1/48 Tamiya Spitfire MK VB

Recommended Posts

Just finished this one this morning, started it 2 days ago trying to get the mojo back. Its been 3 weeks since I have even worked on anything. The kit is the Tamiya 1/48 MK VB Trop built OOB except for the decals from Lifelike, painted with Lifecolor paints. Thanks for looking.

Really love the colour fade you have done with this one along with the weathering. I'm guessing the faded look of the dark earth was achieved post shading technique as you can see slightly darker paint on the outside edges.

Nevertheless, looks much more realistic than the "spanish" method that some are doing.

regards,

Jack

Beautiful build. I have one of these on the bench at present to do in markings of Wing Commander Ian Gleed.

Can i ask which Lifecolor paints that you used...look pretty bang on to me!

That's really nice Lloyd. Damn man I wish I could loose my mojo and come back with a build like that. I also have to say I think that os probably the best camo on a desert bird I have ever seen.

Well done mate :clap:
