1/72 Airfix Supermarine Spitfire F Mk.22 + Eduard PE set


Recommended Posts

Always a pleasure seeing your aircraft builds Stix; ESPECIALLY when it's a Spitfire. Superb build, finish and weathering; I genuinely thought it was 1/48! Heading straight to the WIP (can't believe I missed it)...

Incredibly good Spitfire!

My hat's off to you on seeing your adeptness at working with PE.

Amazing stuff, and I agree with others - it belies the actual scale.

A masterclass in brush painting - you really must give us a lesson in how to achieve such a fantastic finish and exquisite restrained weathering. Simply lovely!

Hi Mark. Hope you are well. Thank you very much for kind comments. If you are interested - I have made a video of how I do the basic main painting, with flat brushes, which can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwdZtF_dpDY

Kind regards,

Stix

Really rather lovely. It's great little kit (Airfix what have you done with it, it's disappeared!) and you've really made it shine with all the extra bits & bobs. Super-nifty brush work to polish it off.

Hi Justin. I hope you are well. Thank you very much for your very kind comments. Yes, I had noticed there was not as many of these about as before. It's a shame because, as you said, it's a great little kit. It's nicely detailed out of the box and goes together quite nicely too. 

Kind regards,

Stix

A bit late to this build but I can only echo the praise heaped upon your work Stix, a truly lovely bit of work and I am deeply envious of your brush work skills. 

Hi Horatio. Sorry I'm late with my reply too. Managed to forget all about this one!! Way too much going on. Thank you very much for your kind comments. Much appreciated!

This is an amazing Spitfire. You really did a perfect job here! 👍The Mk 22/24 is actually one of my favorite aircraft and from what I have seen from the comments above I am not the only one who is wondering why this superb 1/72 Airfix Kit has now been out of production since 2016. It´s way about time for a reissue.
