Thomas Bischoff (kruzikrucken)


Spitfire Vb

View images (59): | | List

I got this kit for almost nothing at an exhibition with the intention to use only the control stick for another project. But I think it is a pity to throw away this beautiful kit so I bought the Techmod decals to build it into Jan Zumbach's Spitfire.



This album is attached to project Spitfire Vb (Jan Zumbach).

Christian Bruer Well Thomas this is a nice example of high level model making. You cut out the maskings for the markings for you own or are these aftermarket masks?

Thomas Bischoff Hi Christian I used Montex masks except for the fin flash which was masked with Tamiya tape. I was really impressed how well the masks worked.

Martien Lourens Very nice Spit,Thomas. Detailed cockpit. I like the chipping on the wing.

Guido Haesevoets I did miss the start, but happy to catch up. It's turning out very nice indeed!

Thomas Bischoff I thank you all! There were a lot of great looking Spitfires built this year - they all inspired me very much for mine.

Thomas Bischoff slowly getting to the end. Somehow I find it easier to use the photos to check where a touch up is required.
Some last improvements planned for today, after that I will let it dry for a week and then add some panel wash with oil.

Guido Haesevoets she looks good Thomas! and I agree that in pictures it's sometimes easier to pick out the imperfections. ;)

Thomas Bischoff a little bit behind the planned schedule - panel highlighting with diluted burnt umber oil finished on the underside.

Guido Haesevoets What a difference it makes!

Rob van Dodewaard I am definitely in especialy since I want to build this one also(someday)
11. January 2016 at 22:10:13
Mike Grant Nice work Thomas, the underside is looking really good
12. January 2016 at 00:02:57
Clifford Keesler Looking great Thomas.
12. January 2016 at 02:23:16
Thomas Bischoff I am glad (and proud) that you like it! I have finished the panel highlighting now.
Posted some pictures for comparison - amazing how much you can blow up a single picture (should have removed the dust before)
Rob: no need to wait - this is a simple and straightforward kit, I put all the effort into the paintjob :)

Thomas Bischoff Finally finished! As last thing I added the prolonged rear view mirror which is well documented on Zumbachs Spitfire.
My favourite is the orange coloured belly light - amazing what you can find and learn on the internet.

Choppa Nutta Nice work Thomas

MRMLA Nice Spitfire!
24. January 2016 at 21:17:23
Guido Haesevoets Turned out great. Makes me wanna build mine :)

Thomas Bischoff Thank you all!
I can highly recommend this kit as it is a straightforward build. It can no longer compete in detail with the latest Eduard releases, especially in the cockpit area but finished it looks 100% Spitfire to me.
By the way: I have not used up the Techmod Decalsheet leaving at least one complete set of markings for a Zumbach Spitfire plus a set for JH*M of 317th Squadron. Only missing items are the stencils. Anyone interested can contact me.
