Hasegawa 1/32 scale
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I

by Tolga Ulgur

Supermarine Spitfire Mk.I


Description

 

This is 1/32 Spitfire Mk.1a with the markings of “FZ-L K9906” No 65 Squadron, RAF Hornchurch, April 1939.
Firstly I have to thank to Mr Alistair McLean from Aerocraft models for the critical help on unarmored early style windscreen. He has produced customized clear resin windscreen for this project.

 

 

I have used a lot of after market goodies in this project.

 

 

Raised fuselage panel lines changed to engraved by rescribing.

 

 

I have used Barracudacast cockpit improvement set, Yahu instrument panel and Quickboost seat for cockpit enhancement. Armor plate on the headrest is deleted due to its service period.

 

 

Late style oil cooler deleted and EagleParts corrected Mk.1 oil cooler installed.

 

 

Horizontal tails are from Master Details.

I have used as usual Archer Fine Transfer resin fasteners on the engine cowling.

 

 

Other enhancements are as follows:

  • Quickboost exhaust set

  • Quickboost Spinner and propeller set

  • Barracudacast wheels

  • Barracudacast cockpit door

  • Scale Aircraft conversion landing legs

  • Unarmored windscreen from Aerocraft Models

  • Scratch built early type pitot tube

Paints are Gunze Sangyo acrylics and Alclad metalizers.
