Counter Insurgency Spitfire, Indochina, 1947

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Thought I`d show some photo`s of my just completed Eduard, Weekend Edition 1/48 Spitfire Mk IX

Completed to represent a French Airforce Mk IX of: GC 1/4 `Dauphine`, Nha Trang, Indochina, 1947

Not quite OOB this time as after some research it became apparent that most French Spitfires in the theatre.....

had `E` wings fitted and not `C`s as the decal instructions suggested.

So had to modify the wings to suit which was a pain as I`d already 3/4 built the kit.

The decals were from Berna Decals Sheet, BD 48-18

Otherwise just added seat belts and had to remove the aerial wires I fitted as I noticed at last minute they didn`t appear to have them.

Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking

Cheers Russ

Excellent model, the weathering on the tail sells it for me, looks just right on the flag markings.

Another stunner Russ. Your Spit looks great in those markings. It still amazes me what you can do with a brush. You are a master artist sir! Don

Very nice indeed. You've captured the war weary look typical of French aircraft of the period.
