Oh, it breaks the heart!  :(  :(  :(  To see such noble machines come to such a poor end ... So undeserved!   :angry: :angry:

The build looks excellent! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

But the fire dump looks SO sad! :(
 

Exactly what I was going to say.

Usually I don't like realism, but these wrecks are like "the bad side of Reality", and this is comforting me... ;)

At first I'm thinking 'A BoB period Spitfire with a four bladed prop?' and then I realised that the 109 was Merlin powered.........  ;D ;) :banghead:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

I used to have the Mosley book (Not sure if I still do, or whether it was one of the irreplaceable victims of the 2001 Great Shed Flood.) & you've captured the cover perfectly!
