Here is my Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire Mk. IX, which took me about a year and a half to build. It really shouldn't have taken me that long, but a lot happened in my life during that time, including meeting and marrying my wife, moving, and breaking both my arms!

I added the following aftermarket items:

BarracudaCast seat
BarracudaCast cockpit door
BarracudaCast cockpit upgrade set
MasterCasters wheels
Quickboost exhausts

The markings were painted using Montex masks and represent the plane flown by Wing Commander Edward Francis John "Jack" Charles, RCAF, OC Tangmere Wing, 1944. The stencils are decals from BarracudaCals.

Some in-progress photos of the cockpit can be seen here:

Special thanks to my dad for buying me the kit for Christmas in 2009 and to my wife, Kirsten, for helping me with the photographs.

As always, questions, comments, or critiques are most welcome!

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
