Welcome to the forum. Promising build - nice to see that you add some more details to the Tamiya kit. I can see that you have used green stuff on quite many joins, is this because of the kit? I thought it was supposed to "fall together"... Smiley

Hello,
really the model needs much putty, since he presents many imperfections.
But with calm we arrive there.

Hello Damiaes:

You´re making a good work on this Spitfire,the seat belts are great and the reinforcement ribs over the wheel wells and brake lines in the legs are a good detail.I like the cockpit interior too.Will you leave the cockpit hood open?
Keep on with the good work,best regards:

Hi Damiaes,
 You are making good progress there, and I like your cockpit detailing.

 One minor point; Spitfires supplied to Portugal were retrofitted with the High Frequency (HF) TR 9 radio transmitters. This meant that the aerial masts were fitted with the triangular "prong" at the back of the mast with an aerial wire running from the fuselage to a small mast at the top of the fin http://www.spitfiresite.com/reference/variants-technology/2008/06/spitfire-masts-and-aerials.htmSmiley  If you have a Tamiya Spitfire Mk I you should be able to use the mast from that, or you can make your own "prong" from a small triangle of thin plasticard and add the mast at the top of the rudder.

It will be good to see a Portugese Spitfire. Smiley Smiley
