Tamiya 1/32 Spitfire Mk. IXe, White 14, First Fighter Squadron IAF

By Nico Brademann

I'd like to show my recently finished Tamiya Spitfire Mk. IXe in the colors of 101 Squadron, Israel Defense Forces, 1949.

I used some Quickboost and Barracuda aftermarket sets and the 101 Squadron badge is from a Techmod sheet. I had some serious trouble with the Techmod decals (Star of David, tactical no.) had to remove them and had to paint the markings using masks made from Tamiya tape. I used Gunze Mr. Color paints.

After building lots of Luftwaffe subjects, it was a good change to build an Israeli plane and the Tamiya Spitfire builds great!
