Hey Smiley

I used Model Color from Vallejo, it's acrylic vinyl paint, you can get it online at ebay if your LHS doesn't stock it. I water mine down by 30%, then spray it on.
Olive and Golden Brown for the camo, Pale Grey Blue for the underneath.

Cheers Jack, I must admit, there's something special about seeing a Spitfire in the air. I need to trim her out a little more as she's a bit twitchy still, other than that she's a keeper.

Funny how a plane can capture the image in your mind as the perfect plane. The sound shape and all.

Everybody loves the Spitfire.

Hey thanks guys, although I admit to having a little accidental meeting of the ground with my Spitfire. I'd had a couple of beers at a friends house one afternoon and then decided as it was such a wonderfully calm evening it would be a good idea to go have a little fly. Beers adds lots of confidence and very little judgement and ability...lol
Anyway, I'm rebuilding the front end, it's not so bad as the rest of the plane is ok, I really like the way EEP bounces.
All the best from Spain, I hope Brazil is treating you both well.
