A wee while ago, a guy came up to buy a painting from me, and he then began to ask about the numerous(!) Spitfire models I had out on display.  Within ten minutes, he'd convinced me to build a model for his brother, who is a massive Spitfire fan.  

I met with the guy's brother, and his spec was simple: build a Battle of Britain-type Spitfire.

During the course of the discussion, he'd mentioned reading Geoffrey Wellum's book, First Light, and had watched the TV-film made from it.  That helped make my mind up for the colour scheme, as I knew the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire IIa had worn Wellum's markings once.  

Anyway, this was the end result - Revell's big Spitfire IIa.

I rather enjoyed this one - apart from the fiddly seat components.  In fact, I've ended up buying myself one to build!
