Strange TradeMe: Spitfire MK16 for sale

Wicked.  You don’t know how long I have been waiting for one of these to come up 2nd hand on TradeMe.  Thanks Sam

I wonder how much the new paint job will cost, warfare colours are so 1944 last year.

The TradeMe auction has had over 137,000 views.  I especially like how the seller allows pick ups.  Handy.

Vickers-Supermarine Spitfire is offered for sale. You have the opportunity to own one of WW11’s most famous fighters. In the 15-years of front-line service was unequalled by any other Allied fighter Aircraft. All together 20,351 Spitfires were built, no fewer than 50 are flying in the world today. This Spitfire is not a composite nor a facsimile but is a genuine factory built aircraft with no equal in New Zealand today, with all original equipment as fitted by the factory in 1944. This aircraft is not currently flying.  P.O.A

 Click to enlarge – The aircraft is currently not flying, hence its stationary appearance in the pics.
