A1_Phoenix's "early Hurricane" reminded me that I'd done a back-dated Spitfire.

Cheers A1'. Strictly done for fun ... your ur-Hurricane is far more plausible.

I have a Seafire 47 already earmarked as a post war racer...


Well if your going to use a late Mark Spitfire as a speed machine, why not go the whole hog?
Excuse the rough cutting and pasting, photshop etc aren't my strong point:

Speed Spiteful:

This is one I built long before I realized I could buy a vacuform or resin kit of a Spiteful, this is actually of the first prototype

Indeed. It may be just the thing to do from the Falcon vac kit.  :icon_meditation:

Indeed you could, but why bother when Trumpeter make an injection molded one?
all you then need is the Falcon vacform canopies for Spitfire set (which includes the speed Spitfire canopy)
and Robert is indeed your fathers brother :)

Perhaps because I already own the Falcon kit, and have no intention of purchasing the Trumpeter?
