"Hello Kevin - thanks for contacting me! I apologize for the lateness in getting back to you. It's been a pretty busy summer and fall here after my wife and kids moved to our new house.
It's great to hear of your interest…"

If you haven't noticed yet from my profile, I absolutely love Spitfires. My profile picture is me sitting in what I believe is the best spitfire restoration ever completed - "Marion" Mk. Vb YOD BL628 - the Spitfire my Grandfather flew back in 1942. You'll find lots of great information on Spitfires here as well as other great information and resources.
