1/24 Airfix Spitfire

Recommended Posts

Spots sanded smooth, repainted, and glosscoated. Applied decals given to me by my brother; from the new release of the Spit - meaning Cartograph decals. These did not fail me. Glosscoated again. Applied a wash. Satin coated. When that's dry I will satin coat the bottom. When that is dry I will do the final weathering and call it done.

I painted the exhausts black, as a primer... then I painted them Humbrol 98 chocolate brown. Then I drybrushed Humbrol 55 bronze upon that... and finally drybrushed Humbrol 98 again on top of THAT. Trying to achieve a burnt iron look is very tricky, but I think I did alright. Will try to snap some good pictures in the sunlight later on.

Thanks, Mark. :)


Here're the exhausts:



And dryfitted:




I still haven't varnished her underneath, but I'll get around to that when I can drag myself out of this seemingly endless hole of depression I've fallen into.


EDIT: Ok, now the post ignores the IMG (I can't type [ i m g ] together as an example because the forum is stupid) put before the link, and thus you end up with forked up links. Enjoy.


Screw you, forum.

Hi Sparz,


The new version of the forum software no longer requires the bbCode to insert images; just pasting the raw link in should be enough to display the image. I've tried to edit your links on my iPad, but it doesn't seem to work there. I'll have to wait until I'm back at my computer to fix them up for you.
