        TE184 was a Merlin 266 powered LF MkXVIe and as such was built at a time (march/april 45) when all MkIX and MKXVI spits were low back. To me its a shame it was changed to something its not when we have ample normal spitfires about and few of the bubble top that represented the pinicle of the modified merlin range. Just my veiw.

          Talking of Merlin power, not a colour you see every day. TE184 being dismantled in Oct 2006.

            Red was quite a popular colour for Vintage V12 built Merlins, TD248's was the same, in fact both aircraft shared the same hangar for a few years.

              Most of the American Merlin rebuilders have used some kind of a "house color" on their engines. Nixon (Vintage V-12) and Sandberg (JRS) were red. As I remember it Dwight Thorn (Mystery Aire) used metallic blue, while Jack Hovey painted the blocks in gold.

                If you watch Kermit Weeks videos from Vintage V12s from a few months back you'll see a couple of different colours on Merlins! I believe there was a bluey grey colour and a lovely looking OD sort of a colour if my memory serves me right!

                    Wednesday 18th April

                    A hot sunny day at Duxford and I topped up my tan that I started on Saturday. There was a big aircraft movement before the museum opened when Handley Page HPR.7 Herald/G-APWJ was moved from Airliner Row into AirSpace where it will spend the next few days being finished painted and having missing bits added. The FSM Spitfire, on the hangar base, has been marked up to represent QV-I/X4474 a Mk.1 Spitfire of 19 Squadron and then it will be on loan to the RAF as it goes around the country as one of the static exhibits on the 'RAF100' tour. Spitfire/PT462 was flying passengers again and Spitfire Mk FRXVIIIe/SM845 went up for a short air test and a spot of aerobatics afterwards. In the order taken.

                                    You really have to hand it to DAS for their work on their airliners dont you - I think they've refurbished most of them over the last ten years or so and big old beasties to work on!
