption of a Battle of Britain project I started five years ago for the 75th anniversary, although this has been finished in the markings 74 Squadron aircraft that forced landed during the Battle of France. Given that battle shares the same anniversary I thought it should be included in the project. The main markings came from an Xtradecal sheet, the only other aftermarket inclusion were Eduard seat belts. Finished using Hataka Orange Line lacquers and Alclad for the exhausts, W&N Galeria Matt varnish for the final coat. 1/72 Tamiya Supermarine Spitfire I by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Tamiya Supermarine Spitfire I by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Tamiya Supermarine Spitfire I by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Tamiya Supermarine Spitfire I by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr 1/72 Tamiya Supermarine Spitfire I by Shaun Schofield, on Flickr Thanks for looking, comments welcomed Shaun
  5. Next up a Battle of Britain Spitfire Mk.I from the new tool Airfix kit, again using Xtradecals for an aircraft from 41 Sqn.
  6. Here’s another Spitfire for my 41 Sqn collection. This time it’s a Mk.XIVc using the Academy kit and Print Scale decals. I have a Mk.XII in the works to be finished in 41 Sqn markings.
  7. I've just seen an advert on tv for a 1/18 scale spitfire partwork model. unusual features were a base that has arms to move the completed model in several directions, it has working lights and a rotating propeller. first part £1.99, remaining parts (I presume around 100) £9.99. It appears to be this one; https://hachettepartworks.com/spitfire-mk-ia/spitfire-mk-ia-issue-1

  9. There have been a lot of these lately so I am not going to bother with box & sprue shots, just pitch straight in...I had been thinking about this one for a while, so had a Plan. This meant starting by jumping ahead and assembling the wings and tailplanes so I could do some serious dry-fitting against the fuselage halves - it all seemed pretty good, excellent tbh with a cautionary note that a gap was possible at the wing root but very easily cured with a spreader, which in the event was not required. I decided early on that I wasn't going to fully prime this one - somehow the primer always seems to come off very easily anyway so isn't giving much advantage aside from revealing joint flaws - so put stage one of The Plan into action, a black wash into all the rivet detail, using the Vallejo wash. This worked pretty well, the wash was given hours to dry and re-activated easily with water to wipe off nicely. It did reveal one curiosity, namely that Revell is a bit inconsistent with the sizes of the recessed rivets - on the top of the tailplane they are nice and small, on the bottom, twice the size. Fortunately the underside is not going to be on show once its in the cabinet Next it was on to the cockpit; should mention here that part of The Plan was to use this set inside and out: First out was the Interior Grey Green for an overall spray over all interior surfaces; the rear of the fuselage halves was masked out and given a coat of silver, then on to detail painting and detailing - The Plan involved using the Barracuda snapshot upgrade for this kit and their resin seat, a very nice bit of moulding even if you do have to think about how exactly it will fit in with the kit parts. As with all the recent 1/32 kits from Revell, the detail parts are quite nice but need a lot of cleanup to make them fit perfectly - as it must be said do a lot of the parts, but once clean they are generally a good match. Barracuda include decals with the snapshot and some of these were used, but they were more awkward then I would have liked. I did not use their dial decals as they simply did not match the size of the dials on the kit IP, instead I used some from Airscale. The kit instrument decal is even worse, it doesn't even match the layout of the plastic and is unusable as far as I am concerned. A layer of Future/Klear and it was out with the Vallejo wash to bring out the details, and here I hit the first hiccup in The Plan; after just a few minutes drying the wash refused to budge. A quick test on the wings showed that there it was happy to re-activate and wipe off, so I am blaming the Future here, it has clearly reacted and absorbed the wash. I shouldn't be too surprised, I know some people find it be a near miracle fluid capable of uses far beyond its design, I am consistently disappointed with its results. I think we tend to forget that it is first and foremost designed as a floor polish not a varnish, its just cheaper than real varnishes. Anyway, I am now disappointed with my cockpit as it looks messy, but am not willing to strip it down and start from scratch, so pressed on. Next time, a proper lacquer varnish before washing. Seatbelts from Eduard, and the cockpit tub is glued to the starboard fuselage half Next it was time to get the fuselage together, and suddenly the fit didn't seem too good; I think this is down to me, somehow I must have not got the cockpit in perfectly and it was forcing the halves apart slight at the front. I trimmed it a bit to improve matters, but otherwise went with brute force and superglue, taking it one section at a time. I still ended up with a gap on the forward fueslage, but on the plus side no longer needed a spreader to close up the gaps at the wing root. A little pressure was needed to keep the fuselage properly bedded down whilst the glue set, but otherwise no filler at the wing roots apart from a very small amount at the trailing edge where the corners are a little short-shot Those rivets are looking nice and hopefully will show through the Lifecolor paints, which tend to be more transparent than Vallejo or Tamiya. On the underside I used the Barracuda oil cooler but did not have the confidence to do the major surgery on the other side for the radiator; I am also using the ailerons from the same set, though do wonder if my set suffered a little from shrinkage, everything seems a little undersized and indeed the oil cooler needed a sliver of plastic card to lengthen it so it would fit the recess. Which brings us up to date; a little sanding around those seams where I have used the trusty 3M glazing putty (highly recommended) and I will be only using primer along the main seams to confirm they are good and cover the red of the putty.
  10. Hey everyone Since my Tamiya Spitfire is coming to an end I decided to have a look through my stash to see what I could build next and at the bottom of the pile I spied an Eduard 1/48 Spitfire with quite a lot of AM, these being the Brassin engine, gun bay and brass undercarriage legs I don’t have the Brassin cockpit for this kit as I really don’t think it adds very much to it and its more than adequate straight out of the box and because I have the Profipack version (8282) you get photoetch for the cockpit included. Since I’ve been looking at period photographs I have a hankering to build a desert camouflaged bird that’s heavily weathered. I haven’t made a start yet as I’m concentrating on getting my Mk.1 finished but I’ll post some pictures later of what I intend. cheers all Iain
  11. This build did't get off to a very good start - I had to ask Airfix for a replacement lower wing due to a short shot area. Airfix duly obliged but I must say that I was not overly impressed with the kit. Poor fit around the separate over nose section and at the wing roots caused a headache or two and the moulding of some (curiously not all) of the internal details was at best clumsy. The surface detail is also a bit hit and miss - panel lines disappear into oblivion at odd places and seriously - is there just one line of rivets along each wing? Sorry Airfix but you just don't seem to get any better. Sadly, when one compares with other Spitfires on the market this one just doesn't come up to scratch. Anyway - enough moaning - just means I will not be buying any more. I decided to finish the model using Exito decals - quite fancied a Canadian - Ex Aussie bird with nose art and badges - and the high viz roundels - all of which add splashes of colour. Unfortunately, as I was building, another identical spit was posted and it was too late to change! Like @tonyot I found that the Exito spinner spiral was reversed so I masked and painted it. The only extras I used were some generic belts and a mirror from Eduard and a few odd replacement parts from Eduard spares, like elevators and guns. I also replaced the Loran aerial under the fuselage, which disappeared to another universe under power provided by a pair of tweezers, with a scratchbuilt version. I drilled out the exhausts and used the kit gunsight which is pretty basic and doesn't really look the right type (?). Finished using Tamiya Medium Sea Grey for the underside and Xtracrylix Ocean Grey and Tamiya Dark Green for the upper. Xtracrylix is still the only Ocean Grey I have found that looks right to me and I find it sprays pretty well when thinned with Vallejo airbrush cleaner. The trick with Xtracrylix is not to use a small needle - it don't like that! Weathering was done with oils over Tamiya X22 and final finish was with a mix of AK matte/ultra matte. Might do a little more weathering but I'm generally pleased with the result. This and the XVIII are beautiful birds. I'd love to do a few but not with this kit I, afraid! And finally - a family shot with older and even more beautiful sister: Thank you for looking Cheers Malcolm
  12. Hello All, Thought I'd show you some in progress pictures of my Airfix Spitfire Mk XIV. So far it is very nice. All I have done so far as far as additions are the belts and a Eduard "LooK" instrument panel. I also thought I add a pilot standing near by preparing for a sortie. He's a Barracuda product. Hope you enjoy the pictures. As always all comments are appreciated. All the Best! Don
  13. I like to have models in various states of the build process so I can choose what to work on. Here is another Spitfire start. Although the fit is acceptable, Hasegawa does not fit as well as the Tamiya. Also, I had to repair a tiny chunk missing out of the trailing edge from the center part of the canopy. I have zero intentions of building it with the box cover markings.
  14. Hi everyone 2019 has been a funny old year for me, I've started many models but actually completed very few (three I think). My Hurricane along with my Typhoon (both 1/24), Spitfire IX (1/32), Lancaster and Swift (both 1/72) have all been put on hold for now and I just needed something to really reignite my interest in the hobby. I have been signed off from work sick so I have been spending a lot time on YouTube especially watching videos produced by a chap called PLASMO aka David Damek who I'm pretty sure used to frequent this site once upon a time and his methods have inspired me to change how I approach and finish a model. Back along I would never have bothered to clean and prime a model, re-scribe it nor would I have ever thought about using oils as a weathering medium but watching his videos I though Yeah I can do that (I already had all the gear just no idea!). So on with the build this is the object of my affections. I started her last week and my approach has been to assemble as much as I can before painting. As ever I started with the cockpit and as previously mentioned I assembled as much as I could before I applied any paint. You will notice that the pilots seat is green because I fully assembled the cockpit I found that I couldn't paint the seat in the correct Baker lite colour (Doh!) Starboard cockpit side wall Port cockpit side wall Assembled cockpit 'tub' which is very similar to its 1/32 brother in detail. I have added a Sutton Harness from Eduard which was weathered to match the rest of the cockpit. I am going to finish this with the canopy closed so I didn't spend that much time detailing the instrument panel With the gun sight installed The canopy in place I've even used the Tamiya masking templates rather than buying a set from Eduard and I have to say that they were pretty easy to cut out And finally a couple of pictures of her with a primer coat of Mr Surfacer 1200, which as expected has highlighted some areas that need a lot more work Tomorrow I'll make a start on the clean up. Cheers Iain

  18. This is MJ966, flown by Denys Boudard of No. 340 Free French Squadron (code GW), 1944. The squadron was moved from England – where it provided covering fire for the Normandy landings – to France, Belgium and back again. Apart from all its wear and tear, another distinguishing feature of this Spit was the 50 gallon drop tank it sported. This is Eduard’s 1/48 tooling of the Mk. IX, and It’s hard to imagine a better spitfire at this scale. Eduard attempt a 1/32 level of detail in a smaller kit, minus the engine. Perhaps some sub-assemblies do seem more complicated than they need to be; the exhaust stubs and wheel wells, for instance. But it seems as though Eduard want you to get involved - to problem solve and build at the same time. The smallness, delicacy and precision of fit makes you slow down and appreciate not only this version of the plane, but the plane itself. The Mk IX is a thing of beauty, and this kit does it justice on both a small and large level, from rivets to elliptical wings. I added an Eduard harness - this being the weekend edition - plus their resin/ PE drop tank, and I used Tamiya paints throughout. The codes and roundels were applied using Montex masks, and the stencils were all another aftermarket addition from Eduard. Thanks for looking!
  19. Hi everyone! I've been long thinking about this project and is now starting this to roll. Basically the plan is to build three spitfires in parallel. Subjects chosen would be mk.I, mk.IX and mk.XIX thus covering three major types such as early and late Merlin engined and Griffon engined machine. Here is what I'm starting with: Any advise or ideas are very welcome!
  20. Having got back into modelling a few months ago and slowly progressed an old Novo kit of a Gloster Javelin I figured it was time to start a new kit. As far as I can remember I have never actually built a Spitfire and so, when I was in the model shop getting tape on Friday, and saw the Eduard Spitfire I picked one up. So far, the detail is just brilliant and the parts all just slot together. The difference from the Javelin could not be greater! some sprues and the cockpit tub. 20200111_111739_Film2 by OutcastJoel, on Flickr
  21. The Spitfire is complete! This is the new tool 1/48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk. I. The first completion for 2020, let's hope I can keep up with this pace! Just over four weeks from start to finish. Some oils, exhaust stain and a few water colour pencil marks. I haven't enjoyed a build like this one in a long time. The weathering was kept to a minimum as N3200 only flew once due to it being shot down and crashing on a beach of which the photos are well known. It flies again nowadays. Hope you like it. Cheers, Mick ...and a moody one.
  22. There goes the siren that warns of the air raid There comes the sound of the guns sending flak Out for the scramble, we've got to get airborne Got to get up for the coming attack Well the mojo has taken a godawful battering this year, I've now got projects queueing up to get onto the SoD, (sorry you can't come in in those - they're trainers!), and builds queueing up for stickering on the markings production line that was formerly known as my kitchen. I hoped to relight the fire with an undocumented build as my last two WiP's have stalled, so I quietly sat down in the corner and got on with an Airfix 48th Lightning, which although substantially well on its way also has hit the buffers. How to cure this malaise I ask? (and it is a genuine but not rediculously serious malaise in the scheme of things; I'd been whingeing about shingles and feeling run down in my previous WIPs and blood tests have confirmed virtually a lack, as opposed to a deficiency, in my Vitamin D levels so I've been put on a horse-tablet dose of that for the next 6 months to see if it can lift my mood and stop me feeling so unwell all the time. Oh and because I'm self-employed and work virtually every waking hour, I also got prescribed some regular breaks and holidays so lets start taking them regularly too!) The news that Revell were releasing an Iron Maiden themed boxing of their 1/32 Spitfire II made my eyes light up with joy though. Having been about 5 years too young to see them in their infancy at one of my regular goto teenage pubs, The Ruskin Arms in East Ham, I jumped onto their rollercoaster ride in the early 80's, seeing them at Hammersmith Odeon and Wembley with regularity plus a trip up to Donnington for Monsters of Rock shortly after passing my driving test. OK now I have to see them at the O2, which to me has as much soul and life as Sainsbury's bacon, but it's still Maiden! Now on their last tour the opening song Aces High was accompanied by a 90% scale model of a Spitfire; OK a bit of an ambiguous mark of Spitfire and one that would keep rivet-counters awake all night sweating, but it was a Spitfire. As the on-stage version was what I wanted to model I hatched a plan to use the decals and the Eddie pilot figure (Eddie is the Iron Maiden mascot) from the Revell boxing with the Hobby Boss Spitfire Vb I had in the stash and that had been panned for it's rear fuselage shape issues amongst many others. Now the stage Spit has a 4 blade prop, two early style oil coolers but no radiators, 20mm wing cannon and a frickin' monster as a pilot so I couldn't see how HB's facsimile would detract from the Spittiness of this build, but once I had started building the kit up I looked at Revell's painting instructions and found that the stage Spits didn't have a genuine camo pattern applied (despite well-researched serials and codes), and that has proved too much for me; so I am now decorating this as the Mk 1 from the Aces High single cover. OK I know it's a Vb (sort of) and it's going to be painted as a Mk.I but from this day hence we're not going to speak of this again - got it! http://warbirdsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/single12_aceshigh_b.jpg Another piece of the jigsaw as to why this is just a fun build with no hang ups is that I am building this as a gift for a friend who I am seeing on 18 December, so timings are tight. Also my buddy is not that much of a plane geek as to notice, despite one of his other besties being an airline pilot (hopefully he doesn't show it to him!). I hadn't planned to run a WIP for this but now that I'm ahead of my schedule I think I can do some mini-updates to show what I've done so far. The boxes and stickers just because we should........ Now I never ever ever ever ever put pilots in my kits, well not since years back, before I discovered Brett Green, then BM and hopefully proper and better modelling, so figure painting is not my forte. I started the construction/painting with the cockpit and with Eddie himself. I am well chuffed with how Eddie came out btw, even if self-praise is feint praise. Although not getting quite the attention my normal 'pits get I'm happy with this for a quick and dirty build. All painted with Tamiya Acrylics and given a Future wash. OK as we're in a rush here's where we're at now. Fuselage is buttoned up, wings attached with "special aeroplane glue" (thank you Taaj), seams sorted, Halfords rattle cans rattled, some black lines to infuriate folk and the first coat of Tamiya Sky for good measure. Anyways 8 days to go and I think we're on track. Anyways it's time to Run to the Hills (or more like climb the carpet hill to Bedfordshire) so until the next one, be good...... Chris
  23. Dear all; If I may ask your help, please confirm or correct my understanding based on reading the various antenna threads here; Spitfire EN824 (Mk.Vb) manufactured in May 1942 and lost the following month would have had only the IFF wires, tail plane to fuselage. Spitfire MK324 (Mk.IX) manufactured in February 1944 and lost two months later would have had no antenna wires at all. Many thanks. Mark.
  24. Hi all. Next out of the gate after the Raiden is the ubiquitous Spitfire. This one will be a Mk.I built as N3200 from the new Tamiya kit; I couldn't go past the black and white wing undersides. The photos of this one are well know as it crash landed on a beach in Dunkirk on its first mission while on Operation Dynamo. I get to keep the weathering to a minimum on this one as it didn't last too long! Always with the box art. And of course the marking options Previously I'd remove one part at a time when assembling the kit, now I've switched to removing a whole bunch of parts for sub-assemblies. I find that it's a lot faster when it comes to cleanup (minimum with this model), paint and assembly. Who'd a thought? Cockpit first. There's no need for aftermarket here as it's amazing straight from the cardboard. Pics are a bit out of order but you get the idea. My F-35 pilot reckons he'd give it a go. The fit is ridiculously amazing. I've been a bit dubious about the supplied masks from Tamiya. Never fear, a fresh #11 scalpel blade and they fit really well. The A3 camo plans have a good use. Cut them out and you can mark the camo scheme with a water colour pencil over the base colour. Here it's Mr Color Dark Earth. Second colour applied after using Blu-tac sausages to make the camo pattern lines. The green is Mr Color Dark Green and the no walk lines were sprayed and masked before putting colours down. As wasn't happy with the colours so I mixed a 50:50 mix of the earth and green and then dusted it over the topside. The first photo below shows it applied only to the left side and the following photos show the final effect. Gloss coat and then stickers. This is the state it's in at the moment. MIGHT... finish it over the weekend. Hope you like it. Mick
  25. Greetings, During my research for my future Spitfire builds, I decided to compile a chart of all basic, military, 'official' versions from a scale modeler's point of view (based on major external feature differences). main categories are: Merlin ('short-nosed'), Merlin ('long-nosed'), Griffon ('short-nosed') and Griffon ('long-nosed') machines. I would like to hear your opinions if I forgot something, or I have made an error somewhere (e.g. are the Griffon Seafires exactly coupled to their appropriate Spitfire counterparts?) This is far from complete, as the vast Spitfire variants transcend my knowledge, as well as the variant range I intend to build (the reason for making this table in the first place). It will be arranged as an editable open-source, and always available on Google Docs. Edit Oct 2019: I have revised the table, and made it simpler for input (just color the appropriate field green to mark it as a "historically possible". Important notes: This is a simple variants guide, aimed at scale modelers interested at differentiating external features of the Spitfire, or thinking of building some other variant not enclosed in the box without major kit 'surgery'. It is not intended to be THE ultimate chart containing every feature of every Spitfire produced. Performance is also not the part of it, as e.g. You cannot state the power of an engine without specifying the altitude it is recorded, which complicates things immensely... Please refrain from "Oh, this is pointless" type of comments. If You have anything constructive to add, You are more than welcome to do so. And please write Your name in the Contributors section. Please refrain from adding or deleting rows/columns in the table. If You have a suggestion to add a basic, military, 'official' variant, please contact me via PM or e-mail, and I will gladly do so. Please keep it metric to avoid confusion. Any help is more than welcome. Regards, Aleksandar
