Had the opportunity to pick up a TopFlite Spitfire build by a great builder. Glassed as well! Had not flown for 15 years. Put in a new Saito-125 with a 14-7 three blade, test flight today, all went well! Happy camper!

FYI the cooling openings are way to big but it's all good you should be happy for many years to come.

Looks good, have you flown it yet ? I saw the splash in Model Airplane News that it was very stable and a good flyer.
Curious as to what sized spinner and what sized tires it took ?
Thanks

That´s not my Spitfire. I provided only the dummy exhaust stacks. But that is not only one H9 30cc Spitfire I supported with some scale accessories. I guess that H9 Spitfire is really good warbird.
