How did you handle the NMF finish?

everything is brush painted, i applied 2 layers of Revell 60 (aluminum) topped of with a coat of Gloss varnish (Revell 1)

You forgot to add brush painted very well!  You have a very nice brushed aluminum texture thanks to the brush painting; ME LIKEY  8) 

Only suggestion would be to add some color/tonal variations to the fabric surfaces to make them look like they were painted silver to match the bare metal.  Providing Spits had fabric covered control surfaces...they did didn't they?

Morgan/Shacklady book would say no for a Mk.21/22/24

Great job on both the plane and the backstory,too !!! I do agree that some exhaust staining,etc. would be a good touch.

BTW, I hate you !!!   I had to order TWO Spitfire kits because of you and how nice yours is !!!!!!!
