Here is Academy's 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk.XIVE. I built this model
around five years ago. The model represents a Spitfire attached to
451 Squadron RAAF on occupation duties in Germany during 1945.
Academy's kit, as supplied, has some obvious shape and detail
Many of these issues are addressed with Daco's resin correction
set. This set features a complete replacement nose, spinner,
propeller blades, radiator housings, wheel hubs, exhausts, rudder,
seat, cannon bulges and cannon barrels. White metal replacements for
main gear legs and the tailwheel are also included.
The model was painted with the Testor Aztek A470 airbrush. I also
used Testor's Metalizer Sealer as a gloss coat before applying the
Red Roo decals.
