This is my first completed model for 2012 . Its the new tool 1/72 Airfix Spitfire Ia with the 3D Kits conversion parts to convert it to a IIa . Just to add a little extra interest , I cut open the cockpit door , cut the sliding section out of the hood & replaced it with a Falcon vacform piece . Paint is Humbrol , WEM & Xtracrylix . Decals are mainly from 3D Kits , with stencils from the kit sheet .
This was my first attempt at highlighting panel lines & for this I used Flory Models dark weathering wash , which worked pretty well .

3D kits release nice things

For the Airfix kits, if I hadn't already a Mk.II I think I would try one of these sets

Nice work on this one John, indeed an open canopy looks so much more interesting and this little Airfix kit doesn't have to be afraid to show some cockpit interior

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.
