Supermarine Swift FR.5

I have started this build to contribute to a magazine so I will not post photos for now.

The model is very nice detailed but I'm improving some areas anyway.

The model is almost ready to be painted. Need to apply a coat of Surfacer 1200, complete some panel lines and rivets and start to paint the PRU blue.....

Hey guys the model is almost finished. Decals were applied and now I need to airbrush a gloss varnish coat to protect them and apply washes all around the model. I will show something in a few days. Cheers.

Thanks guys ! Roy, the model is a great one, easy to build and nice detailed. Decals are also great ! Be careful about the color references given by airfix, they are, in my opinion, too dark. So if you use the humbrol paints try to add some 'white' in the mix before painting. Cheers.
