1/48 Eduard Spitfire VIII SEAC 152 Sqn


Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

Here's the latest one off the bench - Eduard's recent Spitfire VIII. This was my first time building one of Eduard's lovely Spitfires and now I see what all of the fuss was about! I'll certainly be building more in the future. Thanks for looking!

- Brassin cockpit
- Brassin wheels
- Ultracast 1-pc cowl
- Ultracast exhaust
- Ultracast spinner/prop
- Quickboost cockpit door
- Master gun barrels
- BarracudaCals decals

Great build. What matt varnish have you used?

Great Build.

Brewer, What is your opinion of the Brassin cockpit and how does it compare to the kit cockpit? I'm considering one for my Spitfire Mk. IX but the cost is almost as much as another kit.

Personally I will not be using the Brassin cockpit again. Detail isn't bad, certainly better than the kit parts, but for me it was not nearly as "drop fit" as advertised. Perhaps it was user error, but in the future I will be using the new cockpit set from BarracudaCast for my Eduard Spits

Great choice of scheme Jason, looks magnificent. Have you used Mr Colour paints on this one? Top job!

Cheers...

Thanks! I used Tamiya for the Dark Green and Medium Sea Grey and a custom mix of Tamiya and Gunze for the Dark Earth, all acrylics

As I've said on FB, really a masterpiece!

What's next on the workbench?

Next up is a RAF P-47 Mk.I from the Tamiya Razorback kit :)
