ICM 1/48 Spitfire Mk. XVI

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With the Typhoon finally done its time to pick the next build. I recently listed my entire stash (who's size is a well kept secret) to ScaleMates. One of the nice things about that is I now have some statistics. It turns out the most popular kit in my stash is ..... Spitfire - 9 kits of different models. I looked up my work room stash and noticed a pair of Spitfires - a Fujimi one and an ICM.

A double-build came to mind but when I open the kits and cleaned them up it became very clear that these are way too different to allow that. The Fujimi is a 80' era, ~20 so parts, very crude and simple and rumor has it it's not even 1/48.  The ICM on the other parts has probably the most detailed 1/48 spitfire out there with lots of parts and options.

 

So, it won't be a double-build but I will try to start them together and see how it goes.

You can follow up on the Fujimi build here.

 

The ICM kit is quite detailed:

It's also heavily covered with mold grease. I soaked it for a while but think I need to re-do that.

Interesting. Mine is moulded in (yuk) white plastic. Will watch and learn with interest.

I am currently building an ICM Mk IX. Very detailed and nice soft plastic but there were some fit issues. Looking forward to seeing how yours comes along
