Spitfire LF MK IX b

Here is the finished painting of the Spitfire. I have changed it to a four blade propeller and added some shading. It is a painting of a Supermarine Spitfire LF Mk IX b. it was made at Castle Bromwich in 1943.
The newly built planes were delivered to squadrons around the country by female pilots.
I can still remember the airfield and hangers there before it became a vast non-descript housing estate.
I have no plans to paint any more airplanes at the moment but you never know.
The painting is with the framer now, Mrs Cox.
