Very nice!!!👍

A HAF Spitfire MkIX (MJ755) was just recently restored to flying status. The restoration works took place in UK and the return of the aircraft in Greece is expected soon. It’s in the same colors with your model.

This is a nice model. A Spitfire in Greek colours is indeed a rare sight. I found an interesting article about Spitfire IX MJ755:

Indeed it was the subject of a fascinating documentary, Channel 4 I think? 

They even found the original RAF pilot who ferried it to Greece at the time and reunited him with it.
