Very nice build - close up pictures like these can really show up any faults. Beautifully finished and weathered too - looks every inch the war weary warrior. I have seen the MRP DE/DG before and haven't really been convinced by the colours, particularly the Dark Earth, but this looks good.

 

Cheers

Wow - congrats to a really beautiful model. I would say this one of the best looking Spitfire models I have seen this year.

 

Cheers,

Nicely done model. 

 

My only criticism is the way the clear parts look like an afterthought, as they do match the rest of the airframe.  Clear parts and the way some modeller's address them are a pet peeve of mine.

 

Cheers

Nice! great job on the weathering and dirt.

What did you use for the panel line wash?

Everything :) but mainly Shadow for Desert Brown on the bottom (Sky & Black) and DAK wash for upper surfaces.bUzeowu.jpg

 

Those centeres I wiped (like a dry brush) by Landing Gear wash.

Below a few photos of painting bottom.

Wow! She's heavily weathered, that's for sure. And I'm not normally a fan. But that works. That really works. Excellent build, finish and photos. My only observation (and I speak with absolutely NO experience of them) is the MRP Dark Earth just feels somehow ever so not quite right.
