Lend-Lease...1/48 Supermarine Spitfire LF.IXe Soviet Airforce/PVO

Recommended Posts

Very nice choice - a PVO (Air Defence) Mk.IX. That's one I want to do myself, in 1/72nd scale.

 

Regards,

 

Jason

Looks good to me, must get around to building a VVS one sometime in the future.

 

Cheers

We´ve seen there´s some discussion about the lightning machine on the web, clipped or no clipped wing tips, e wing or c wing...you see all sorts of versions as models, profiles and decals.

My dad now reconsidered and will do this scheme from the AML sheet

Your dad seems to have a Soviet theme running lately. No bad thing in my opinion :D

Wasn´t intended, but often one model leads to another and suddenly there´s an ongoing theme 😀

The Spit will be the last Soviet/Russian model this year.

But most probably the IIAF and FAR theme will continue...not sure yet.

gonna be "white lightning"

again...don't trust the profile...  AFAIK the there is not a decent photo.

But, most likely just post war,    as it seems that a lot of VVS types got repainted in in summer 45 (keep the ground crews busy?)  including Lend Lease types,  with mono coloured uppers....

see

But,  the VVS repaints post war are confirmed, and this maybe of interest, buried in the Sovietwarplanes site

VVS Spitfire IXe red 2 1948

 

Note this was 1948, the VVS carried on using Spitfires for sometime post war!  

 

by this stage Green AMT-4 over AMT-7 blue undersides I'd suggest.  Note the coloured rudder trim tab

Already stumbled across this BM thread, one of the reasons my dad turned now to a different scheme.

Thanks for the info 😉

The instruments have no detail and there is no decal provided in the kit, therefore my dad did some drybrushing to simulate some detail. Good enough, won´t see much with the closed fuselage.

fuselage glued together

the ICM Spits need some more work...

48896837117_ef2cc16861_b.jpgDSC_0002 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr

 

removed the bulkhead and some parts of the engine again to make the fuselage halves fit better

48896112288_c24532be22_b.jpgDSC_0003 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr

 

already tested it, the cockpit "tub" fits into the fuselage without major problems

cockpit inserted, also inserted the engine firewall bulkhead again so that the lower fuselage has the correct width to fit the wing

seatbelt arrangement original style

DA CAPO!

 

My dad wasn´t satisfied anymore how the kit turned out so far. So it went into the trash and he started again with a Hasegawa kit, less problems and work.
