Hello, its been years since I've submitted a work here on ARC Gallery. This is one of my latest contribution, Eduard's own Spitfire Mk.IX in 1/144 scale. I actually built this kit sometime last year out of the box; later painted w/ Gunze acryllics and some minimal weathering with Tamiya Panel Line Accent colors and pastels.

I often try to enter the Nationals Competitions by our club (IPMS Philippines). However due to a rather busy professional and personal life, my supposed entry for this year's 1/144 aircraft category did not finish and as a substitute I entered this particular kit. Some dusting and a bit of buffing, and voila! She somehow managed to get 1st Place in her a category. Not bad I guess for a last minute replacement. 

Happy modeling everyone!
