  1. The clipped wing Spits that the SAAF operated in North Africa were by far the nicest looking of all the Marks that the SAAF operated! You did a nice job on this one!!!

  2. Hey there Bud, nice build again, well done.

  3. I will swap you the Centurion for this……………Deal?

  4. Tappie,
    Looks great I really like this version of the Spit and you have done it justice.

  5. Looking good, Tappie. Thats a good place here for posting Spitfires

  6. Danke schön, Herr Muller.

  7. Like @Bernd said, can’t have too many Spits.
