Finished my first Spitfire! =D

Recommended Posts

This is a 1/72 Eduard Kit and I loved it, this is such a good kit.

As well as being my first spit, it as also my first finished aeroplane kit as an adult and I am dead chuffed with how it came out!

Here it is!

I totally agree with you both, I already have another Eduard 1/72 kit and an Academy 1/48th kit to build so I will be having another crack soon!

The top is supposed to be light sky grey and the bottom, Eduard suggest a 50/50 light grey and PRU blue.

I used Vallejo light grey and missunderstanding PRU blue I used 50/50 light grey and Prussian Blue on the bottom, but i think it looks ok.

Is that a HF.VIII? Very nice - one of my favourite Spitfire variants.

Hi Jason.  With that serial it is just an F.Mk.VIII, HFs being rare because the Merlin 61/63 were already good performers there.  I think that there were a few with Merlin 70s later down the line.  The extended wingtips were normal for early Mk.VIII production, often removed in service because they overstressed the wing roots when the fighter got involved in lower-level combats.  The colour scheme was specifically for the HF Role, being officially Medium Sea Grey over PRU Blue.
