Toy soldiers, wargames and modelling madness.
It needs asking, but is this the same spitfire you started your modelling career with, as mentioned in your "about me"?Finally completing it?Procrastination is one of my more subtle achievements and am wondering that you may be a kindred spirit?We have to know...Regards
ArthurNo! The 1971 'original' has long since departed. And not even I take 42 years to paint a small aeroplane...From what I can remember of the original it wasn't worth the paint.Well done for asking though!
The painted canopies are very effective. I thought they'd only work on small scale planes but they are fine on 1/72nd scale too.
Martin RapierNeeds must when the clear parts aren't! It does look OK though.
I prefer the painted canopies on small scale aircraft myself. Looks pretty good Tim.
Looks fine to me, Tim. I've been thinking - having an Airfix 'Stormovik' (sic) with just 2 of 3 propeller blades intact - of replacing the propeller blades of all my aircraft with clear plastic circles suggesting spinners rotating. The outer edge could be painted a faint yellow or red... Would it work, do you reckon?
Don MI think it looks fine on small aircraft like this and I got away with it on the Blenheim. It'll be interesting to see how well it works on the Lancaster...
Archduke PiccoloClear circles are OK, but they're a bugger to store and are magnets for dust and finger marks. If your models get a lot of handling just lop off the blades and leave it at that.
