Tamiya´s 1/32 Spitfire Mk IXc Merlin 60 series engine (part 1)

One of my ongoing projects. Tamiya´s 1/32 Spitfire Mk IXc. I want to build it with the Merlin engine quite detailed. This is the first stage of the detailing. I have added some details of the surface elements as well as the couplings for the pipes and wires that will be attached after the painting.

  5. Hola Diego, un gusto ver tus trabajos, siempre escuche hablar de ellos y la verdad nunca preste atención, porque básicamente me dedico a los civiles, ahora comencé un curso de aviones para trasladar conocimientos y la verdad da gusto ver lo que armas, abrazos y felicitaciones, @ScalaSpada
