Great stuff. Love the look of this one ! Very intriguing, especially the engine layout. The wing shape looks good as well, and I love the flying shot !

610 used DW or JE codes according to this handy Wiki list :-

That Airfix BoB set must be based on Duxford, where 19 Sqdn. flew from during the Battle. It doesn't look all that much different to this day, there's just as many Spitfires there now!  ;D

Actually the squadron is QV as its always the leading two letters that lead the roundel on the port side of the aircraft. That makes it 19 squadron according to the list you provided the link to Kit.

Er, yes Alastair. I said that already, in post #41.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Chaos, confusion, misunderstanding.  My work here is done... :wacko:

The canopy is a terrible fit.  I must remember to test fit them before painting everything.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
