Hi folks, Coming back to LSP after a couple of years or so break. I have a couple of unconcluded projects in the forum a Tamiya Birdcage and a Hasegawa Ki 44 Shoki. But to gain momentum I was tempted after some time to do a desertic scheme Spitfire MkIXc. I will transcript what is described from the Eagle cals description: WD-W EN354: This was a MkV upgraded to MkIX specs. This aircraft was operated from La Sabala airfield in North Tunisia, pretty close to Tunis the capital city. Fitted with five spokes wheels, small carburetor intake and large over wing blisters. It seems that this was part of the RAF inventory and it was transferred to the USAAF. RAF markings where over sprayed with dark earth. So a pretty unusual Spit camouflage, lots of fun doing the painting. The only AM item at this point are the North Star 5 spoke wheels, which are supposed to arrive in a couple of weeks. Cheers
In the mean time the Mustang paint is cured and if I can find the lower cowling, I'm launching this new project. This is, IMHO, the sleekest of all Merlin powered Spitfires, Supermarine Spitfire MkXVIe RACER 6. Cooper Air Race July 1949. I'll use Lifelike decals 32-011 and Barracuda post war 3 slots wheels with radial thread.
