  2. While on one hand it makes me a little nervous to have two kits on the go at the same time, I recently got this: ... and this does seem as good a place as any to build it. One of the box options is for a Malta Spitfire but I will be building one of the options from the Xtradecal sheet X72-161 The Battle for Malta - RAF: Specifically, BR294 GL-E. Our own Tony O'Toole was kind enough to advise me on the scheme and he recommended that the aircraft in question should be painted blue as per the top Spitfire in the picture - I
  3. Hi folks,this is my second of three Spitfire family builds for this GB.My take on The Historic Aircraft Collection's Vb in the colours of 317(polish) Sqn BM597 also as a tribute to those Polish airmen who made their way to Britain to help defend these isle's and later help liberate the continent many paying the ultimate price.Edgar had a hand in the conception of this kit and is rightly aknowledged by Airfix on the box.I have finished her in a slightly glossy finish with no weathering as reflected in the immaculately preserved real aircraft.Thanks for looking.
  4. I finally finished my Spitfire Vb yesterday, having struggled to find a decent matt varnish. I thoroughly enjoyed this kit, except for the landing gear.
  5. Supermarine Spitfire Vb Airfix 1:48 The Spitfire hardly needs an introduction, an iconic war machine and graceful lines satisfying the technical theory that ‘If it looks right, it flies right’! With around 6000 aircraft produced across the various sites, the Mk.V was the most produced version of the 20,000+ built. Coming in to service in 1941, it incorporated many of the improvements developed in the Mk.III, however instead of using the planned Mk.XX Merlin which was in short supply, the Mk.45 with a single stage single supercharger was used as it could easily be fitted to the standard f
  6. The answer is: no! (to me, at least ) Few words on the kit: it's well known, and as Troy Smith pointed out in my WIP thread (see here if you're interested), has some shape issues, concerning mainly wings and fuselage shape. I didn't feel like I was able to fix them, though, so I decided to build this kit as an experiment for various techniques such as, for instance, salt chipping (first time ever for me), an doing my own mask for roundels. No aftermarkets used, but definitely some scratch - building involved: - cables and wires and few other details inside the cockpit - radio switches
  7. Hi all, So this is my second RFI but my first WIP. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234979665-148-spitfire-vbmalta/ It's not my normal scale and my first try ant any sort of detail like this and scratch building (very tiny bit in the cockpit but it counts). The kit is the old tool airfix vb.... not the best kit in the world but it came out OK, I definitely learnt a lot (like buy the new tool one). So the aircraft! Spit vb from malta flown by this chap Squadron leader johnny lynch, an American pilot who joined the Eagle squadrons then transfered to malta, after that h
  8. Photo Etch Detail Sets & Masks for Airfix Spitfire Mk Vb 1:48 Eduard Airfix's new 1/48 Spitfire Mk.Vb (reviewed here) was a most welcome and unexpected addition to their 1.48 Spitfire range. As noted by the reviewer the kit is excellent though there is room for some aftermarket improvement. Eduard have come forward with a few of these with these sets. Interior Self-Adhesive Set FE695 This is comprised of a pre-printed, self-adhesive fret. The pre-painted set starts off with a host of small parts for the cockpit, including a multi-layered instrument panel, details for the rudd
  9. After realising that I participated in over 200 posts I have yet to present a model for inspection. I have a Hasegawa Hurricane and Airfix BF109f on the bench. I finally completed my FW 190-A3. So this is my actually my second completed model. it is also my first attempt at some sort of base. I started the model just over two weeks ago and was in a rush to finish it last night (13/8/14) )so that I could present it as a gift to a young Chinese lad that I have been helping prepare for his IELTS test. A few weeks ago we were practising the "listening exercises" and all I think of at th

  11. Good evening. I have just bought the Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Vb. I quite fancy doing an alternative colour scheme, I have seen pictures of the restored BM597 in the sky/tan/green. Does anyone know where I could possibly get similar decals. I also I have really enjoyed using Tamiya spraycans recently, what colour is the correct one for RAF tan, is it AS15? Finally, am I correct in thinking that Tamiya doesn't do SKY in a spraycan? (I've seen various suggestions to use an IJN colour but could do with advice.) Any help appreciated. Mark,
