I finally bought myself an airbrush after many decades of being a brush-only kind of guy. And what do we get when we're trying something new?

A 1/72nd Airfix Spitfire, of course.

Which ended up like this:

Quite happy with the result (apart from losing the tailwheel somewhere along the way. Oops.)

Excellent tidy build what beauty. As for the tail wheel I would email Airfix as they are brilliant as sending out replacement parts.

Lovely! I've just got one of these and I'll be glad if it's anything like as nice as yours!

Lovely Spitfire! Well done with the airbrush. As sunray said; Airfix will send out a replacement tailwheel for a small charge. And as 426 mentioned you need swap the undercarriage around. Keep up the good work with that airbrush!

Nice work on the camouflage scheme. How did you tackle the masking? Always tricky on such a small subject.

Thanks guys.

The undercarriage - I don't know what's wrong with me, I did exactly the same thing on the 1/48th Seafire 47 I built a couple of years back. I've got some sort of left-right blindness, I swear.

Spare parts - I'm in the US at the moment, is this a worldwide thing?

Masking - paper cutouts held on by masking tape:

Seemed to work pretty well.

Excellent model! Airbrushes are great fun, aren't they? Airfix's spare parts service are excellent in the UK at least, I'm sure they'll send parts abroad, it has the option to on the drop down menu. http://www.airfix.com/contact

Top work :)
