Supermarine Spitfire MK IA Prototype K5054 - Farnborough, September 1939. Repaint for the A2A Simulations WoP3 model showing Spitfire K5054 in the RAF Type A camouflage it wore through 1938 and 1939 in its ongoing role as a test aircraft. On 4 September 1939, the day after Britain declared war on Nazi Germany, K5054 crashed at the Royal Aircraft Establishment Farnborough and was written off the register. Textures by Grant MacLean/A2A Simulations. (See also SPIT1-3FIX.ZIP).

PLEASE NOTE:

Due to the model's texture structure, only the 3-bladed prop will show the historically correct front metal spinner/retainer -- and then only after startup -- while the historically correct 2-bladed prop appears with an inaccurate black spinner. I prefer using the 3-blader for its accurate external views post-startup, but it's your choice.

INSTALLATION:

1. Extract/unzip the SPIT1-3.ZIP file into a temporary folder.

2. Move the folder TEXTURE.K5054-3 to the WoP3_Spitfire folder in the FSX Airplanes folder.

3. Copy the text between the asterisks below into the AIRCRAFT.CFG file in your WoP3_Spitfire folder, at the end of the previous [fltsim.X] entries, replacing the 'X' in [fltsim.X] with the next sequential number.
