Good Ol' Spit

n Janne Nilsson

This is an old Airfix Spitfire Mk VB kit in 1/48th scale. The kit was built out of the box, hassle-free, with no add-ons whatsoever, to illustrate articles on model building techniques for beginners. The model is also brush-painted. Airfield surface is made of Celluclay and Static Grass. My idea was to show a plane on an airfield somewhere in England, just refuelled and reloaded.

Detta är inget annat än Airfix gamla Spitfire Mk VB i 1/48. Planet byggdes för att illustrera artiklar i Allt om Hobby nr 1,2 och 7/97. Den byggdes direkt ur lådan och är penselmålad. Basplattan är gjord av Celluclay och Static Grass. Tanken var att skildra en pilot från Slaget om Storbritannien som var på väg upp igen för att möta den lede fi efter att ha tankat och fyllt på ammunition.
