A pair of Spitfires.

Recommended Posts

Two Airfix Mk1s.

One in 1/48, another in 1/72, a long term project to build K5054.

Good to see Spitfires getting finished. How are you going to replicate the exhausts?

I think I will be using black decals for the exhausts.

Cracking on with the 1/48

I do like the Xtracrylics, just the right consistency to spray straight.

And more filler on K5054, trying to replicate the puttied and sanded appearance of the original.

Decals, undercarriage and aerials on.

Looking like a Spitfire now.

Almost there.

My mat varnish is a little satin, but my airbrush nozzle is kaput as well.

Need to finish the prop and ad rear view mirror and will call it done.

Calling the 1/48 done.

Leaving the satin finish as is.

Scratch built two rear view mirrors...

Will take some better pictures in daylight.
