1/32 Revell (Hasegawa) Spitfire Mk 1A K9962

Here is my 1/32 Revell-Hasegawa Spitfire Mk 1a finished with the markings of Farquhar's Mk 1a K9962.

In fact this is re–issue of old Hasegawa’s hybrid release (ST14 in 2001) with Revell brand years ago. In this kit, Hasegawa produced new wings parts. The wings have been scribed with the correct panel lines and shell ejector ports. The fuselage, cockpit, landing gear and minor parts are all lifted directly from the vintage plastic of the Mk Vb. The problem is the mismatching surface detail - engraved on the wings and raised elsewhere. And also note that oil cooler needs to be backdated.

So first step in build process is removing surface detail mismatching by scribing fuselage panel lines.

Second step is modifying cockpit area. For this upgrading I have used the following goodies:

I have used “Archer fine transfer” fasteners set for detailing engine cowling.

Other modifications are:

Painting was done with Gunze Sangyo and Tamiya acrylics. Upper Surfaces painted to RAF Dark green and RAF Dark earth with Gunze paints. Lower surfaces painted with Tamiya paints.

I have used Fündekals decal set.
