Thoroughly enjoyed your build, the way you've weathered it is just amazing. Love the oil stains and the panel tonal variations, just looks real!

Wonderful,....simply wonderful,.......what a great model with superb paintwork!

I`m currently in the middle of building two of these kits and I`ll be happy if they come anywhere near this standard,.....I wish!!

Cheers

Great stuff. A spit in this scheme is a sight to behold and this is one of the best.

I'll be a happy man if I can ever get close to your level of model building. Absolutely superb effort.

Thanks to all of you guys for your great words :) I found out i forgot to add the pitot tube under wing... :banghead: so i ll fix this tomorrow :)

to Mike yea, you are right, there should be yellow tips on the prop :( but one day i was notthinkingahead and glued the propeller on the nose before i did paint the tips.. aaand now i would have to mask the whole model to not have yellow overspray here and there.. :( (yes, yellow colour seriously HATES me and does not matter how small part i need to spray, i always get overspray all around the kit! :D )

I've got five or six of these new Eduard Spitfires in mk.IX (early and late) and mk.VIII versions but with work like yours popping up on the forum I'm scared to start mine! That is brilliant modelling, thanks for sharing it.

I paint the prop tips with a hairy stick on 1/72 aircraft, no masking, just painting by eye. Trust me, no one will know......

thanks

I ll think about it Mike :) but because the kit was built as a gift, i do not need superb historical accuracy, so i might as well just leave it as it is. But thanks for tip about the tips ;)

Mark do not be scared at all! :) The kit itself is AMAZING!! And i always say - if i can make it, anyone can ;) One just needs the right tools, look around how others are doing that and that and also have the courage to try new things :) So good luck and i ll be happy to see more spitfires around! :D

You've done it again Wolwe - the finish, weathering and chipping all look so real, and the added detail is superb!

I really like the results of using the masks instead of decals. That may be the next idea I try and steal - I mean gratefully borrow - from you.
