  1. Hi, This is 1/32 Spitfire Mk.XII with the markings of EB-B MB882 from No.41 sqn RAF Tangmere, Sussex England in October 1943 The base kit is Hasegawa Spitfire MkVb. I have used Paragon Spitfire Mk.XII conversion set with Warbird universal resin C wings Other additions used in this Project are as follows: - Eduard instrument panels and seat belts - Barracudacast resin seat - Barracudacast Spitfire cockpit parts - Grey Matter Spitfire ventral lower wing part - Grey Matter main wheels - Master Details horizontal tails - Barracudacast pilot Access door - Archer fine Transfer surface details fasteners - SAC landing legs Paints are Gunze and Tamiya acrylics Roundels are from spare parts of DK decals. Customized Fuselage codes (EB-B) are from Customhobbydecals Australia. Serial numbers and letters (MB882) are from Xtradecal. Cockpit mirror , beam approach antenna, ventral tank and its hooks are from Tamiya spare parts.

  2. Thanks a lot; the exhausts may not be perfect, but it didn't look too bad to me. Parts of very old Paragon. I accepted them as they are. Cheers
  3. Finally Spitfire Mk.XII is finished. Cockpit mirror and beam approach antenna are from Tamiya spare parts. IFF road antenna and carburator intake ice guard are scratcbuild. More pictures will be post on RFI section later
  4. I guess someone had to pay this money for these kits to be re released. Murphy's rule.
  5. Logically it is too big for me, but the logic losts generally in this area. The result is open to surprises for me.
  6. Approaching the finish line. Access door is from Barracudacast. Paragon's propeller blades were carefully separated from their wedges, and now ready to be painted
  7. Still it makes me feel good knowing it will happen soon Also, it would be great if you could put a hand on Revell's He-111 clear nose cone
  8. A few progress; I used Grey Matter main wheels. These are designed for Hasegawa's leg so it needs minor modification for SAC landing leg.
  9. Thanks Troy Ah Ok. Thanks for reminding me, I didn't know about this set. Noted
  10. By the way, after building this multi brand Spitfire XII, I hope that any company to release a large-scale new tool Spitfire Mk.XII model. Remember Murphy's rule..
  11. Thanks Graham You mention Grey Matter nose right? Yes you are right, Grey matter's nose and its bumps more accurate. But this solid nose would add a lot of weight to the front section with resin wings. And for my opinion it requires more work on the fuselage connection line. That's why I used the nose of the Paragon from the last century. By the way I promised myself years ago that I would use it one day. Yes, the nose part is not 100% accurate, but I was encouraged by the models made with Paragon in the past.
  12. It's time to stand up I have used SAC metal landing legs. Ventral fuel tank hooks are from Tamiya Spitfire Mk.IX Exhaust stains and some weathering applied
