Hello, this is my 1/32 Tamiya Spitfire, converted from MkIXc to MkIXe; markings are from Isradecal, the figure comes from the Blackdog range...

Great result!

 

Nice to see this wonderful model in alternative markings.

 

I like the NMF and the dio  you have made to display it.

 

Cheers Greg 👍👍

Absolutely superb Spit Lorebor! Stunning! Beautifully done faded natural metal and wonderfully detailed and painted internals. The figure is nicely painted too!

 

Cheers

Magnificent modelling. Even the tool boxes are completely convincing! I can't start to imagine the dedication and work hours that have gone into this masterpiece.

 

Did the Israelis actually paint their crowbars red? 😉

 

Kind regards,

The bare metal is outstanding. Which products did you use, and did you overcoat? Great work!! 

I used Tamiya AS-12, sprayed with my the airbrush and diluted with Tamiya Lacquer Thinner. The darker panels were painted with the same AS-12 added with a drop of Alclad Steel.

After laying the decals, I coated the model with Future diluted with Tamiya X-20A Thinner, did a dark grey oil wash and airbrushed a very light layer of Gunze Flat Clear...

Wow - that is an amazing diorama. Everything is beautifully done. How did you shade the raised areas in the cockpit to give a "shadow" effect? Thank you for sharing.
