Progress report – Get over it

This is what I said to myself…Pierre, get over it and build it…

I have tried my best to get over the seams by using some scraping, filing and filling with just plain white glue, then white paint using my wet finger to take the excess off.

Necessity is the mother of invention…

We’ll see what happens, but now I have started having fun again with building the Spitfire Mk Vb. The wings have been mated together without too much frustration using clothespins.

Of course I will need to take extra care with the main landing gear.

And the fragile struts…

These will be glued last before painting. I have not decided yet how I will paint the Spitfire Mk Vb since there was different color schemes of Spitfires which flew over Malta.

This one is John Plagis’ Spitfire Mk Vb.

There are also the Smith brothers’ Spitfires…

And Buzz Beurling’s Spitfire.
