Hmmm...that's about 10" span...you sure you're looking for that small?

You can get a really nice 23" span kit by John Bell from Penn Valley Hobbies here. I have one myself, have thought more than once it'd make a cool build with the tiny stuff available today, or if you feel like pulling/forming the canopy, etc. it could be blown up nicely.

There are 1/24th and 1/72nd scale drawings for the Mk XIV Spitfire available from Nexus Publications, plus several plans for scale and semi scale Spitfires in various sizes and various marks - have a look here

http://www.nexusonline.com/pages/nexusdirect.cgi

You'd only have to double the scale of the 1/24th drawings so they look like they might do the job for you.

Good luck

Brian

If you blow up Bell's plan to that size I imagine you'd be a happy camper, it's pretty complex for FF rubber, and obviously all the structure's in place, so you wouldn't have to translate it from 3 views. Plus, if you get the kit, just photograph & Photoshop the markings and make some decals.

It's what I'd do, but then I'm lazy! That XIVE is awfully pretty , one of my top 5 favorite variants of the Spit.
