Supermarine Spitfire Mk I
For some time now, I've been wanting to try my hand at designing a propeller plane instead of a jet. After seeing Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk, I knew it had to be the Spitfire, and I've done my best to model it after those seen in the film. Designing this plane presented a surprising number of challenges: There is a limited availability of parts in dark tan, dark green, and dark blue, so a few compromises in part choice had to be made. If you've seen Dunkirk, you may know that the Spitfires have a split black and white color scheme on the underside. To scale the model at 1/36, the wingspan needed to be an odd number of studs. These parameters resulted in the use of a few SNOT techniques to make sure the colors underneath split right down the middle. Due to the smaller scale, I felt I needed to choose between looks and functionality. In the end I went with looks! There are no moving control surfaces as are typical on my other models. I highly value your feedback, so let me know what you think of it in the comments below. As always, thanks for looking!

Excellent! The way you made the colors split on the underside must have been hard to do.

Very nice. I like the texture of the colours on the top side. And I appreciate that you did not have to put stickers on it but build the details with plates/tiles.
