I would like to set up a day each year to fly the spit in Brian's honer. I think it would be nice to have him named as the pilot on the spit and to make a custom battle art work on the cowl .
Thank you for the update Roger. I'm all for it! The plane will be Brian's legacy and should always be flown in his honor. Every time you fly it, it will remind you of him, and will serve to keep his memory alive.

I therefore opted to spend just a modest amount of the money on the interior detail parts and spend MORE money on the Pilot which is clearly visible to all.

This interior canopy DOES NOT lend itself to having an OPEN cockpit door for the Pilot to get in. I plan to "Simulate a Cockpit door with a hinge and a more defined space between the door and fuselage but mine will not actually open. This is something to ponder if you want a real door opening and you might have to look at an alternate interior kit.
quote from a ex RCAF warbirder - "a man on a galloping horse will not see that"
as you fly a display pass with a bit of left bank on, going past your "flying" buddy's " they will say "NICE PASS" as they see the grace of your Spitfire in flight! they will not see your cockpit detail.

the Hangar Queen builders in the group will say "nice cockpit"

my 2 cents of over doing cockpit detail, good call on your part.
I never flew the CF-100 but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express! I'm on Facebook as KPK Warbirds.
