Keith- Not to worry- This move is taking way longer than expected. SO I say go ahead with deere's aircraft. By the time I get back to the Groupbuild, I will have changed my mind again!!!!! Rock on!!!

 

THOR, who has nothing unpacked to model with!

Hi Thor.

 

This is one of the only "period" photos I could find of this plane and it's dodgy to say the least.

It is clearly an exhibit somewhere and might even be a full size model.

Note the angle of the UC, the poles holding the plane up, the attitude of the prop, the exhaust stacks and the plaque out in front.

Good luck.

 

Are you sure this is an actual period picture? This one reminds me one of the mock-up Spitfires built for the Battle of Britain movie! The angle of the main LG legs looks closely similar!
