  • That poses a new question,,, im sure the higher kv , spit motor will bolt up etc.. to the corsar likely the eighty amp esc will need upgrading,, bigger prop ??? (dont have amp checking equipment) looks like shaft etc will fit.... anybody done it?? Should have asked on f4u thread... o well


    • I was busy with some orders and CAD works in last days, well I did not work on Spitfire very much. Bottom side is almost done for painting and now I am going to open the cockpit.
      Today I only painted exhaust stacks. Final coat they will get when I put them back on nose.Click image for larger version

      • Very, very nice Prekin. Attention to details really brings the model to life. Rex


        • Thank you very much Rex! I hope, I will keep my motivation to the end of project!


          • I really missed the canopy rails on the fuselage. I cut the a hole for dummy rails and also did cockpit a little wider.
            Cockpit is very shallow, so there will not be many details on side panels.

              • Thank you LB!
                I got back to wings for a minute and added flap control arm doors. Those I cut from piece of aluminium tape.
                MG ports will be covered by fabric tape, but it may will be more authentic if there will be holes in leading edge.​

                • I looked at the cockpit closer. Depth of the cockpit area is 40mm. It seem, there will not be a lot of work on cockpit details. Only some braces of the fuselage and small piece of seat. But on the port side I may add radio channel switch and parts of crowbar and throttle quadrant.
