This is 1/32 Revell Spitfire Mk.IIa finished with the markings of P8088
NK-K “The Borough of Lambeth / Bette” flown by Lumsden of 118sq based at Ibsley Hampshire in May 1941.
Revell’s newly tooled Spitfire Mk.IIa needs a lot of corrections and modifications though it’s a new generation.
I have started from the cockpit as usual. Cockpit modified with:
Reinforcement plates existing on the upper and lower surfaces of the wings deleted.
Size of the bulges on the cowling is not accurate. Inaccurate parts are deleted and replaced by the accurate ones from my spares box.
Size of Coffman starter blister is not accurate. I have used Hasegawa’s part.
Kit still needs some more corrections or modifications which are as follows
Painting was done with Gunze Sangyo acrylics. Lower surfaces painted to RAF sky, upper surfaces to RAF Dark green and Dark earth.
Decals are from Xtradecal X32053 set.
