Spitfire A-Go-Go and the Revell 1/72nd Spitfire Mk.IIa, new tool...


Recommended Posts

That looks very smart.

 

Two points though (I hesitate to call them critism):

1) I don't think the undercarriage legs would have had tongue links.

This explains:

 

2) the wheelwell colour has been a source of much discussion but I don't believe they would have been Grey-Green. FWIW, I usually go for the underside colour (or Aluminium on very early Spitfire Is).

This thread discusses wheelwell colour:

 

I note that there's some discussion on the RFI regarding the bulge over the wheelwells. I understand that it would have them.

And...since someone else gave us a close-up of their early exhaust stacks, here are mine.  I use a paint mix.  A little Red Leather, some Black and a bit of Brass.

I wonder what is the real color of these exhaust stacks, cos Tamiya suggest metallic grey

No im not saying metallic grey is right, cos i've seen people paint them in the copper color like yours, im just wondering what is really the color.

Burnt iron if you can call that a colour. Whatever they were originally painted they soon took on the burnt metallic brown you see even on current Spitfires.
