Very nice Spitfires you have got there, guys. Well, I just got my set of plans for the 62.5" Spitfire from Tony Nijhuis and I'm going to build it this winter as a sideproject (I'm currently building a Fokker D VIII in 1/4 scale). 

As I live in Iceland I'm going to order my materials from abroad. Does any of you have a list of the balsa needed to complete the plane? 

Regards from the arctic circle,

Hi Arni,
I don't have a specific list, but you can never have too much 2, 3, 4, and 6mm Balsa sheet in my opinion.
I recall needing a couple of sheets of 10 and 12 mm as well and a couple of lengths of 3/4" triangle.
A sheet of 3mm light ply will be needed too and some lengths of 6mm sqr and 6mm x 3mm spruce.
Cheers and good luck,

Thanks Hugh! I really look forward to build this Spitfire. Maybe I'll add some photos to this thread but be warned - I'm a VERY slow builder!

Not a reply to any specific post - but a friend of mine in our club built one of these - he did not put retracts in but did modify for flaps -split flaps as per original. I'm not sure what engine - its a 2 stroke and I think its quite an old OS 60. Flies really well.
