new 1:32nd scale Revell Spitfire IXc - build review (5)

practically two whole days in the paint shop (ie garage..). In the end I didn't bother masking the camo scheme and managed to achieve a reasonably 'hard' edge freehand. Note the blue "Washi" tape used for masking. Covers the big areas and is almost Tamiya tape quality ..but much cheaper. Search for it on amazon. Paints are Humbrol enamels suitably 'faded'.  FWIW there are a number of bulges on the upper wing surfaces that need filing off and sanding down too for a war-time machine. Good progress today with the fuselage band and yellow ID markings sprayed on. Plenty of scope for things to go wrong yet - the gear legs come in two parts for starters and then I'm planning to do my own decals !

Fnished model is here


  1. The Mk IXc is coming along very nicely. Looking forward to see the completion.
