Another of 2019's builds which has helped fill my top shelf with Spitfires as good liqueur should. 9 of 12 using Airfix 1/72 Mk. I/II/Va kit, Others are Hasegawa's Mk.VIII & IX kits.


Additions include PE seat belts and 3D Kits Spitfire Mk.II conversion kit. This provided new seat, control coulomb, coffman starter bulge and Rotol spinner/propeller. Painted with Mr Surfacer 1000 and Mr Color lacquers for all else. Decals are a mix of kit insignia, 3D Kits nose insignia, name and serial number. I replaced the sky lettering with Micro Decals, these are my go to for code letters. Also used same makers dull red decals for gun port covers. They're super thin, had super adherence and don't bleed through the underlying colours. Panel wash with acrylic Windsor and Newton, streaks using AK interactive streaking mediums. Chipping using Tamiya silver lacquer with sponge.


Thanks for looking.

I love your model. It looks great.


If you want more of the 3D Kits Mk II conversion kits, then I know Jays Models in NZ stock them, and they crop up on eBay quite often.
