Hi to all,

I have now commenced putting this together and as you can see will need some filler. Can anyone advise best/easiest to get please.

Can I also congratulate you all on the RAF 100 builds so far they all look fantastic and put my little effort to shame. Some real skills being shown that hopefully I will gradually gain as time goes on.

Thanks for looking, Nick T.

My go-to filler is Perfect Plastic Putty **LINK** Not the cheapest - but the best I have found to date!

Hi Nick,

Don’t put yourself down, we all had to start somewhere and your build looks fine in my eyes too.thumbs up

I tend to use Vallejo plastic putty for small seams and holes and Mr. Hobby for the larger fillings, it just a matter of one’s preference.

Oh and for attaching canopy’s the best glue IMHO is PVA, it doesn’t fog up the clear parts and any glue stains are not easily seen.wink 2

Looking forward to see your progress on this interesting variant of the Spitfire.

Don't think I've said hello before, so welcome to MilMod.

A nice start and as the lads have said, don't talk yourself down, just enjoy what your doingthumbs up. Good to see an unusual variant as well.

Just to let you know as well I've moved the thread from General Modelling to Group Builds and edited the title to include the GB search term (RAF100GB). That way the thread will get picked up in GB searches far more easily. Don't worry about twin postings either. It often happens dependant on machine connection speed or mouse sensitivity; my record is six identical posts! I've deleted the other thread for you.

Anyway, looking forward to seeing this develop.face 23

Hi All,

I am not as fast as some due to limited time at the bench and slowly getting various bits and pieces needed but here is a quick update. the main parts are now together and first attempt at filling and sanding then a quick coat of yellow under and grey upper. this revealed I need to revisit the filling before any more painting.

Steve - thanks for your kind comments.

John - Thanks for checking in and having now got the plastic putty have commenced again.

Fernando - Thanks too for your kind comments. The tip on canopy's and PVA is really appreciated.

Andy - Hi and thanks for the welcome. I really am enjoying myself just a little frustrated with my own ability and lack of knowledge at the moment. i have slowed my mouse click settings so hopefully no more double posts. Time will tell. Many thanks for sorting everything else out for me.

Anyway here is the latest picture.spitfire floatplane.jpg

Hi All,

I have now finished the little spitfire seaplane for the RAF 100 build and hope it meets with approval. I know the standard is no where near as good as the work you guys produce but again I've learnt more and enjoyed doing it.

Here's the final pictures.

Thanks for looking,
