1/48 Spitfire MK.IXc, 312 Sqn, 1944.


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Here is my recently completed 1/48 Eduard Spitfire MK. IXc, marked as MJ296 of 312 (Czechoslovak) Squadron during August 1944. Flown by the then F/LT Otto Smick, who was credited with 8.5 'kills' and 3 V-1s downed by September 1944. He was shot down in this aircraft on 3rd September 1944 over Holland, safely making it back to England. Sadly he was later killed after being shot down on 28th November 1944.

 

Pretty much straight out of the box, bar a set of AML vinyl camouflage masks. Paints are from MRP and weathering is a mixture of Abteilung oils, AK pencils and Tamiya weatherings sets. The build thread is here

 

Quite happy with it, only my second 1/48 Spitfire.

Very good looking Spitfire indeed!

 

Slightly drooped elevators would've dotted the i:s, since that is very typical of a parked Spit. And the elevatosr are a separate part in the kit, so no hacking required… 😉

 

Nice modelling!

 

Kind regards,

 

Joachim
