Griffon Spitfires

SAS Cutout, from HSFX/UP pack, the 2 Mk12 and 2 Mk14 Spitfires from these packs, for manual instal SAS ModAct users

I have had much call from SAS ModAct users for a download of these, and Zorin kindly gave his blessing for this cutout. I am glad because, this is certainly for me, the most agressive looking model of the beautifull Spitfire. Especially the MkXIVe with clipped wings. Its like, a Spitfire on steroids....a bull-dyke Spitfire! :P Its like one of those girls on the cover of Female-Fitness magazine. Muscle worship time!!!

Changes: Removal of duplicate Plane and Cockpit Folders

Note: I could not find the credits in any old downloads I had of previous versions, nor more credits in any readme afterwards. What I could get is below, my sincere appologies if I left anyone out. Please let me know.

Ah yes, Griffon Spitfires. I've got a UP install already, but I'm sure the manual installers will appreciate them.

Can I just give a couple of warnings to those eager to fly these beasts - they bite! Firstly, the prop goes the other way, so you'll need a bootfull of left trim for takeoff, even with a locked tailwheel. And even then, the torque can send you hurtling sideways if you open the throttle too quick. You can probably safely take off with about 90% power anyway...

Once you get the beast airborne, don't expect it to turn like a Spit Mk II either, at least until you get used to it. Flying these beasts demonstrates why they put so much effort into contra-rotating props...

Superb! Good thing they are in the same package.

Only one thing... the spinners look too small to me... Wrong plans used?
Also, there should be some cowling panel and tail differences between XII and XIV...

spit XII early with VIII type vertical rudder

notice that the nose is somewhat shorter than XIV and has a straight panel between nose and fuselage

Mk XIV late with bubble canopy

Is there a possibilty of getting a 21lbs boost version of the MkXIV?

There are so many boosted versions of the Bf109 and Fw190, and even though there is not a big difference in maximum speed, the extra 10-15mph at low level would be very useful.

Question? The mod loads and work great in QMB but in FMB Dogfight missions it locks the game up when any of the Spitfires are selected. I'm running UP2.01 if thats any help,plus using Zuti DSMod v 1.12 UP also.
