Spitfire XIV 1/48 Eduard+ Airfix kitbash


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

several months ago I started a kitbash combining parts from the Airfix Spitfire FRXIV and Eduard Spitfire VIII. The in progress build is here.

After a long procrastination, I finally completed the painting and assembly. I used Tamiya paints. The plane is coded UM G from 152 squadron, with the famous black panther.

I sourced the panther from a very old Aeromaster decal sheet, the rest of the markings are painted with masks cut with a Silhouette cutter. 

 

To have a kind of generic base, I constructed a kind of 'half hangar' from blue styrofoam and plastic card. Here are some pictures:

 

P1060783

 

 

P1060784

 

 

P1060785

 

 

 

P1060786

 

 

I hope you will like it,

 

best,

 

Christian.

Looks wonderful, I really like the eggshell finish and Eastern theatre markings. I've generally not been a fan of the look of high-backed griffons but somehow, this one looks very nice indeed. Not that you need it at all but did you see Paul budzik's video on this conversion?
