While waiting for the masks to paint national insignia to P-51D, I have just started to work on my next project: Eduard’s Spitfire Mk.IIA. Here are the first WIP shots. Some PE parts and copper wires were added to the cockpit to make it look more detailed & “busy”. Ready for priming and painting now.
