Supermarine Spitfire Ml.
Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Spitfire VIII is available
Here is Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Spitfire VIII built as an aircraft of 452
The model was built straight from the box using the parts for the Mk.
VIII included with the Mk. IX boxing.
RLM 70 Black Green is a good match for RAAF Dark Green, a late war
Australian colour. I used Gunze RLM 70 for this upper-surface colour. I
also mixed lighter shades and painted various panels to give the
impression of uneven fading.
Aeromaster RAF Azure Blue was applied to the undersurfaces, as this
aircraft was originally camouflaged in Desert colours.
Decals were from Ventura.
When the painting and decalling was finished I sprayed several coats of
Aeromaster Semi-Gloss Varnish because these aircraft were waxed and
polished for maximum performance.
