Default Re: 1/48 Seafire FR47

These both started as quick builds! If you can believe that!

But after realizing that building an FR47 from the kit would require quite a bit more than trimming and gluing, I cracked open a second and turned into a dual build to give me some nice headaches.

As to the belly lights, the ones on 178 (dark gray) are better than the ones on 180 (light gray). I drilled a hole in each 'light' to represent a bulb, back-painted them silver and then painted them with Tamiya clear red/orange/green.

I then ended up having I had a little problem with the latter and had to repaint silver over them in prep of redoing them after main paint is done, so that's why there is a color difference.

They are on pause at the moment, tucked under the modeling bench while a 1/48 Dottie Mae is being built for the Britmodeller P-47 GB. I'll post its build soon.

After that is done, the Seafires will come back out, to be accompanied by an Academy Spifire Mk XIV E that has been sitting incomplete for a few years now. It'll need a little straightening, but all three are just about at the same build stage.
