Revell 1/32 Supermarine Spitfire F Mk 22

By Hubert Kendziorek

In January 2017 I decided to restart old Revell's Spitfire Mk 22/24 kit, which I started around a year earlier, but gave up temporarily due to its poor fit and lack of detail - and the most important, lack of idea, how to paint it.

This time however it was most of all to be an exercise in rescribing, scratch-building and riveting (using RB tool and must say it was fun) - did this all for the very first time in such a large scale, so didn't want to spoil any better or more expensive kit.

Therefore added here some more details: upgraded wheel wells and new landing gear covers, SAC gear legs, resin wheels, formation lights, Eduard's seat belts and dashboard, CMK's resin gun sight.

This is really a vintage kit and it shows. You can find the workshop thread here.

I was hoping to get a result, which would look nice in the second row on my shelf, in Southern Rhodesian markings.

There is a build thread for this model in the forums.
