    I stole the idea from Jan's thread, and then I found this page:

    I think that making a model of one of Kaj Birksted's three Spitfires could be interesting. ;)

    Some danish Spitfires:

    41-407.

    422 in the field carrying the marking "Arrigtrolden", which is the Danish word for a "spitfire".

    A low-back Mk. IXE fitted with a 90 gallon long-range slipper tank.

    Sheer beauty.

    They all are.

    The first colour photo looks like HF.IXe 41-407, ex PL375 of Eskadrille 725, Karup 1951.

    Below HF.IXe 41-422, ex RR252, 5 Eskadrille Karup 1951-52.

    Cannot see the serial on the low-back, possibly HF.IXe ex TE296 reserialed 41-436.
