The source of the Spitfire I believe? Interesting set of planes and ships expertly presented.

Good to see the old 'Bargain Area' wallowing along! Instantly recognisable too. What a splendid 'review'-type painting! Such action and variety, all so convincingly done! When can I become your pupil, Jim? Donald.

Unusual and fascinating subject Jim, and wonderfully depicted. I wonder how many people realised at that time, just how far that aircraft would go, and how important to the preservation to our way of life it would become?
