Lol... all that for this.

Secondly: Supermarine had no idea of what was a boundary layer and in particularly bellow the wing. This is why the Spitfire rads are so deep in shape compared to their German's counterparts or latter US design.

Hve fun

Not at all Tom. It wasn't me who brought up the topic of the Meredith Effect. Posters in other threads seemed to think that drag in radiators wasn't currently modelled.

The video demonstrates that drag from the radiators is modelled.

Might i suggest if you want to be disparaging of others you should at least write one sentence that makes sense in the English language, then people might have some idea what you are talking about.
