Supermarine Spitfire TR Mk.IX ("Grace" type)

Recommended Posts

Calling this done - although looking at the photots I need to dust her again!

 

What is it about model photography and dust?

 

Anyhow - build thread here.

 

Based upon measurements of a TR. Mk IX fuselage in a jig, along with original Supermarine drawings, she's taken a lot longer than planned - but hopefully my client will like her.

Markings are based upon a wartime 'Eagle Squadron' scheme as a tribute to a brave young American pilot with 133 Squadron, RAF, who lost his life days before the Squadron transferred to the USAAF:  Gene P Neville

Back in a mo with some more (and just noticed a panel line I need to sort).

Cheers Max - much appreciated!

 

The test, of course, is whether my client is happy with it!!  :frantic:

Absolutely stunning Ian!

I have thoroughly enjoyed this build right from the start, and the results are amazing.  I have no doubt your client will LOVE it!  If not.....send her to me LOL.

 

Seriously though, well done mate, a classy conversion!
