Here are some pictures of my finished 1/72nd scale Mk.IXc in Johnny Johnson's markings. I built it OOB with the kit decals, and some Superscale upper wing roundels applied on top of the kit roundels, which had a curious, dark ring around them. The model was painted with Tamiya's new RAF acrylic colors, sprayed freehand with my Paasche 'H' airbrush. The finish coat is a mix of Testors clear and flat lacquers, my favorite finish. Panel line washes are oil paint thinned with lighter fluid, for faster drying.

This is a good kit, and naturally I have another on the "To Build" shelf.

All comments solicited and appreciated!

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature Airfix, Frog and Matchbox kits.

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  2. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  3. Any markings are acceptable.

  4. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
