Another Spitfire at Ardmore 23-8-2014

I was about to head home yesterday when I spied this in the back of Ardmore Helicopters hangar ( alongside Kittyhawk ZK-CAG).

It is the Rolls Royce Griffon powered Spitfire XIV ZK-XIV that has been listed to Avspecs Ltd since July 2007.  This is the Spitfire that Sir Tim Wallis had his unfortunate accident in, on 2 January 1996, and it has been through a series of owners since.  It is painted with the two tone blue RAF Far East and Pacific roundels.

The guys in the hangar told me that there hasn't been any work done on it for quite some time, but it does look fairly complete.  Could it be a candidate for Classic Fighters 2015?
