  1. John, This gives a nice overview and some tweaks: https://www.scalemates.com/books/tamiyas-1-32-spitfire-mkixc-and-mkviii-how-build-brett-green--110546# Cheers, Tom
  2. Thanks for the heads-up! Cheers, Tom
  3. I’m all over this Chuk! I’m going to love following your build. The Mohawk is a very distinctive choice! Cheers, Tom
  4. Max, As usual I am late to the party but your build is looking fantastic and that color scheme really shows the beautiful lines of the aircraft! Cheers, Tom
  5. Amazing work! Definitely a Masterclass build. Cheers, Tom
  6. Great work on this! And I will be looking into the Hasegawa reflective film. Thanks for the tip! Cheers, Tom
  7. Thanks Nick for your support and encouragement! I agree, so many opportunities: bombsight, strike camera, canopy side glass panels with blisters, pilot’s seat, Martin upper turret, to name a few. At the same time, the kit is an amazing starting point without any shape corrections necessary, and a fun build. I’m hoping to finally add some paint in the next few days so she can come to life! Cheers, Tom

  10. Maru, You are far too kind! I'm sorry I missed you by three days that year. I was returning from a month in Australia, but heard great things about the show and the PAM visit. Phoenix in August: hardcore! Cheers, Tom
  11. Matt you would love it, and if you can visit the nearby AMARG (“Boneyard”) facility. So much history there, with some amazing aircraft: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/309th_Aerospace_Maintenance_and_Regeneration_Group Cheers, Tom
  12. Great work Chuck! I relived my build viewing yours but you took it so much further. Makes me want to build Pierre Clostermann’s Spitfire IX. Cheers, Tom
  13. Thanks for sharing this Maru! Cheers, Tom
