Man, I really respect the old school scale planes. I use to go to rough river every year. There were some real pros and some local do it yourselfers there....Thats what was cool about it. The scale contests of today seem to reward the planes w/ little to no intricate detail. It's easier to scale down. Some of the proportions may have been a little off on those scratch built planes I remember, but they need to find a way to quantify in points the builders touch, or imagination/ ingenuity. The planes you mentioned just brought back the old days for me.....I respect your choices.....

since i need the family's support , and finances, we settled on the Ziroli p-61.. it is actually about the same finished price as the Spitfire.
