1:48 Spitfire Mk.II by Gary Boggs

After a Spring and Summer hiatus, we're back with some new posts!

We'll get things rolling for September with the aging 1:48 scale Revell Spitfire Mk.II by Gary Boggs. Gary reports that the kit was rough around the edges with numerous fit issues and canopy challenges, but with patience, blood, sweat, and tears (and might I say talent!) he was able to pull off another stunner... although with wings instead of tracks this time!

Gary built the model box stock and painted it with Tamiya acrylics. Finishing and weathering were achieved using MIG Dark Wash and a small amount of MIG Smoke Pigments. The aerial was created using nylon sewing thread.

Stay tuned for a few more from Gary over the coming weeks... and maybe even one from the site author! :)
