Of particular interest in the picture is just how far the cockpit entry flap stands out from the fuselage side. A common mistake made by modelers is to have it too close to the side. However, the flap was hinge-bound and stood well out as shown in the picture.

G Day folks,

These days I've not only being eating large amounts of delicious food, I'm a serious guy I've being doing some modelling as well.

So here in some advancements on cockpit, assembly and preshading. After that I'll start dressing her with camouflage. Already have a plan for the uneven D-Day stripes, but I'll show you later.

Enjoy the festivities, Merry Christmas

Here in some more advancement, lower surfaces already painted and a little of paler postshade generating some contrast. Some more postshading in different shades after that and going for upper surfaces :pilot:

Hi Rob:

No resin parts included in this Profipack kit. I added Ultracast resin wheels that from my perspective look better than the ones that come with the kit. By the way ailerons and wing tips where primed before assembly. Cheers and thank you for the nice comments,

Here the camo already sprayed and post-shaded with paler tones.

Cool Rob, enjoy the kit, :pilot: besides the wheel wells and exhaust assembly which took me more time than expected, this is a beautiful kit, the engraved rivets and panel lines are gorgeous.

Rob, one important step to have in mind as well is that the dihedral of a real Spitfire is 6deg. I know that it's dificult to mesure that dihedral, but I would sugest to pull up the wing tips with masking tape right after bonding the wings to the fuselage, and let it cure during the night. Otherwise the dihedral will be a way less than 6deg, and they will look almost parallel to the water line. I dry test before bonding and that is the way it looked for me.

That 6 deg dihedral is part of the character of the Spitfire :pilot:

Decals already on and sealed D-Day stripes will come later on because I need the decals as a pattern.

One distinctive feature is that in the SZ code it's written inside of the S the notice "Wipe your shoes" in polish.
