    Excellent piece of work. New prop, check the crank and block for damage, check the structural integrity, fix the underside sheetmetal, AND FIX THE LANDING GEAR. She'll be good as new.

    I'll say. Almost anti-climactic.

    Masterful job by the pilot. Almost made it look like that was how it was supposed to land.

    So just curious. What does a kit spitfire cost? Does it have a Merlin or Griffon engine or something a bit more tame?

    Great landing ....but how unlike a spitfire does a plane have to be before it loses the title "spitfire replica" if you paint it white it will just look like a light aircraft.
