During the s Shenstone and Lippisch continued to communicate about the flying problems they faced. In Shenstone designed the first deltawing bomber, the Supermarine B. Through his delta-wing work and his study of German glider designs, Shenstone knew that the behavior of the airflow over the wing, as well as the wing loading itself, were the two key factors in creating an advanced wing.

Applied to the Spitfire, it gave Britain a match for the Messerschmitt MeE when it most urgently needed such a plane. Anyone interested in seeing how talented engineers seek and find solutions toward improving flight characteristics, and how mathematical theory makes its way from the drawing board to soaring reality, should find Secrets of the Spitfire a satisfying read.

Jan 6, Now that we're at faster Spitfires - is there a firm performance data on the Merlin-powered PR variants? The demise of Mk. III was a result of a half-harted effort. Laws of physics were firmly with Spitfire's Shenstone's actually?

All of these things were eventually adressed from late on, it was too bad that Mk. V was the worst offender in here, just in time the LW upped up the bar with their mph fighters from second half of Aozora Staff Sergeant.

Here is a report from , courtesy of the late Edgar Brooks, describing how to improve the paint finish of the Spitfire; it's often assumed that the RAF fighters all had a matt finish in In fact the "Type S" finish was adopted quite a lot earlier than many modellers realise. Also attached is another report from , plus some instructions from the RAAF on maintaining the Spitfire's airframe.

As a model builder who has always resisted the tendency in the last twenty years or so to make aircraft models looking like patch work quilts it is always reassuring to know the lengths to which people went to ensure that the originals didn't look like that either.
