Hi all here is my Tamiya Spitfire MK1a (61119)

I finished this back May/June and only just got round to posting here

I decided before starting this kit that I wanted to do something different and try new things 

I finished it as a 19 Squadron spit serial N3200 code QV using Topnotch Cammo and insignia Masks ( a first for me )

Ive tried to replicate it as close as possible when it was lost on operations on 26th May 1940 having been shot down but not before it brought down a Junkers Ju87 

Tamiya paints used throughout the build 

figures from Tamiya and ICM (another first in doing figures) 

Thanks for looking and enjoy 

Happy modelling

That's a great diorama, convincingly recreating the May 1940 event!

 

The only minor niggle concerns the IFF aerials, which were certainly not there in the summer of 1940. The introduction of IFF Mk II was in fact postponed until late autumn, after the Battle, about the same time that the HF radios were changed to VHF radiosets, eliminating the radio aerial wire. All about this can be found in trusty old 'Spitfire Masts and Aerials', http://spitfiresite.com/2010/04/spitfire-masts-and-aerials.html/2

 

Splendid work with both the Spitfire and the well-placed figures!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim

What a great idea for a diorama, and very well executed, looks great.
