1/32 RoG Spitfire Mk II "Aces High" Edition


Recommended Posts

I feel quite encouraged, as this is my first complete build in 14-1/2 years. I know there's two small details missing - the pitot tube under the port side wing, and the reav-view mirror atop the windscreen. The pitot tube is on, I have a small spot to outch up the paint.

 

I failed to ensure the proper slope of the cockpit sub-assembly, so the fuselage - and then the wing-fuselage joints - were wanky. Lots of filler, even Apoxie-Sculpt, levelled out the cliffs.

 

Gunze Mr Color paints for the aircraft, the Eddies were done with store-brand water-based acrylics (Michael's). I had quite a bit of pebbling on the underside color, as well as the clearcoat - hence no bottom view.
