    Hi all
    Another "project" which took too much time is finally over.
    Hobby Boss's Spitfires 5 easy kit (not so easy in this project), converted to version VI High altitude fighter.
    Some of changes on basic model, shortening wings, added resin extensions for HF version, added intake on the right side of the engine, cut off the strange "growths" on the lower part of the wings (landing lights ?), completely made cockpit interior, replaced canopy (the original is sick over sized), replaced wheels and added covers (model doesn’t have them at all), replacing three blade rotor with for blade one…..... etc ....
    Paints, Humbrol, weathering artistic oil paintings, lacquer Gunze.
    Will stop with bothering now, so pictures next.
    As always all critics and advices welcomed. I hope you like the model
    Regards Djordje

    Gorgeous. Beautiful weathering. It's hard to believe it's only in 1/72 scale! The shape of the wings are interesting.
