Supermarine Spitfire Mk 25 ZK-VRG at Feilding Open Day 27-4-2024

There was an open day at Feilding aerodrome on Saturday 27 May with a good attendance of aircraft.  One that caught my eye was Gary Marsh's 75% scale replica Supermarine Spitfire Mk 25 ZK-RGV:

I thought it looked a little different and on comparison with older photos I discovered that there has been some major rework done on the engine cowling.  If you compare it with the earlier photo below that was taken at Stratford in June 2019 you can see that it does not now have the lower scoop and this has been replaced by openings in the front either side of the spinner.  Here Gary Marsh taxies in.

And it has also lost the sharks teeth and the Grey Nurse name as well as the "kills" markings.  Thanks to Dave Homewood for these photos.
