Airfix/Hasegawa Frankenfire XII (New Imgur photos 15/10)

Recommended Posts

Hi folks!

 

Finally received my Montex markings masks so managed to get this finished. It's the Airfix Spitfire XII mashed together with a spare (length corrected) Hasegawa fuselage - I'm not a big fan of the Airfix fuselage as I think it looks too 'plump'. Rudder is a spare from an Eduard IXc, wing chord reduced to match the Eduard planform. Kit box, instructions and decals were destroyed by a leaky roof back in the UK, hence the national markings are from the spares box, codes and serial are by Montex.

 

Thanks for looking!

 

Chris

 

p.s. please forgive the dust - it's hard to avoid it in the desert!

 

P.P.S. links updated to Imgur in the wake of the photobucket debacle

Can't find any faults with that approach!

Looks terrific too!

Actual desert dust just sells the weathering even more :angel:

Thank you for all your kind comments! I’ve added some new photos of this model to replace the dead photobucket links from the first post.

Looking really nice to me! And it is not even close to beeing dusty compared to my stuff, that is not anywhere near a desert.. ;)

Excellent paint-job!
