Here's another completion to celebrate getting my access back through my AT&T device. It's the the old tool Airfix Spitfire Mk.I finished as an aircraft from 66 Sqn at RAF Upwood in 1939. The two blade prop was snagged from the new Mk.I kit as it was going spare anyway. The decals are from a Kits at War sheet. I think the aircraft should have the early unarmoured windscreen, but I can live with the discrepancy. 

This is one of the few models I've ever painted twice; the first time I painted it, the clear gloss coat crazed all over the bottom of the model. So I stripped it down and started over.

Doesn't look half bad. I have one of the old tool somewhere in the stash and would be pleased if it turned out like that.

Thanks! It's a simple kit, but Airfix got the shapes basically right, I think. Some of their more recent efforts at Spitfire kits have not been nearly as good.

A great looking Spit.  The old tooling scrubs up pretty well to my mind.  I do like these early schemes.  The pilot needs to shake a leg though, what with that ankylosaurus creeping up on him.

Great result on the repaint. I wouldn't have known had you not said.

So much wrong with that kit. So much right with what you've done with it. Excellent!

Looks great! Those early mk.Is are fun.  You did a nice job with it.
