Flight Replicas releases the Supermarine Spitfire for FS2020
Flight Replicas has recently made their Spitfire available on the Marketplace store. The project was first announced in March 2022 and was submitted to the Marketplace on November 16th. Flight Replicas is a developer that has previously created several war legends for Prepar3D, such as the BF-109 and the B-24 Liberator, along with the Curtiss P40 for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Their earliest project dates back to 2002, which was the Messerschmitt Me-262. The Spitfire is a legendary British fighter aircraft crucial in World War II. Flight Replicas has chosen to focus on the Mk.la/Mk.IIa variant of the airframe for this recreation. The Spitfire was designed by Reginald Mitchell in the early 1930s, with its first flight taking place in March 1936, powered by the Rolls Royce Merlin III engine.
The Spitfire, an iconic aircraft, is renowned for its unmistakable design silhouette that features low-drag elliptical wings. It was equipped with new design and airframe construction techniques, such as its semi-monocoque construction and aluminum alloys, making it a highly efficient interceptor. The aircraft gained altitude rapidly, earning its well-known history as a hero of the Battle of Britain. Flight Replicas has created a model of the Spitfire based on actual factory drawings and schematics.
The model has full PBR textures, a fully modeled cockpit with custom sounds, and various animations for doors, canopies, and other operational functions. Accurate liveries based on the specific variants and models during the aircraft’s development period are included. This model depicts the conversion of use to 100 octane fuel, which increased performance over 87 octane. You can purchase the Flight Replicas Spitfire model on the Marketplace for $19.49. Flight Replicas has also published the manual for the aircraft on their website free of charge. Please visit their Facebook page or website to learn more about the Flight Replicas Spitfire.
