83in WS Spitfire Mk.IX

Since December 2014 I have the Brian Taylor´s Spitfire project on my table. Maybe you´ve already seen some of pictures I will post there. I changed almost whole construction of the fuselage and designed new formers and ribs. I hope that´s the way how to achieve low weight. For this project I make some fibreglass and resin parts, such as cowl, air scoop, cannon blister, gunsight, antenna mast, control trim horns, exhaust stacks. Here I will post all pictures with some delay.

The cowl is detailed with some dummy screw heads, rivets and hatches. I try to make is scale as it is possible. It is not easy to keep the scale size. Some of the rivets are little bigger, than they should be. I like canopies with the frames. The first design of the canopy frame was very smooth without detailing. I designed another one with some detailed and designed for sliding canopy.
