Supermarine Spitfire Mk1a

OH MY GAWD! IT IS FEATURED THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS!!!

 hello! This is my Spitfire I have been working on for a while
 (2 months) 
 as you can imagine I got frustrated with it a lot! check out below for a list of some of the features!

Features

A bullet ejection system (Courtesy of @AdlerSteiner)
A functional cockpit!
Working control surfaces (Except for ailerons the elliptical wing shape make it annoying!)

Controls

Trim - trim (very sensitive though)
ag7 - navigation lights

Takeoff

Throttle 100%
slowly pull up and DO NOT USE TRIM!

Landing

throttle 5% upon early approach and use the brake on midair but not upon touchdown
do not pull up upon touchdown instead gently apply brakes and wait till your speed is below 60 mph then you may attempt to slowly pull up

Credit

@randomusername for doing the flight performance (Dang! I can imagine a lot of work went into that! go give him a follow!)

@MisterT for great inspiration and letting me use his control stick.

@AdlerSteiner for the bullet ejection system

@pavthepilot for being a great friend and inspiration!

    @Tang0five It is actully a bit lighter than the natural designer and it helps me focus a bit.

    Could I help with beta testing the historic accuracy of future builds. Link me the build and tell me that you want it tested.

    Great build, great that you’ve credited those who have assisted but why choose that background it’s v dark!? I’m the least artsy fartsy when it comes to these things so if you were going for a “dark ambiance to reflect the nature’s of war man......” I’ll wind my neck in!

    Great job! I've got one suggestion though; you shoulda made the LGs retract flat to the wings
