As you expressed an interest in Warbirds, here are a few of a Spit undergoing its winter Maintenance programme, these are just a couple of hundreds of detail shots I have taken...... I have linked you to a few more at the bottom in case a 56Kr wants to see them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What corrosion inhibiting products are being used, Tony? That looks very well protected

Knowing the RAF, its previous owners it will be Dinitrol, which is a waxoyl type substance... the insides of the wings should be silver painted, but at somepoint it has been green primered which is not the correct finish.

The windscreen is being replaced with a newly blown item, so it is out at the moment, its a one piece curved item on the PR model

This will give you an Idea of the size of the Rads...... They are heavy, the port one was removed to sort a minor leak, you can see the stb one is being drained down in this not to good shot.
