Forum member Roy McKenzie (wyoroy) is one of the most intelligent, clever and handsome people you’ll ever meet. Like me, he loves Airfix Spitfires. And he did a particularly nice job on this Mk. IX, in the marking of my favorite pilot, Johnnie Johnson. Roy, you are a scholar and a gentleman! 😀 😉
This build was part of the “First D-Day Weekend Fellowship Build June 4-6 2010, Part I”. Great work!
Well it’s done! This is Airfix’s Spitfire Mk.IXc.
The markings are that of MK392 JE-J flown by Wing Commander Johnnie Johnson, OC No. 144 Wing, RAF, RAF Ford, June 1944.
It was built straight from the box with Model Master enamels. All the invasions stripes, ID band and yellow wing edge are painted. I tried an oil wash for the first time. I still need to perfect it. (I’ve been working on that one myself for a few years Roy. Let me know when you do….. :))
