    Well I finally got round to finishing it after a bit of a break from a lack of enthusiasm. Now she's done I better crack on with my 1/72 Fujimi Tomcat that's been unfished for over a year.:oops:

    Nicely done. I like the 'Aluminium' painted finish - looks just right, many modellers make it look too much like bare metal.

    Thanks for the kind comments, it was a fun build once I got the motivation to get on with it. With regards to the aluminium finish I was under the impression that they weren't natural finish but painted silver is that correct?

    Yep, that's what I meant - they were painted in 'Aluminium', basically a silver 'paint'.

    Great looking Spitfire, silver finish is never easy, but you got it very convincing.
