Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but this is my first bash at making What If's. I saw the pictures from a recent show on here and decided to give it a try.

I built the Revell 1/72 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb. Having seen plenty of Battle of Britain Spitfires of late, I thought I would do something a little different.

All comments welcome.

Thanks for looking.

Oh God! Is one of the most nice and agresive scheme in the Spit's skin I ever seen. I love it :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

That just might be 56 Sqdn. markings then?  ;D

Do tell us how you did the natural metal finish please, it's very nicely done.
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Welcome! That looks magnificent - outstanding metal finish :thumbsup:!


Very pretty, unusual finish on a Spit. :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.


Thats one of the best natural metal finishes I've seen.  Great intro!  Lovely!  :thumbsup:
