but then something went haywire, and now I can't upload here anymore, really weird. When I click the 'submit a file' button, the FSX repaints remains grey, while others are black and clickable. I'm open for suggestions?

So meanwhile, here's a few dropbox links:

Spitfire IXc MA504, which was one of three Mk IX Spitfires that was converted for high altitude interceptions by No 10 and 41 squadrons SAAF, while based at St Jean and Idku, Egypt. The other two aircraft were MA792 and MH946. They were stripped of paint and machine guns, and all other equipment that was not deemed necessary to reach high flying Junkers JU-86 bombers that flew in excess of 40.000 ft. MA504 is reported to have reached 47.000 ft with wing commander Dereck 'Bill' Kain at the helm during a test flight. After a successful interception of a Junkers, the Germans stopped the high altitude flights.

Spitfire IXc BS273 was one of the Spitfires modified for high altitude interceptions, based at Northolt, 1942, and regularly flown by F/O Prince Emanuel Galtzine. The prince was a Russian immigrant, a great grandson of Tsar Paul 1. After the Russian revolution, his family fled Russia, ending up in England. He wanted to fly, and when the Russian attacked Finland, he decided to join the Finnish Air Force. However, on hearing his mother was killed in the London blitz, he returned to the UK (via the US and Canada) and joined the RAF, becoming a Spitfire pilot with the Special Service Flight in Northolt. On 12 September 1942, he intercepted a JU-86 above Southampton at 41.000ft and attacked it. The battle went up to 43.000 ft, and was the highest recorded air battle of WWII. His spitfire only had two cannons, and one of them was frozen solid, giving a very unbalanced flight while shooting, combined with excessive vapor trails of his ammunition. It is believe he managed to hit the German aircraft, but in the end it got away safely. However, since the Germans now knew they could be intercepted, they launched no more high altitude attacks on the UK.

A few more RAAF Spitfires just uploaded.
I noticed that this takes me to 41 pages of repaints, is that more than a 1000?
