Cool plane. Nerd-bird scale fanatics can buy some other Spitfire(then agonize over the tire tread or pilot's skin tone or whatver...) It might not be for everybody, but then nothing is.. Respect to HK for being willing to think outside the box - then act on it.

Uhhh.... No. While the plane itself is nice, the paint scheme is 100% F4U Corsair.

There are several American paint schemes for the spitfire, some look relatively decent.

Better yet, Durafly could have opted for an Australian scheme as they DID fly Spitfires in the Pacific.

Why offer something completely wrong historically when actual US paint schemes existed.
Nothing to do with nerd scale or anything, but limiting your market reach for a product isn't the smartest when many people that do care about authentic scale representations probably won't buy this plane.

I would rather see a 1400~1600mm Bugatti R100 with a contra rotating motor and a "what if" paint job...and a 1600mm version of the Wingnetic.

There were actually blue-painted American Spitfires used for photo-recon. I wonder why they just didn't do one of those?

Looks great. Who cares if its a fantasy colour scheme. It is a toy after all!
Good job HK

Paitently waiting for the bigger avios spitfire though. Unfortunately for me, 1100mm is a little small for my old eyes.

exactly.... Some even had invasion stripes too.
The Navy flew some spitfires over Europe as recon plane's as you said while the US Army had several squadrons also. But all in Europe and the Mediterranean theater.
The US did not fly spitfires in the Pacific.
A what if is fine and dandy for those that don't care anything about history.

Attached photo is my Australian Spitfire(86" wingspan).
Also have a German Spitfire and two British scheme aircraft.
I wouldn't mind having an American spitfire, but would be the recon blue scheme with invasion stripes.
