Hi, new to the forums.

I've built various model spitfires to about 1/12th scale but the schematics I am using are basically scaled up from a balsa kit with like 18 frames for the fuselage, etc.

I realise the real thing had more like 29 frames for the fuselage.

Are these available online anywhere? I would like to make a 1/8th model with the correct frames and stringers and things Smiley
