I would have never known that a Spitfire was some kind of animal, though.

LOL. The Spitfire is indeed is an animal of sorts. A nice butterfly or moth should qualify it as a flying thing at least. (Aside thought, Is that is why R.J. did not like the name given to his plane? Hmmm...)
Kev you realize that this thread could easily surpass the color blue GB in length about which ac is blue enough. And folks in our family here can be smart A**es.

I gots MiG kits and decals for Asian countries... Sounds interesting
If Iron Rain wins I will build a Claude. Nice and wide open your GB choices are.

The Air Ministry submitted a list of possible names to Vickers-Armstrong for the new aircraft, then known as the Type 300. One of these was the improbable Shrew. The name Spitfire was suggested by Sir Robert McLean, director of Vickers-Armstrongs at the time, who called his spirited elder daughter Annie Penrose "a little spitfire". The word dates from Elizabethan times and refers to a fiery, ferocious type of person; at the time it usually meant a girl or woman of that temperament. Previously the name had been used unofficially for Mitchell's earlier F7/30 Type 224 design. Mitchell is reported to have said it was "just the sort of bloody silly name they would choose".

Yeh, but it's still an animal, so it's in the GB, if that is the one chosen of course.

So what you are really saying is that, if you can't get a Spitfire into a Group Build then the build won't happen?
