Cockpit detail was nonexistent, but not like a lot will be seen anyway... added a few stringers just to keep my OCD at bay.
6. November, 13:51
Gordon Sørensen
A little paint and wash to suggest a wooden interior. Not much will be seen, so not a lot of time going into it. Will have to make a seat though, the kit only had the old plank/pilot for the interior.

Started the D.VII. There are a few ejector pins in the bare cockpit, and on the wings between the strut attachments.
The detail in the cockpit is nonexistent, so I roughed up a couple stringers and a rear bulkhead.

Made my own mask for the canopy. Usually I paint the canopy first and add after, but there was a bit of a gap between the fuselage and the forward section that needed a bit o' putty.
Started the camoflague, brush paintied with Humbrol Enamels. Have enough in the stash to last me a while. Not sure what I am going to use when they need replacement.

Bearers of 'The Hairy Stick' - ten-HUT! Looking good Gordon - acrylics are not so bad once you get practiced at using them, but if your enamel stock is anything like mine, no great worries for a while yet! :)
25. September, 06:49
Gordon Sørensen
Well....crap! The putty I used to fill the gap on the canopy has gone all the way through. Now it is visible inside the cockpit. Other than prying off the canopy I am not sure what else to do... Any suggestion?
But.... I am happy with how the paint turned out. One coat of Klear and it already looks ready for decalling.
1. November, 19:34
wilky
That's disappointing.
I have no suggestions
1. November, 20:05
Łukasz Gliński
Hm, not sure the black penetrating glue (like Mr.Cement SP) would go underneath the paint to darken the putty. Wouldn't risk to check it on a varnished kit anyway. I usually mix the putty with black pigment/paint if needed in canopy surroundings.
1. November, 21:01
Alec K
I would say go for it and pop that canopy off.
2. November, 12:02

Think you are right Alec! Good thing I attach my canopies with Humbrol Clearfix...

Started on the Harvard IIb.
Cast a couple copies of the Academy T-6G interior. Probably not 100% correct, but looks the part...
Cut off the rudder and elevators with a trusty razor-saw.
Got the fuselage closed up and horizontal stabs installed, added the wing. Starting to look like a Harvard!

Decalling Complete!
Noticed a couple other differences between pics of the real thing and the decal diagram. I think the decals are based on a museum example.
Still have the exhausts, atenna and landing lights to go...
6. July, 17:21
Gordon Sørensen
Added the ADF aerial and mounts using EZ-Line.
Finished with a Semi-Gloss which I am not sure I am happy with. Seems a little more Gloss than Semi...
17. July, 00:28

Hey Gord, it looks good, not too gloss I think....and, Tuborg or not Tuborg...that is the question

Question for all you WWII knowledgable types....
Was reading about Vickers Wellingtons tasked with "mining" various ports and bays. Tried looking on google...
What did these mines look like? How many would a Wellington carry?
8. May, 00:22
Ben M
I'd imagine they were carried internally in the bomb bay. Possible place to start researching appearance: navweaps.com/Weapons/WAMBR_Mines.php#Aircraft-launched_Mines

This'd make for a cool model too: [img1]

Scratchbuilt an interior and the wheel well details.
Airframe complete and in white primer.
Have to raid the spares box, mostly from an Airfix Mk.IX. Will use the prop and spinner, exhausts, main landing gear and wheels, and the seat and backing plate
14. April, 01:16

If you're making Clive Caldwell's Spitfire the serial number is wrong.
It's A58-484 not 464 which the decals have

Would like to do A58-303. Just need to source the decals. As back-up, I do have the Almark Mk. VIII & IX 'Victory in Sight' decal sheet.

The nose is looking very impressive Gordon. A very interesting subject, I wasn't previously aware of such a colour scheme on a Spit. :)
26. March, 16:39
Gordon Sørensen
Got the nose stripes painted. Not sure they are correct, but very little photo evidence of how they go...
Need to do some little touch-ups on the grey of the camo, then on to decalling!
2. April, 19:56
Gordon Sørensen
Only 40 more decals to go...
6. April, 17:22
Gordon Sørensen
Decaling finished. The upper roundels cracked and splintered so had to replece them with the Eagle Strike Spitfire/Hurricane Roundels (Early) I have had in my stash for years.
Just need to let the Klear dry so I can Dulcote, add the antenna wire (ez-line) and it will be complete.
7. April, 04:10

Finished! Spit #31 of the collection. 2 more on the bench, 1 on the shelf of doom, and 55 more in the stash...

251st production airframe.

Abandoned and captured by the germans in May 1940.
Only Spitfire deliverd to a foreign air force directly from Supermarine (all others were ex-RAF stock)

Hello, Its a nice build. One remarque: The blue color from the cocardes ins to blue. In 1940 the blue where a blue/grey color.

Oh, how sweet to hear one of these overhead these days, and it's even nicer to see on here on SM.

It looks so delicate and frail mate, and I too hope you can effect some repairs, as it will be a stunning little bird in the end. :)

Patience (and glue!) have the struts repaired. Rigging started, but I think I will skip the wires on the fuselage between the wing mounts. Too fiddly and not a lot of room...
17. May 2015, 17:12

Having issues getting a nice paint finish on the engine cowling. One more round of sand and paint.
Finally finished the flying wire rigging. Now just have to see about the control surface wires at the back....
