Has anyone built this model? If so tell us about it - power, flying characteristics, weight etc.

 Hmm, never heard of that one, is there any way to get a look at the design?

It would make a challenging and magnificent build. I have the full size plan and it's available on Outerzone:

The full scale version in this video got me thinking about Freeman's model. It's "identical" right down to the clipped wing tips.

 Looks like a very nice design, hope to see one going together here soon. ;D

Pat Johnston has a really nice spitfire design, might want to gander at his drawings,, ( which means emailing him)

The fuselage crossections are somewhat dubious as compared to scale .

Think its the one Dave murrel ( in Aus. ) and some kiwi guy flys F2B with .
though thats not what they say .

2. Loren Nell - 1876.0
3. Adrian Hamilton - 1773.0
4. Don Robinson - 1750.1
5. Dave Wright - 1599.1

Though that might be more to do with other things , though I think its got a bit of weight .

Ive drawn up 5762 Spitfires , If you want to build a real one .


When I was 7 or 8 we wanted to build a Spitfire . Dad whipped up some Spuce Verneer , threw the shape on , and away we went .

I'll give you a hint .

Ive drawn up 5762 Spitfires

dragged the Drg. out today , as I want to use a ' plank ' wing on my current fuse ,

http://stunthanger.com/smf/index.php/topic,38847.0.html
heres some drivle on one under construction , thoughs a Merlin rather than a Griffon version , though only the nose
is a bit differant , and the fin . And I threw the tailplane drg. out . unless Ive got it reduced for the .46 one . Which
I likely tossed too .  n~

Think D. W . mightve said his was 110 % .

Got my Griffon fuse done for the Elip. Wing .

Spitfires on the Brain . Just found these , rare to see a MkV ( MERLIN ) with American Markings , in Silver , with a Red Spinner . S?P


" A Spitfire V (serial number AR 404) of the 7th Photographic Reconnaissance Group at Mount Farm "

" Eagle Squadron Spitfire MK Vb Mount Farm 1944"


Will Flog the Rest of the Pictures , as its rare to se a U.S. invasion striped one also , though not as rare as above .











cant whine about the canopy detailing , with this here . The Photo Recosanance planes didnt have bullet proof windshields , or armament . Generally .

thats a Mk 11 , with a Small Carb Intake set up .

theres the link . if you click on a picture & when you get the photo , click return to photostream ' , you get a pile of mad scotsman at a rock n roll concert ,  but theres a few Spits in There ! .



The Varied hues & shades of blue in this one'd take some art to emulate . Mk 11 is sort of a hot rodded Mk 8 , two stage supercharged Merlin , longer nose than a MkV , between the exhausts & firewall .



Variations on rudders and carb intakes , A Mk 10 was similar , but presurised ,- no sliding canopy . they didnt make a dozen Mk 10s . But Many Mk 11s .

Pat Johnston does indeed have a VERY ,very good design for the Spitfire. Yes I know that I did use caps. This one is 626 square inches with a very
good airfoil,dihedral, light under 60 ounces,and flies very, very ,very well. Also has a Rabe Rudder which works very well. This is hands down the
best flying airplane I have ever had. Mine uses RO JETT 67 RE . The Mark Freeman Spitfire looks awesome. Wish he still had it so we can see it.

Lots of neat Spitfire photos and models here!  This is my Spit stunter.  60" span and RO-Jett 61.  I drew up my own plans based on 3-views and photos.  Supposed to be a stunter, so not very much scale detail.  (I've just got to change those exhaust stacks...too small.  It's too late to add a pilot).
