    I'm waiting for the first restoration of a Spitfire based on a pencil rubbing of a real data plate taken from a Spitfire that took part in the Battle of Britain that was subsequently shot down and converted to aluminium ingots which later became a fine set of kitchen saucepans after going through separate lives as a Lancaster, a toaster, a Vulcan then finally finding fame after being used by Nigella Lawson.

    Now that won't be a data plate special that will be a hot plate special

        I don't think you are aerodynamically suited to fly, but there might be some parts of you usefull enough for Nigella to chew on !!!!

          So, is a spitfire data worth much?

              Photos of P7819 in its original (pre-crashed) state are in existence, it seems. Thus, this potential project ought to have a reference source for its eventual finish and markings.....

              Get your drawing board out, Roobarb!

                Very, very interesting markings.

                Addendum for Vol. II of the boo...perhaps.
