cheers, I will definately buy the Mustang when accusimmed and it will be nicely flyable from the Spitfire pit.
I suspected the B17 would be done first, the radial engined B377 and P47's gave you a good start on engine modelling I would think?
At least the P-51 gets the Merlin done, even if the cooling and engine handling is quite different from the early Spitfire.
Looking forward to an accusimed Spit down the track (not too far I hope).
thanks, it is a fun project. The starboard fuselage above the datum is now done. The port side is under construction with the door latch ordered. I am currently building the door itself. I had briefly considered a Mk XIX type arrangement without the door but couldn't bring myself to give up the half lock for takeoff and landing. I just want to get it as close to "real" to operate as possible...hence my longing for accusim....
Wife....um, I swapped her for a 1944 vintage gunsight.....
Seriously, she is great. This is my second cockpit (the first is an almost fully functioning F-16) and she is very supportive.
Total budget on the Spitfire is around A$15,000. The F-16 budget, well, that's "classified"!!
