As I showed in the last video, in addition to some tools I also picked up Eduard’s new boxing of the Spitfire Mk.IX c in 1/72 scale.
In short a very nice looking kit with some extra goodies. Video below.
Now that I have a bit more disposable income, I am finally picking up some tools I’ve been wanting to try out.
These were purchased from www.emodels.co.uk a great retailer in the UK. One of the reasons I chose them was that they had almost everything I needed right now, the pricing is great and shipping is actually cheaper to Canada from the UK then it is from the US right now.
I’ve posted a YouTube video showing my haul.
I mention in the video about watching a video about using curved blades to aid in cutting away masking when doing canopies. It was from Paul Budzik’s channel on Modelling outside the Box. Paul’s website is a great resource.
The first step is the cockpit area. Attached the cannon muzzle assembled to the front fuselage. I don’t really know why they would not have molded this all in one piece.
