Here are a few photos of a model I finished recently. It is a Spitfire Mk. IXc in 1/48th scale.

The model was crafted using the Tamiya Mk. Vb kit as a basis and the ICM Mk. IXc kit for the engine covers and radiators.

I also used a variety of resin accessories from Ultracast range for:

  • Wheels
  • Cockpit door
  • Control surfaces
  • Guns
  • Propeller
  • Exhausts

The markings depict an aircraft used by the Greek Air Force during the Greek civil war circa 1947-9.

I used Montex masks for the roundels and the shark teeth, plus Barracuda decals for stenils. The colours are Dark Green-Ocean Grey upper surfaces over Medium Sea Grey undersurfaces. The paints came from the Xtracolor range.

Hope you like it!
