Black Spitfire

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

a few months ago I scored some 3mm black Correx off-cuts from a local packaging company. I had other "black" PSS intentions, but when my Camo Corrospit became a bit too abused from the Hermanus trip, I decided to build another Spitty

the wing at 3mm was only about a half ounce heavier than the Camo Spit's 2mm wing. I extended the nose about 20mm longer than my original (same as the plans on page 1) and was able to remove almost 150 grams from the original spinner. The Black Spitfire auw is 1100 grams
