Hasegawa 1:48: Pierre Clostermann's Spitfire Mk.IXc


Recommended Posts

To properly make Clostermann's Spitfire, I had to sand down the teardrop shaped bulges on the wings and two fairings. I did it with an Xacto, and made several scratches to the surface that had to be filled with CA. Luckily the plastic was thick enough to resist several sanding sessions. The horizontal stabilizers pushed each other out, and had to be pressed so they could stay in their place. 

The propeller spins, that's a good feature of the kit.

I used Eduard decals for the ID codes. The Hasegawa roundels bulged a bit over the raised detail on the wings, and the underwing roundels had to be broken so they could fit in their place.
