1/48 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.IX

Gallery Article by Sinang Aribowo on Aug 24 2012



Greeting from Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
This is my newly built 1/48 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.IX.  Everything was OOB except for the markings. Instead of using the kit decal I opt to painted them all. I use self made masking sticker for this job. Usually I use vinyl cut sticker but this time I use laser cut on wide masking tape for better resolution.

The colors is a mix of Tamiya acrylic paints. After all paints were applied I sprayed a coat of future then placed all the stencils. Again for the stencils, I opt to not using the kit's decals because I found the letters are too bold. So I designed the stencils on computer and printed it at a local print shop that has the finest laser printer resolution in town.

Thank You very much!
