That looks like someone at an Aircraft Repair Depot grafted a Hurricane tail onto a Spitfire front.  ;D :lol:

But I like it a lot.  :thumbsup:

Actually, Kit, the entire thing is just parts from a Hurricane (Nose & Intakes), the rest is the actual B.35/135
"Mind that bus." "What bus?" *SPLAT!*

I like it, I'm even thinking of building something of that ilk now I'll have more Whiff modelling time.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Here is the near finished bird. It's these pics that tell me what else needs doing - painting the exhausts and gun barrels, adding swastika on the tail, crosses under the wings.

If you close your eyes and squint a bit :unsure:
Doesn't that just shout "the one before the Spitfire"?
Substitute the engine with say a Kestrel, make the fin
A bit more 'Spitfire' like and et voila......
