I looked at that way of doing it and sadly it won't work for us doing it like that, not at the moment anyway.

I'll look into the weaponary idea as I that one may be viable.

If not both wing models, why not the way it was intended as a high altitude interceptor to bring down bombers and their escort?

The Spitfire was designed as a short range, high performance fighter, it's origins date back from point defence.

Some of the later marks had pressurised cockpits et al for high altitude work but it was by no means designed as that from day one.

Clipped wings were more common on MkXIV's then elliptical ones, plus us having access to several clipped wing spitfires helps us with the production process.

All the best

Not in my experience. Variants are definitely possible.

My own question: do you have someone lined up to do your flight modeling, or not yet?

We actually have several positions open, anyone interested should drop me a pm.

As for alternative variants it's our intention to do one variant. The low back with clipped wings. Anything above that we can consider pending data, cost and time frames

Full marks for creativity.

If that works then I will make sure you get a beta invite to DCS Spitfire Mk XIV

Pman

Fingers crossed then!

Prefer the clipped wings anyway, the only advantage the long wings provide is at high altitude, down low they just slow you down (is the theory of the war office at the time)

Yepp! Better maneuverability at high altitude! Where you fight the bomber escorts... anyway they don't have access to an elliptic wing version, so it will be the clipped wing one they have access to, to model and compare. Absolutely reasonable argument!

What does "low back" mean? bubble cockpit?

We know Dora and Bf109K4 will available in future, Luftwaffe D9/K4 are 1944 late, and P51D(18lbs boost) is 1944 early. Spitfire XIV(18lbs initially) came into service in 1944 Jan.
Before D day, allied decided to increase boost from 18lbs to 21lbs and they accomplished this indeed(spitfire IX even 25lbs boost).

To FairPlay, we'd like to see 21lbs SpirfireXIV! Better performance below FTH.

Yea low back = bubble canopy

As for the fuel grade and topped out performance grade that's Tbc.

We wont be tuning our aircraft to specifically fight any other third parties aircraft. They will be as they are depending on our references and available aircraft airframes and data.
