He answers emails promptly and if its in stock he sends right away. I waited 2-3 months, but I told him that I was not in hurry and I also asked him different questions for most of a year before I ordered.
I give him a thumbsup!!

Jeff,

Thanks. That puts him head and shoulders above a bunch of them if he returns emails promptly....

Fokke,

Over here, that expression means you agree with the statement just made. In other words, if I could, I'd be on my way over there, too--after I saw the picture you posted. It's a compliment to your beautiful home.

Now I understand, because there are expressions in the English language can not be translated literally, not all expressions in American or English I understand well
Thanks for the good words .

The photos that ForcesR posted are Spitfire XVI (Merlin engine) and not XIV (Griffon). Not exactly the subject of fokke's present design but a nice Spitfire type, nevertheless.

Sorry for that mistake folks, my "Dyslexia" kicks in every so often and I cannot see the mistakes I made and usually it is to late to make immediate corrections.

It's also known as "seniors moment"!!

Roger,

perttime is correct. The pictures you posted clearly show a Mk XVI. The give aways are the cowling showing no rocker cover bulges, the pointed tail, and if not the 4 bladed prop (Mk XIV had a 5 bladed prop) the fact that the rotation of the prop is counter clockwise when viewed from the front of the plane which is correct for a merlin powered Spitfire. The griffon engined Spitfire had the opposite rotation. Also if you click on any of the pictures it says it's a Mk XVI in the title of each one.

Steve
