and this one but no laser cut parts.
A bit smaller, but you can always sheet the Guillows.
I built one with ailerons and a good amount of washout and right-down thrust. It was actually an easy launch and flight. Agreed that the sheeting really does make the look on the Spitfire, as it is not covered framework like the rear of a Hurricane. I had to sheet my Spitfire fuse. All things considered, if I had used lighter sheeting and covering, I could have easily sheeted both the wing and fuse, and still ended up no heavier. One nice thing with Spitfires, is that the wing area is large at any scale. The Guillows Spitfire has the most wing area of the series, at 1 square foot.
