1:32 Spitfire MkVIII "Fargo Express" (Tamiya)

Recommended Posts

that looks superb - I struggled to cram that much detail in a 1/18 Spit - doing it in 1/32 just blows my mind!

 

bloody incredible..

I'm sure i will

 

I'm planning to finish the IP this weekend which will allow me to start bringing the entire floor assembly together and work on Radu's Sutton harness

 

Cheers

So, here we have the first "building block" of the cockpit.

 

Instruments are a mix of my own design (MDC) and Airscale. Once applied over a gloss surface, they are brushed with Microsol and color details corrected, such as the colored instrument rims. It's not perfect but i think it will be OK. Once dry, each instrument is sealed with a drop of Tamiya clear mixed with Smoke and Yellow to give the correct hue for the white (instrument decals are always too white for the scale)

 

I've assembled the rudder pedals and next job is to tackle the compass, then add the rudder cables and glue that asembly to the bulkhead assembly.

 

Slowly getting there

The pedals are offset since the rudder will be angled

 

Et petit coucou aux masteriens adeptes de la pensee unique :popcorn:
