new tool Airfix Spitfire Mk 1 and ICM leichte Panzerspähwagen 222

After three weeks of relative inactivity due to a change of job, time to get back to work before the colder weather prevents me from getting anything at all done..

The new Airfix Spitfire looks to be a superb model - a low parts count for the younger modeller (36) and well detailed enough for the afficionado. Couldn't resist picking up enough boxes for all the options on the Southern Expo Hornchurch vs. the Luftwaffe decal sheet

Although this is a Mk VIII cockpit it provides useful detail for the correct grey-green interior colour, the brown of the composite material from which the seat is made and the black leather seat cushion

Also opened up the neat ICM 222 today - MMI had a nice 'walkaround' of a restored example in a recent issue used as the backdrop for my pictures


  1. Just out of curiosity what do you use for the "correct" interior colour?


  2. ..I used 02 Grey/green rather than the usual 'interior green'
