Description

 

This is my 1/32 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk.Va with the markings of Douglas Bader’s W3185 flown by him in August 1941 in Tangmere.

I have used Hasegawa’s Mk.II No.41 kit. This is re-tooled Hasegawa Mk.V with new wings parts, from years ago. So it is based on old Hasegawa's Mk.Vb with raised panel lines fuselage, cockpit, landing gear etc.

 

 

The retooled wings are very nice and have recessed panel lines with shell ejector ports.

 

 

First of all, I rescribedthe raised panels lines of the fuselage halves.

Construction started in the cockpit as usual. I decided to modify cockpit by using:

  • Barracuda cockpit upgrade set

  • Barracuda seat

  • Eduard instrument panel

  • MDC seat belts

Fuselage parts went together nicely.  After few sanding process of the fuselage I have used “Archer Fine Transfer resin fastener set” for the fastener on the cowling.

 

 

Horizontal stabilizators replaced by “Master details” Spitfire Mk.II Horizontal tail surfaces.

Painting was done by Gunze Sangyo acrylics. Upper surfaces painted to RAF Dark Green/ Dark Earth and under surfaces to RAF Sky duck egg green. I have used a combination of Life like and EagleCals decal sets.

Other modifications are:

  • Quickboost exhaust

  • Barracudacast wheels

  • Quickboost spinner and propeller set

  • Scale Aircraft Conversi?n white metal landing gear set

  • Barracudacast cockpit door

After some weathering I have applied matt coat from Gunze Sangyo.
