Pics so far..
Box of bits
Under carriage damage
Cockpit with ghost pilot
I will be following with interest.
Looks like your Spitfire isn't going to be too happy either!
Good work so far, anyway.
Shame about the pilot, I know Tamiya provide very well dtailed ones in their 48th scale boxes, you could always rob one from a cheap airfix kit?
I'm looking out for pilot figures myself. I know Airfix and Revell do the sets but they both only have a couple of seated pilot figures - all the rest are standing. Preiser do lots of Luftwaffe and US sets but no RAF as far as I am aware.
PS Really good work on the damage!
The Model Catalogue - Pilots & Ground Crew RAF WWII by Revell (02401)
Loving the damaged Spit you've got going.
Surely someone's got a 1/72 pilot they could let you have?!!!
Looking forward to the finished build.
The Spitfire is coming along nicely, just read your post and the fact you are still looking for a pilot!
I had a look in my spares box with no luck, then I remembered I had a box of bits in the attic and in it was a 1/72 pilot figure.
If you want him, P/M me with your address and I will send him to you...er, £3.50 P/P sound fair?!!! lol
I hope you didn't mis-interpret my tounge in cheek price, it comes f.o.c., of course..
I will send him off to you today.
Model air paints. Gave it a coat of gloss varnish and using micro sol applied the decals then another coat of varnish to seal them onto the plane. I then used a black wash to bring out the panel lines and give it that used look.
I also used a black acrylic to simulate an oil leak from the damaged engine, this will also be misted on to the canopy once Ron's pilot arrives safe and sound.
I thought i'd better give the poor bloke somewhere to land so i am just doing a small base showing a stone wall and what will be a wheat field.
All comments good and bad please.
