Where the US engines as powerful as the RR engines?

It is the same exact engine, just manufactured under license in the US by Packard.

I wonder if I may have confused things when I posted "Allison Powered" under my air to air shots?

Just to clarify or re-clarify, the Spitfire images I posted are of a kit-built, 100%-scale replica that uses an Allison engine and not a Packard or a RR Merlin.

I find it interesting that Americans are making kits of such an iconic British aeroplane.

I can understand it though.

Imagine being able to fly in a brand new Spitfire...

As a pilot, I imagine that would be an incredible experience.

I wonder how much one would cost though?

I think I read somewhere that the gentleman who built the one I shot A2A has roughly $250K in his...

I'd say fire-wall-forward alone would be in the $100k range. Then add in everything else. Thanks for posting the link Jay - I didn't know Bob's airplane was built from an available kit. I for some reason thought he did all of the engineering on it.

How in line is that with other single seater aircraft costs, say factory built?

For those who have an interest in the Spitfire, the UK warbirds magazine "FlyPast" issued a special edition a couple of months ago titled "Spitfire 75...Celebrating Britians Greatest Fighter". I can recommend to anyone for has an ongoing interest in this great aircraft ,to get hold of a copy. Full of stories, pictures of the development of the aircraft, the different Marks, the Merlin engine and of cause the guys who flew them during WW2. Of interest to our USA friends, the magazine has a section dedicated to the Spifires flown by the USAAF during WW2( a little known fact).

I have always found it to be a beautiful plane (my dad likes the mustang), country of origin doesnt matter, same with a beautiful woman, does it really matter where she came from..:D
