Looking good Carl :thumbsup: I should really finish my Mk.IV.

Thanks Don! I hope you can get back to your Spitfire.

Great looking Spitfires, Carl!

Thanks Kev! Next time, I won't try to do four at once. Two is plenty. :P

Oh my those are beautiful

Love painted on markings - much better than decals


Thanks Thomas!

And yes, painted markings look so much better than decals. Plus there's no clear coat to worry about. That being said, the ones I used on TD248 worked really well for me.

You really are a Spit specialist Carl....both look stunning. Couldn't agree more with Thomas about painted on markings being so much better than decals.....and I must dig my Mk IX out and finish it too.
Max


Thanks Max! I'm finally coming to the end of the big pile of Tamiya Spitfires. I have three left in the stash to build and I'm waiting on a Griffon nose for those.

Hopefully you'll have your IX back on the bench soon.

Well, they're both done now. I added the final small details to both- pitot tubes, antenna mast, and canopies.

Unfortunately due to our home renos, I don't have a place to take better pics at the moment so these will have to do for now.

Thanks again to everyone for dropping in.

Now to clutter up the bench again

Wow, Carl, they're both beautiful! I have to admit I really like the NMF one the most, what a striking and attractive scheme!

Cheers

Thanks Shaka!

I've got 9 Spitfires completed altogether. 8 are Tamiya kits, one is the Revell/Matchbox.

The funny thing is I never built a Spitfire in any scale until these.

As for a group shot, it'll have to wait until our renos are done as I can't get to my display case.

Thanks Jim! It is a nice change from the usual camo schemes we usually see on Spitfires. It was based on a paint scheme that was on a high back 21 post war which I'm hoping to build as well.
