Another 1/32 Spitfire. The cheap (Revell) one!

Recommended Posts

With mojo running low I decided I needed a cheap and cheerful build. Out came Revell's Mk IX Spitfire. Adding a pilot obviated the need for lots of cockpit detailing (as well as demonstrated my ineptitude at figure painting). Aside from the pilot its OOB. Markings are RCAF  416 Squadron out of Tangmere in 1944 as per the kit. The major markings are sprayed using montex masks. The invasion stripes are speculative on my part as I have no evidence this aircraft ever had them. Call it modelling licence and anyway  I just like the look of them. 1944 Spitfire without invasion stripes is like alcohol free beer - missing something. Painted with  Mr Color RAF late war set. I must confess that I'm really impressed with the paints. They spray easily and dry quickly to a hard satiny finish,

It may be cheap but it looks great! I really like the weathering effect you achieved, especially around the engine cowl area. Great job!
