Ok, I broke out a paint brush and managed to redo the legs in the right colour.

Couldn't tell that it was done using a hairy stick!

 

Looks great!

Looking excellent Carl! The finish line is in sight now. 

 

Those old hairy sticks still come in useful! (Says he, prolific user of hairy sticks still who is stuck in a 1978 modelling time warp!

Thanks Shaka and Steve! I really avoid using hairy sticks as much as possible. Now just to wait for the masks to arrive so I can finish the build.

This is looking sweet.  It's great to see a Spitfire in something other than camouflage.

 

 

Cheers,

Michael

Thanks Michael!

It looks like the masks I ordered won't be arriving in time for me to finish this before the deadline. :(

Once they do get here, I'll hopefully get it moved to the Clear the Bench GB and finish her there.

Coming along beautifully, looking forward to the end product - in a line-up with the others you've got on the go, of course.  No pressure though ... ;)

Haven't looked in on this one for a while Carl! Excellent job on that silver finish!! Not a hint of graininess, very even density. Great save on the landing gear too.

 

Spectacular looking Spitfire! Can't wait to see her finished up, one down...
