Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire and Refueller Completed
Posted by FuzzDad on Monday, November 4, 2019 9:28 PM

About 10 months ago I started up model making in earnest. As a kid (50 years ago) I made a ton of models...but straight up brush painted and all testors. I had zero idea about airbrushing and all the stuff you guys in here use. So I splurged on a ton of stuff and started in. After watching countless videos and how-to builds I decided on the Tamiya Spitfire...lots of vids out there and helpful things...so here's a compilation shot from my build log.

Very well rendered. A Spit was my first "serious" model too.

Very nice - the refueler looks great and adds great scale to your nicely done spit.

Thanks,

John
