Maybe the muse still lives?

I was really worried that Captain Britain had caused my muse to leave town. After ripping his face off twice and worrying over his legs for far too long, I finally decided to add a bit of extra to the shoulders and everything fell into place. Here is Captain Britain, ready to be painted:

Click the Pic!

As you can see, he is just as small as all the others and will fit in fine. He has been on the painting table since yesterday and thanks to a bit of a sleepless night, he is finished except for the base...but I'll post the pics when that is finished (I have to let the glue dry before I paint it will be tomorrow). Can you imagine how hard it was to paint the union jacks on his wrists? VERY!

On to other things and today, I bought a model kit of a Spitfire Mk9. It will be interesting to see what happens when I start to chop it up and move stuff about. I am curious to see how much I can change it without it losing it's classic lines...

The mind boggles!

See you over the barricades!

Liking it very much.

And the spitfire, it is already quite smooth. Maybe shorten the wings a bit and turn them a bit back in the shape of a v when you look upon it fromthe top.

He looks great! Really looking forward to seeing him painted up.

My fav Spit was the Mk V personally. My grandfather had an awesome story back in WW2 when he was in the RAF as an armourer of being taken up in one actually sitting on the pilot's lap!
