HF wings was designed for high altittude, so not only the aircraft had more wingspan than normal Spitfires, also the wing tips where pointed. It should be called Spitfire IXe but not with HF prefix.
The designation Spitfire IXc to the current one is wrong, because C was the armament consisted of 4 20mm Hispano cannons, the B designation is for 2xHispano + 4xMGs, so it should be called Spitfire IXb, also the airplane was available in 1942, not 1943.

The other error is the cockpit placement, it is to low and the nose of the plane apear A LOT in the front of canopy. Check the current Spitfire V in game, the cockpit is correct in place. The same error is shared by the CR.42. Both planes have the cockpit buried to much in the fuselage, very unrealistic. If you translate this to the external model the Spitfire IX will look with a bubble on top of the nose or with the nose pointed up.
