what is the policy of this forum on profiles .

Are you familiar with the source grading policies?

I find it very interesting that the proposed Sabre-engined Spitfire proposal also attempts to alleviate one of the Spitfires most notorious design flaws – Its narrow centre-lined, main landing gear arrangement!
I have for years wondered why after so much continues upgrading and redesign of the numerous Spitfire variants, as to why they did not fix this problem.
Going by the 3-view drawing of the Sabre-engine Spitfire – it almost looks of Fw-190 influence, from head-on!

Yes, I think this design has very little in common with a Spitfire. Saying it was a Spitfire, did you mean: a Supermarine single-piston-engine fighter? (look at the fin, so different from a Spitfire, both Mk 1 and Mk 24):

        The W-winged version also seems to address that issue as well, & it at least looks like a Spitfire derivative. The Sabre a/c seems to share nothing with a Spit.
