Yes it is possible to do a short version of the wings. It is very easy to do so by changing the detail of the wingtip

Hi Fokke

Are you going to make your design available to the modelling community? if so then what are the chances of you designing a second set of rear fuselage formers to model the low back version of this spitfire {and perhaps a canopy design}. There are precious few designs out there for a griffon engine low back spit.

If you need a friend for the Dora, you let me know you can never have too many Dora's! I keep looking and thinking about your Emil too. my favorite version of the 109.

Good luck with the Spitty, looks like you already have plenty of fans queuing up to buy one

Thanks

Hi Fokke
Sorry, I didn't look closely enough to your posts to see that you run an on line store {too busy ogling your lovely cad work}
So I guess the question is when is your spit available and what format i.e plans+ laser cut parts or largely pre-built?

I aquired a set of moulds to produce Mk 9 {& Mk16 early} fuz+cowl+canopy+radiators&other lumpy bumpy bits at 1\6 scale. These parts are accompanied by a set of wing & tail drawings. This looks very similar to the Mick Reeves product - suspiciously similar!!
I have only produced one model so far, powered by YS 140L & fitted with home made retracts. The 140 is an awesome power plant - when it goes!!!
I was looking at some photos of the plane during construction and finishing. My son looked sooo young then - he's now at university!

Regards
Dave Read

Hi Fokke,
Which CAD software are you using to design your models?
Are you also drawing the skin of the model or just the structure?

Thanks

Chirs, I work only with CorellDraw 13 , what you mean with "" skin of the model"" , if you talk about the cover with balsa NO I can't make it because I work only in 2D


Hi Dave
I start work with CorelDraw because I needed to make plywood ribs of my project BF-109 E4 . There I made wood ribs of wings and several ribs for the composite fuselage. I like the result so I wanted to try to draw something different and some entirely wooden model. I like this version of Spitfire , because the nose is longer , the wings are different and the vertical stab is pointed. I dont know Mike R kiit , I don't have it .
I had used many factory plans and my experience with BF-109 model to start build this model only for fun ( I build composite models ) I wanted to improve my experience to work with CorellDraw. Now I can see my mistakes and correct them Now I work on 1/5 scale FW-190 D 9-13 , so I nead to learn the Corell for the best results

Here you can see my old work with BF-109 :

[COLOR=#000000]Dave Read, this the method wich I use to make my plans .
I have 2.69 GB factory plans of each versions of Spitfire, so I make my plans under this factory plans

As we can see , the differens between XIV and XIVe is the the rudder to , so if I want to make it I shood change and rudder

Ok I see. That makes things a little faster to create if you have the factory drawings as well.
Did you buy the factory drawings from a guy in Australia on Ebay? A few years ago I bought a disc with a lot of FW 190 factory drawings, very helpful.
