1/32 Revell Spitfire

Here is my Revell 1/32 scale Spitfire, with the addition of Aero Master 32-019 After the Battle Spitfires decal set pt.2.  I went with the ocean gray and dark green paint scheme, I used Testors acryl dark green and Tamiya acrylic ocean gray paints straight out of the bottle.  The build as usual with Revell was tedious do to poor fitting parts and lots of flash that has to be trimmed and sanded, and filled.

I used the stock engine with the kit and then added a lot of scratch built hoses lines and plumbing to make the engine compartment more busy and realistic looking, I used various reference sources and photos to make the engine  more realistic looking, after a tedious freehand paintjob I applied some light weathering, I then applied the aero master decals which are always so easy to apply  and they went on well with a little help from Microsol decal solution.

I have built many of these Revell Spitfires and despite fit problems and flash I always enjoy building them and then seeing the finished product, hope you like!
