Tamiya's 1/32 scale
Spitfire Mk.IXc

by Christos Papadopoulos

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IXc


Tamiya's 1/32 Spitfire IXc is available online from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

Here is my Tamiya 1/32 scale Spitfire Mk.IXc.

I tried to represent an aircraft that was in action during the dark period of the civil war, with s/n EN 143 from 335 Sqn .

 

 

Ta,iya's kit is just amazing. They were scratch builds in the following points: marking, gun bay, machine guns, engine, cockpit , safe boarding and head rest.

 

 

The camouflage had been painted with the excellent colors of Lifecolor with the following codes: Dark Green UA 091,Ocean Grey UA 093, Medium Sea Grey UA 094.The inside had been painted with the H-319 interior green of Gunze and the spinner with LC 01 White of Lifecolor, the light blue had been mixed with No 89 and No 109 of Humbrol.

In the end the aircraft sprayed with Winsor & Newton acrylic matte varnish from their Galleria series.
