CARF Spitfire with Kolm IL230

Hello !

i thought maybe some of you are interested in the build up of a spitfire with a big engine. Specially the engine install, front support and baffling.

Please tell me if not :-)

here we go: started some weeks ago.

Cutted the original firewall and used the install kit that comes from Kolm.
Also i created the parts for the front support. needed the free space around for the silencer.

servos for the engine are in, linkage is done.

also you can see the amazing silencer from zimmermann. this one is for the Galloping ghost, but we make it fit for the spitfire.

Depending on my engine: yes

The manual says 50cc and I use 230. So , take a look inside your wing and make your own experience. My friends from formation team and I decided to do it. Not a big deal and makes us feel saver.
