A Spitfire Mk.1a With Stripes

I am currently in the process of building a 1/72 Airfix Spitfire Mk.1a in a What If GB on another forum and thought id post it on other forums too.
So here is the progress.
Not too exciting but here is a pic of the Spit in primer:

Looking at the model I decided that there was a little sanding and scribing to do, I did all the scribing by hand and this is my first attempt.
So here she is after sanding and re-scribing:

Then it was time for top half primer.
I have decided to use black primer on the top were the orange will be and a lighter primer on the bottom.
So here she is fresh out of the paint shop:

Stay tuned for more soon!

Re: A Spitfire Mk.1a With Stripes

More progress on the Tiger Meet Spitfire has been made this morning.
The orange has been painted, air intakes, gear and other gubbins added.
Heres a pic:

More progress is planned for tonight and tomorrow as I aim to get this finished before the 3rd, please excuse the pic as the orange looks lighter than it is in person.
C&c welcome.

Re: A Spitfire Mk.1a With Stripes

Ok so this is the part of the build I was most worried about......THE STRIPES!
So after an hour of hand painting after a stressfull day at work here is the result:

Please remember that this is the first time I have ever painted a tiger livery.
C&c welcome as always.

Re: A Spitfire Mk.1a With Stripes

Thanks Qupax .
I managed abit more work this morning, added a layer of Klear, got most of the decals on followed by another layer of Klear.
More decals will be added tonight when I finish work, think its gonna be a late night finishing this one before the deadline.

So close and yet so far all thanks to working everyday.

Re: A Spitfire Mk.1a With Stripes

Holy hell, that is beautiful!

I have always loved the Tiger Meet colors, especially on the F-15.

She's a good looking bird. Great job on that.
