High speed spitfire N.17 K9834 Serial: N.17 (K9834) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v216/96th_Nightshifter/HighSpeedSpitfiresmall.jpg This aircraft was modified for attempt on the World's Speed Record powered by special Merlin III with + 27 lb. boost producing 2160 hp at sea level. Subsequently rebuilt to Mk.II standard and camouflaged through which the gold stripe eventually appeared. We don't have this Mk. of Spitfire in the game (FB+AEP+PF), and though the MK.Vb would have been a closer resemblance, mapping problems and the fact that this is supposed to be a fast plane made me go with the MKVIII (CW). It will fit the standard MK.VIII but the wings are different on this High Speed Spit and more closely resemble a clipped wing version. No mark version included. Available Here
