No I have not received the model yet, I live in Gibraltar and we do not have any model shop here all has to be bought abroad, we pay a lot for the shipping, the good thing is we VAT free.

AeroGasRC, In reference to the covering brand on the Seagull Spitfire; Sig states on their website that the Seagull Spitfire in covered with Ultra Coat. Have you tried to match your plane with Ultra coat OD ? Hope this helps

Bought the same last year, and built it right from the box exept for the linkage and hinges on the flaps The original retract gave up after 8 flights, so I have to replace them.

Here is something like a voltage regulator.
TA152 whatīs your flight weight? A read some threads, that the C.G. on this Spitfire is big problem, because the fuel tank is far from C.G. Did you have any problem with it?

Finally received the oleo legs and cut off the fire wall. Now I see the engine in the cowl. I have to say that cowl is perfect, isnīt it?

That's a great idea, it's good for all the fuel and at the same time gives it more strength.

Thinking about new wing covering. When I was taking the stick labels down I found out, the grey colour isnīt paint but film. I took the grey film down and saw many small holes in the green covering under the grey one. I have a solid silver film, maybe this way would be better than to repair the original covering.
