+xynudu Thanks Rob , That one took everything I have as far as engineering goes, I was offered the challenge by the local council and could't resist ,Looking at your vids I have a feeling YOU would have taken this on ? I have many sculptures around the world but this was a bitch ,It is on Google Earth , Thanks Mate

@Heyleduc Thanks for that , I was trying to get the movement thing right , a fixed prop would have looked daft as my intention was to make it look as much as possible as if it was flying so this came about by experimentation and looks great at night , Thanks

@23vin850 Yea I know , This is a Monument to the prototype Spitfire and to be honest it is really just to capture the basic image of this moment of the first flight of K5054 , as this is situated on a busy roundabout the first image to me is what it is all about , It just shouts Spitfire for the public , I hope it is a fitting tribute to what was after all an experimental aircraft at the time, as is my tribute to it

@SleepEat3D This is on the roundabout just outside Southampton airport in Hampshire , this was known as Eastleigh Airport at the time of the first flight of the prototype Spitfire, My Spitfire is flying towards the control tower , Hopefully will be doing for some time , Thanks for your interest

They are still used in the aircraft industry and are very popular in america where many are available on the market from small bench top hobby types to larger floor standing models ,strange as it is called the English wheel that they are less popular here , i made the one i used for the Spitfire and taught myself how to use it, they are not that difficult to use it just takes some practice and some patience

The prototype Spitfire K5054 Didn't have a bubble canopy as this was very difficult to tool up for so a flat one was used for test purposes, She weighs around threequaters of a ton including the stand
