|Probably the most flattering shot as it makes the horrible canopy look 'OK'!|
|Classic Spitfire 'take off' shot.|
|The least flattering angle, as you can see the flaw with the canopy. I took|
the opportunity to drill out the wing MGs, which look quite nice.
As I said, this was just a painting test - a practise paint job on a cheap kit before I took on a 'serious' project - but, for all that, it's turned out OK I think. I was particularly pleased with my 'eyeshadow' weathering.
As to the kit itself, it's actually an alright beginner's 'easy build', the most obvious flaw being the over-seized canopy (which is why I painted it 'wargame model style'). Minor niggles were the over-simplified undercarriage - which were designed only to be made in the 'down' position - and the very spindly propellors.
Still, as I bout this kit for just £2.95 I can't really complain all that much can I?
