RRD4831 ‘Spitfire Vc, 85 Sqn RAAF, LateWar’. They performed perfectly right on top of the Alclad finish. com 53 ABOVE: Decals were from Red Roo Models too, item no. RRD4831 ‘Spitfire Vc, 85 Sqn RAAF, Late-War’. They performed perfectly right on top of the Alclad finish. RIGHT: The windscreen and canopy were masked with Tamiya tape and temporarily tacked to a paintbrush. The windscreen was painted Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black, while the middle and rear canopy sections received a coat of silver. C ONCLUSION I built both the Classic Airframes limited-run Spitfire Vc and the Tamiya/Red Roo conversion in parallel, and it proved to be a very interesting exercise.
It is designed for the Tamiya kit. In addition to the wings, Red Roo supplies a tropical filter and a replacement propeller and spinner, alternate cannon bulges, barrels and a new oil cooler intake. The casting quality of all the parts is very high. The panel lines and fine details look good compared to the Tamiya kit parts. The conversion addresses most of the differences between the ‘b’ and the ‘c’ wing, but there are still a few accuracy issues that need to be addressed. Firstly, and most noticeably, the inner machine gun on the ‘c’ wing moved one rib further out, so instead of lining up with the inner end of the aileron, the access door should be outboard of that panel line.
It was stripped back to bare metal. Alclad II Aluminium was used as the base colour. This is a lacquer-based finish with tiny metallic particles, resulting in a very convincing finish. The rudder on this aircraft was painted foliage green. This was sprayed and the area forward of the empennage masked off in preparation for the white identification markings on the horizontal tail surfaces and the fin. If you are planning a regular metallic finish, a coat or two of grey primer will be sufficient.
