Readers’ Gallery: Daniel Iscold’s Spitfires, Pt. I: Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk. I

This week, we’ll be featuring Spitfires from Agape forum member Daniel Iscold. We’ll start off with a Tamiya Mk. I in pre-war markings. Thanks Daniel!

This is the first of the firsts!  19 Squadron became famous as the first to operate the new Spitfire Mk. I. This one was made using the Tamiya Mk. I, but I took a spare propeller from the  Airfix Mk. I. I brought this Airfix kit from Hannats, and the kit also came with the wing of Mk V kit. Yay!! A Grat prize for me. Luckily, I also received another spare Mk. I  Tamiya, and a complete set of vacum formed canopies for all kinds of Spitfires from Falcon.

The markings for this kit come from the Airfix decal sheet, which are great quality decals, and the roundels where painted on using home made masks.
