Tamiya Spitfire MK.XVIe

Recommended Posts

Hi I just order the the flat wires and turn bugles from Radub RB Productions for the Bristol so in the mean time I started on this fantastic kit and because a friend wanted one to so why not make 2.

 

The detail is fantastic I just did two shades of green I now will start on panel lines after that I do a lighter shade to finish the green interior.

the black part come next.

Cool, great idea!

 

Saves time setting up I guess. I may do the same when I get around to building my Mk VIII and IX.

 

I think this is the first XVI kit I've seen being built so I'll be following this one.

Hi very busy with the glue assembled the wings very careful not to wipe out any detail and a bit of putty on seam top and lower half of the wing only the outer two little cannon blank part needed really some attention.

Funny I expected the cannons leaving the bays open Tamiya just did not make them still closing them did not give any trouble panels fit is perfect.

Next is back to finish the interior painting work.

Hi thx Mike yes I try to clean everything so I can spray the the black base coat for Alclad in one go and clean the plastic from any choclate finger prints hehe.

Here the progress some of the parts like on the engine are dry fit and I keep them like this so painting and detail work is easyer.
