On that Allison Spit.  There seems to be some sort of grill or air duct on top of the cowl even with the wing leading edge.  Is this the carburetor intake?  It's in about the correct location.

I already have a 1/48 DH.89A in the stash so I supposed I will have to ad the DH.90 too

Yes, addition of DH.90 to stash can no longer be considered optional. Its excess of loveliness has tipped the balance  ;)

BTW, interesting marking options too. I hadn't realized that the Danes had a pair of Dragonflys in military service before the war!

Random idea:  Spitfire with turbocharging rather than supercharging.

I had a go at an Allison-powered Spitfire with a rear fuselage turbocharger. Jon was less than impressed with my exhaust pipe feed ... to put it mildly  ;D

Perhaps if the turbo was placed underneath the engine and back under the leading edge. The shape I have in mind would be something like the Curtiss XP-60 (although I realize, on the Curtiss, that was just the radiators, not a turbo).

Because it is illegal to build things stock on this forum ;D
Says who?
Nobody, merely a throw away line to justify to myself the need to move stuff for no apparent reason. Sorry about that :-[

Interesting rearrangement, you’ve put your beam turrets directly above
the engine-space. Luckily they’re horizontal three-cylinder engines with
a relatively low profile.
 ;)
thanks Jon, good to know.  I really have done zero research on this ship, which in all probability is unlikely to change.

My 3d printer experiment is looking promising, let say that it may involve an Airship, but not to the extent of JCF' Flying Dreadnought concept.

I like the location of the smaller turrets. Maybe when you and Dr. Yo finish your builds you can have a virtual campaign against a common foe!

With that nice scribing, It might look good as an aircraft carrier, like the early Lexington or some of the Japanese carriers.
