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

The third installment of Daniel Iscold’s Spitfires is this Mk. Vb in my personal favorite scheme for a Spitfire, the desert camouflage! Great stuff Daniel, and thanks for sharing your hard work with us this week!

I really don’t know the story behind this airplane. I choose these paint marks because of this beautiful red tone of the spinner. I also love the faded color of airplanes that operated in the desert. This kit was made from Tamiya kit, built out of  the box, the only addition being PE seatbelts from Eduard. These models from Tamiya build like Legos. I really enjoyed building this one.
