    Finally.
    Some pics of the finished model.



    The Blue grey over paint is intended to look shabby as it was hurriedly applied by brush.



    The scratch built Voltage Regulator behind the pilot's head.



    Exhaust manifold and heater tubing.



    Note the stone guard in front of the Vokes Filter, and the fuel spilage stain.



    I hope you like it.

    Prosit Cyril, excellent job, I think that you really managed to capture the feel of that spit and the condition those poor planes used to be in. Brilliant work, I also love the way you followed the photo for weathering detail and camo pattern and colour, i think it is very accurate, based on the normal assumptions. Sublime job, very well done, the first true model of a Malta spit. I love it.

    Thank you Brian for your kind words.
    I really enjoyed building this model, thanks to the vast information in your book and the photos supplied by Frederick Galea.
    When I look at it, I feel as if I am looking at an aircraft that has been left to the elements for a long while.

    Thank you to all for your kind words. Very Happy

    Marco, the decals are from MDC, while the squadron markings are normal decals painted over, as I could not find any in yellow.
    As regards the canopy, I would not like to part with what I have left over as I have more projects for Spitfires in 1/32 scale.

    IO will get you one if ever i manage to get myself to the club. I don;t think you need it very urgently since you are not the one to build a model per week!! but if you need it urgently i can even post it to you or we meet somewhere.

    Wow, Cyril....... Well done!

    I just love that weathering! It looks so authentic. I'm sure it must have been a daunting task to weather it.

    As Brian said .... A true first Malta Spitfire model!

    Now you put me in a difficult position because I have the recent Airfix 1/48 that I plan to do as Burling's scheme and very weathered....... I Don't know if I can match your effect!!

    Hi Noel,
    This kind of weathering goes lighter, being mostly in the sun, so all I did was lighten each colour used even aluminium, which to some might seem overdone, but I just followed the black and white photo.
    I am sure you will get there.
