I don't think I've ever seen the Temperate scheme rendered any better than on your Spitfire, Chris! I also like your subtle approach to the panel lines too.

Top-shelf (hehehe) all the way!

Wow thank you !  Um.. not sure what to say im all embarised...  ;D

For the weathering i used flory models wash for the first time :)  Came out real well once the top coat of varnish went on, until then i was convinced i'd totally messed it up... Might as well let you see the underside then :)



As you can see that was before the details went on but still...
