To all intents and purposes they were a Spitfire with a Mustangs low flow laminar wing and your right. It didn't really work.helmitsmit said:Just out of interest what do you think about the Seafang and Spiteful? Personally I think they look like a cross between a Mustang and a Spitfire mk 24. It really doesn't work does it? The eliptical wing was actually more aerodynamic!
cheddar cheese said:I think not...Theres nothing amazing about the way the Spitfire looks. I think there are several planes which far eclipse it in terms of looks.

The Spitfire VIII had more structural improvements than the Spitfire IX. For all intents and purposes, the Spitfire IX was simply a Mk.VC with a Merlin 60 series engine in it. The Mk.VIII was redesigned to be fitted with the Merlin 60 series engines, so it was more refined.
