Supermarine Spitfire modeling - Work in Progress

One day an idea came to my mind and it’s now being realized through that beautiful airplane model. It reminded me as I was a kid I got my first plastic models. They were poor quality but  it was a great fun to join all parts into one shape. Recently I decided to switch from low scale 3D models to large ones. It’s a relative impression, because in virtual 3D space all objects can have the same size, no matter how they’re big in real world. However the perception still imposes the connotation that small is small…

One big problem I’ve encountered is a lack of truly accurate plans/blueprints on the internet, weird.  So 50% of detail I obtain through some reference photos. It takes  more time to get that proper look but… that’s the current chalenge.
