    Spitfire Brotherhood (All Spitfires Welcome)

    Spitfire Brotherhood,

    I took delivery on a Comp-ARF Spitfire in January 2011. Lazy Eight and I started a build thread then, but I was delayed by other projects and Lazy Eight decided to sell during his build.

    Because of all of the interest I have seen in Spitfires on the former build thread, I thought there would be some interest also in forming a Spitfire Brotherhood.

    I invite all Spitfire builders and flyers to join the brotherhood and ask you to post your Spitfire builds here regardless if it is from Scratch, Kit, ARF, or RTF.

    If already complete, please post some photos and let us know what you chose for the Powerplant, radio, and how it fly’s.

    If you would like to join the Spitfire Brotherhood, please send me an e-mail at flightleader@warbirdsoverok.org, send me a PM or e-mail right here on RCU, or just make your request right here on this thread. I will track when I receive request and assign you a number based on the order by date and time when received. Who knows, maybe in the future we can have some squadron shirts and/or hats made.

    Never can tell when you might run into another Spitfire Brother somewhere, so join now.

    RE: Spitfire Brotherhood (All Spitfires Welcome)

    This thread needs some Spitfire pictures.

    Check out the funny little mountain in the background, btw.

    She is just a H9 ARF, but hauls the mail with the OS91 and Master Airscrew 3 blade. Don't have the exhaust stacks finished yet, and that's a pity, but the ones that came in the box would look worse.

    No kidding, she'll do over 100 and not break a sweat. Looks really nice beating up the field at speed.

    RE: Spitfire Brotherhood (All Spitfires Welcome)

    I'm in too. Great idea.

    1978 Guillows free flight and I was hooked.

    Dynaflight 40. (still a partial kit for my kids??)

    Two Pica 88' spits.

    - First was silver and Belgium cockards with cannons for high altitude MkIX. ST3000 and 26.5 lbs
    Later converted to gas 3w-50. Lost to enemy action 2008. Ignition magnet came loose and gas engine died during a loop. I thought I had the field made and lowered the gear. you know the rest...Stall, spin, crash, burn and die. Should have bellied it in.

    - Second Pica done up in American colors in Sicily scheme: Dark earth and sand HL*K .
    Moki 2.10. 23 lbs. Upgrading with yellow scale wheels , Mk IX fiberglass cowl from England and smoke system for 2012 season.

    Future Goal is the CARF Spitfire. So really looking forward to this.
    I may paint in restored colors from www.militaryaviationmuseum.org. see pics.

    RE: Spitfire Brotherhood (All Spitfires Welcome)

    My favourite WWII fighter. Started with a Gillows kit many years ago, did a Platt 60 size and then his 1/5 version, a 70” Brian Taylor MK XIV, an 88” version of the same MK XIV (blew the plans up) which I still have with a rebuilt wing. I have two 1/5 scale versions under construction and Iam considering 1/4 scale version.

    RE: Spitfire Brotherhood (All Spitfires Welcome)

    daRock,

    What prop are you using on your H-9 Spitfire?

    I'm running OS91 2-cycles on all my 60-90 size warbirds: H9 Spit, Thunderbolt, Corsair and Hellcat and the new TF P40. The Master Airscrew 14x7(3) is what's on all of them. I was worried at first the pitch would hurt landing approaches. No problem. The OS idles down perfectly and the airframes all seem to provide enough drag to get the airspeed down. That's a really lucky thing, as there are almost no 3 blades around.

    BTW, the Hellcat clocked 113mph on radar a couple of months ago. Then came in to land as slow as can be. So that prop and engine can do it all.

    I've recently gotten a Zinger 3-blade to test. It's got bolt in blades, so testing pitch and diameter is going to be possible. That's planned for the spring and will be done with the P40. It's got a huge spinner that can hide the huge hub setup on that Zinger. Man, I wish there were more 3s available. It really looks to me like our RC modeling community has shot itself in the head with the "efficiency" bullcrap.
    Good flying wit ya today

    da Rock,

    Thank you for the reply! My H-9 Spitfire has a JBA 15 (corrected). I have a 13x8x3 but it will be test-flown this coming Spring. I'm a native mid-westerner, but a bit of a houseplant when it comes to cold weather flying. Build, build, build!

    RE: Spitfire Brotherhood (All Spitfires Welcome)

    Hi. PM sent
    I have a 73" Mk XVI From a set of moulds that I traded some time ago. The Fuz looks similar to the Mick Reeves mouldings. The wings & tail are built up from plans, the retracts are home made and the spinner + decals came from Mick Reeves Models. Power comes {un-reliably}from a YS 140L. When the engine runs well the power is just right I have also found that at 14lb the spit is also a resonable glider!!!
    I plan to replace the YS with a Saito gasser.
    On the wish list there is either a Ziroli Spit or an ESM 50cc Spit. I would like to see large models of the later Griffon engine Spitfires available in kit or ARTC form as these longer nose mks would make better models {wider LG spacing, heaps more fin/rudder & less ballast} How about a nice scale bubble canopy, Griffon spinner and a set of conversion drawings from the Ziroli team {hint hint}
