Spitfires, especially of early modifications, had problems with oil leakage

You are right but this oil would not have spread oil all over the upper surfaces giving the 'brick pavers' effect. Your build quality and weathering techniques are superb but quite inappropriate on the specific model and time that you have indicated.

Spitfire MkI – 19 Squadron RAF, (1)

If you had titled it "Worn out Spitfire ready for scrapping" it would be different. I would love to see you do a Sunderland, using the same total quantity of weathering materials as you used on that Spitfire - it would look brilliant!
