I haven't seen any mention of the Silver Spitfire project on Britmodeller. It has involved the rebuilding of a 1943 Spitfire into a demilitarised version, and the planning and (eventual) execution of a round-the-world flight. The flight will take in many of the world's most famous landmarks and cover 27,000 miles over 4 months. In the words of the website: "The expedition will reunite the Spitfire with the many countries that owe their freedom, at least in part, to this iconic aircraft. The unmistakable sight and sound of this aircraft once again gracing the skies aims to inspire future generations more than eighty years after R.J. Mitchell’s timeless design first graced the skies." The Boultbee Academy seem to be behind the enterprise. It sounds like a great adventure - and a worthy subject for a model replica. Brian
