Scratch Build #23 - Spitfire Mk IX v2

After losing my other spitty to an electronics failure, I bit the bullet and built another one immediately after
This one has a few mods that made it better than her deceased sibling...
- Shorter and lighter tail for a better CG location without the need of ballast
- Much better retract mounts and wing doublers for reinforcing the mount area
- Better colour contrast for camouflage paint finish

Maiden was a huge success and I've been flying it regularly since then.
Awesome plane!
