Dick-- Maybe I missed it but what paint scheme are you going to do?

Below are some pics of my respray of the Kyosho Arium Spitfire (25" span) from Hobby lobby. It it the only other Spitfire that is in the same league as the CMPro Spit for scale good looks. Neither is perfect but they are both damn good.

The last two photos are from a site www.supermarineaircraft.com . I don't know how much it costs to build one but they do look pretty. Some of them have an oddly bulbous sliding canopy while others don't. There's a couple of video links in the site and one of them is a low and fast pass that sounds awesome, very much like a real Merlin sounds.
