Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk V b

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

This is my first scale model in over a year now. This is also my first Aircraft in 1/48 scale. I have always built aircraft in 1/72 before this.

I made a few mistakes with this one, but I think by now I understand that this is part of modelling. Also I was never really concerned with historical accuracy. I am concerned with the build and the finish. I tried some preshading and post shading on this one. It is hard to tell in the photos, however you can clearly see it in the video.

Here it is my completed Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk V (b). This is the old tool.

I have gone for a well maintained aircraft with some stains on it and some faded paint. So something not too dirty but stained if that makes sense.

 

My camera has been damaged and so the photos do not do it justice. The video however does do it justice. I hope you all enjoy the video. (the music signifies a comeback!)

 



Here are some photos.

Looks good.  What camo scheme uses Earth and Light Sea Gray?

Thanks mate. I think its one of the RAF schemes. Its in one of Airfix spitfire colour schemes.
