Airfix 1/24 Spitfire Mk1a

Recommended Posts

Hi there Alan

 

I was thinking I might try to make some mask's and do the markings myself. I quite like the look of the 610 Sqn machines. In particular DW*E flown by

Plt Off Constantine Pegge. Going by the colour profile in the book Spitfire mark I/II Aces 1939-41 in the Osprey aircraft of the aces series there are no under wing roundles

or aircraft serial numbers. This should make it easier to paint!(we'll see!)

 

cheers

 

Richard.

Hi all

 

Can I join with this kit?

 

Of course mate! Looking forward to it. This comes from my very favourite period in box art history, and is just pure nostalgia.

That sounds really cool, I want to eventually do mine as DW-K,

as this was the first Spitfire I ever built (Revell Mk I kit) and my first

introduction to 610 Squadron.

 

I have the Osprey book too, so know which profile you mean

 

Really look forward to your build, especially the mask part

 

Regards

 

Alan

Wow, nice one.

That kit's nearly older than me.

 

Nice to see another Cantabrian on LSP.

Hi guys

 

thanks for the interest. Just a wee update today. I managed to do the prop and get the electric motor going. To my surprise the new Airfix motors fit

into the bulkheads(the ones on the spru with the stand) on the original kit. Makes life a little easier.

Cheers for looking,

 

Richard :thumbsup:
