1/32 Revell Supermarine Spitfire Mk. 22/24

Gallery Article by Victor De Jesus on Oct 20 2011


With the exception of the “Master” Spano gun set for this model, this was an OOB build. I used MM’s paints for the camo scheme which included RAF Dark Green, Ocean Gray, and Medium Sea Gray. I pre shaded the model with black paint, and I slightly post shaded it using the Pro Modeler black wash. The decals included in this kit were pretty good, and I was able to make them conform to the panel lines using Micro Sol solution. I placed a few extra brass cables in the engine compartment, the landing gear and inside the cockpit to add some detail. Revell did an exceptional job with this kit with the exception of the lack of recessed panel rivets. I added some of my own, but I tried not to over do it. Adding the brass Master Spano barrels to the wings proved to be a challenge as they were somewhat a bit oversized for this kit.

The kit represented in this build is from the Royal Air Force Kai Tak, No. 80 Squadron, Hong Kong , 1951.  

I enjoyed building this kit and I really like the final product. I hope that you enjoy the photos included. I do need to get a better digital camera to better capture the finer details.
