Kendzior Posted January 22, 2017 Share Posted January 22, 2017 Hi All My Ki-43s stalled for a moment - just not enough time for hobby, especially airbrushing in the interior (I need at least 2-3 peaceful hours for each session, but it is hard to find even one), therefore I'm slowly progressing other projects, which do not require any airbrush work. Hope will be able to come back to this next week. So, in the meantime, I decided to restart Revell's Spitfire Mk. 22, which I started around a year ago, but gave up temporarily due to its poor fit and lack of detail - and the most important, lack of idea, how to paint it. This time it is most of all an exercise in riveting (using RB tool and must say it is fun) - doing this for the very first time, so didn't want to spoil any better or more expensive kit... Anyway, going to add here some more details from the scratch: upgrade wheel wells and gear covers, add formation lights - this is really a vintage kit and it shows. In the end I hope to get a result, which will look nice in the second row on my shelf in Southern Rhodesian markings. That's how it looks like now: filed almost smooth, riveted, with some new panel lines (and some more to be scribed on), new position lights, drilled out exhaust stacks, upgraded cockpit.... Feel free to comment and stay tuned. Best regards Hubert Jeff, Whitey, MikeC and 7 others 10 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
