Have you thought about the Airscale IP? I’m collecting bits together for my Spitfire and I can’t make my mind up on them.
Thanks Steve and Boots, I had seen these, but unfortunately too late. The etched kits look damn fine, again unfortunately they only do the decals for tiff. At £11.95 +p&p the spitfire kits not a bad price, from manufacturer. I see they also do ww2 generic cockpit components, which might be handy. Some parts showing on scalemates but looking a bit rare😏, surprisingly Eduard don’t do anything. I used the typhoon cockpit kit from Eduard, again unfortunately the layout looks completely different after Googling it. Most of my inspiration for colours and details are from google images searches, with the spitfire you’re blessed with detailed piccies, just gonna have to scratch a lot of it 🤔. Depending on how much of a challenge you fancy fella 😜
Cheers fella. References are easier found for the Spit but there are so many restored airframes out there with incorrect details that it’s easy to get it wrong!
Agreed, but my philosophy is, ‘it’s my model and I’ll build it my way’ ish......😁 Depends if you’re trying to recreate an exact copy, or like my tiff, it’s going to be set in a dio of a crashed typhoon. Yes it’ll have markings on it from a specific machine, but that’s not my goal, just a typhoon diorama sourced from several wartime piccies. Best of luck fella 😜
Ok more engine bits and pieces. I replaced the ignition harness on front of engine with 2mm braided Tamiya hose and strips of Tamiya tape wrapped round as I couldn’t see how the kit part was truly representative of real parts. Blooming fiddly, but I’m happy with result.
Still more to add..........😀
Then I have to decide if or how much damage the oil cooler/ air intake scoop will have? And how? 🤔
