Plane Design Status Update
As is quite clear from the lack of recent updates, Plane Design's development work is largely on hiatus. There are several projects "in the works", but none are imminently going to be released. Support e-mails are still answered, and products are still available to purchase.

We thank all of our customers for their support.

Yes, we are still alive!
Spitfire Mk.VIII

Due to some changes in circumstances, development at Plane Design has slowed somewhat.
These shots are quite old, but show our work in progress project - Mk.VIII, Mk.IX and Mk.XI Spitfires. We have modelled many minor detail differences within the marks - undercarriage variations, bulges on the wings and even the cannon fairings are among the subtle variations we have included. If you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know.
