In his newest stop motion assembly video, modeler Tom Grigat takes on the new Airfix Supermarine Spitfire FR Mk XIV kit in 1/48 scale.
Grigat notes that the cockpit painting employed a combination of humbrol and alclad II milspec colors while the pilot is painted with acrylic colors from vallejo. The entire aircraft coat is painted with alclad II chrome on a base of alclad glossy white and glossy black sealed with aqua gloss.
This time I tried the stressed skin effect in a more subtle way compared to the extreme effect I got with the B-17 G in 1/72. Hope it worked better this time…The additional rivets were made with the tool “rosie the riveter” and the gun barrels are brass tubes from albion alloys.
