Matt. It's perfect. Great idea. Perfekt work.

But the tail wing is missing. You should finish it. The silhouette is not complete. Wind rotation will improve. The Dexterity of the Spitfire was notorious, it was also wanted by pilots from mainland Europe when the general asked them what would help them conquer England. "Give us Spitfires."

Thanks Jaroslav. 👍 The customer wants it without a tail, so it will have to stay as is.

Regards from a very wet Cornwall! ☔️

A very beautiful, well-crafted piece of work there Matt. Both the customer and you should be equally ecstatic! Intrigued with your pyropneumo-form method of shaping the fuselage. Quite a clever bloke all round...
