1/32 Griffon Spitfire FINALLY FINISHED!!

Recommended Posts

Hate it when a build stalls on the bench. You end up misplacing pieces and forgetting what you have already done. Plus you it gives you more time to drop the kit on the floor and split open seems you fought hard to clean up.

PCM kit, 1/32. What you see here is what you get in the box EXCEPT the crew door (aftermarket since I lost the original), cannon barrels (broke one snipping from the plastic tree), and I handmade the seat belts with lead foil. Nice kit that isn't a "shake and bake", but has a good level a detail and if you are careful with the dry fitting...goes together pretty well.

Cheers

It worth the effort, the satisfaction of a completed kit. And you should be more than satisfied, well done. Looks great, I espcially like the subtleness of the wear and tear!

Collin,

EXQUISITE looking. SPITFIRE with lovely subtler scuffed wear and tear-weathering.

Very nice and like the clear crisp photography too..

What did you use for that super weathered look..good work using the lead foil for seat belts...

Colin,

Great save. The Spit looks fantastic. Outstanding camo paint scheme, decaling is near on perfect, and your weathering is just right.
