File Description:
Polished, bare metal textures,including clean VC, for the RealAir Spitfire 2008 Mark IX of a fairly rare (cannon + 4 MGs) Spitfire FVIII in impeccable condition prior to its first display flight -- the only such aircraft to fly during WWII. Painted in its original non-standard RAF markings with silver-painted fabric control surfaces, the aircraft is currently displayed at the South African National Museum of Military History in Johannesburg. It also has great historical interest: in 1944 this SAAF aircraft was sent from he war zone to South Africa at the specific request of General Smuts -- Churchill's close friend and confidant -- for display purposes to boost morale. Pilots found no discernible differences in handling between the Mk VIII and the the Mk IX versions. These entirely reworked textures more closely represent the real aircraft than the worn and grubby first version (SPITSAM.ZIP). Textures by Grant MacLean/Sean Moloney/RealAir.
