Does anyone out there know of a 1/16 Spitfire or Hurricane model which is available, or for that matter CAD files for one?
I am asking because i want to make a towable 1/16 model for my kids so they can use their scale tractors to tow around a warbird when we attend shows and exhibitions. We attend a aviation museum quite regularly and it would just be cool.
It does not need to be able to fly, although i would fit a slow spinning prop for diorama purposes

Sorry if posted in wrong area, but if i can get one, pictures will be dropped in below and some videos of them being dragged by a tractor also

It's 1/12 so need to be rescaled to 0.75 in slicer.

Excellent, will look into that aswell.

It has to be British preferably Spitfire as my son is obsessed with them, plus the tractor i made has been painted up as WW2 colours.

You could get these RC versions which you could fly one day (although at 665/700mm will be very touchy to fly so would suggest installing a stabiliser)

Bit small at 665mm but close to 1/16th

NiceSky Mini Hurricane 700mm so bang on 1/16

Cannot find a listing for it but they are around.
