Revell Spitfire Mk.Vb with a hint of WIF
« on: June 13, 2021, 10:37:35 PM »
Something i'd been meaning to do for a while for many reasons is a Spitfire done in WW1 colours as a WIF tribute to commemorate those pioneers from WW1.

So here's Revells 1/72 Mk.Vb done in just such a scheme, the green is oil paint everything else is enamel, decals are partly roden and partly Airfix. Overall it's a very nice kit and the interior is nicely detailed and there was no real fit issues with fuselage etc. The molding on the backing plate for the prop is a bit rough, i didn't realise how rough till it was painted and i was fitting it to the spinner. I need to do a bit of fettling on the canopy sections and they're not sitting right but close enough for now.

A touch of builders rights regarding the prop so purists best not scroll down past this point  ;-)
