South African Spitfire XVI


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Here's my latest build. It's the 1/32 Tamyia Spitfire XVI, incredible kit, it really is. I used Barracudacast cockpit door, threaded wheels and rocker covers.

Painted with Xtracolour E.D.S.G. and Lifecolor M.S.G. and the decals are from AllyCat.

Thanks for looking and hope you like her.

Gerry

The last shot was taken at the Irish Model Soldier Society annual show over the weekend where she earned a silver medal.

Superb! :thumbsup:

The scheme is very familiar as I did the same one in 1/48 scale for the Spitfire STGB last year.

Edit: and can I just point out that the aircraft is actually a late build Spitfire IXe, not a XVI.

Thanks Enzo,

Have I got the correct wing then for a IXe? :huh:

Yes. The bubbletop IXe and XVIe were pretty much identical externally.

I didn't know that which opens up an load of modelling possibilities for me in 1/48, now back to the research!!!!

Thanks for that and to everyone for their comments. :bounce:

Lovely, nice to see a Springbok and some orange, white and blue! Fantastic Spit, really well finished, congratulations on your prize.

Theres lots of springboks flying around where i am???

Pity, the orange white and blue looks soooooo much better than the new cookie cutter...
