Very nice Spitfire build! I have to ask... what's up with the extra large US insignia?

Thank you,
As for the insignia, I am pretty sure it was off a 1/48 scale decal sheet. Not accurate at all, but it was what I had and I thought it looked close enough to the part.

Ok, gotcha! I was just wondering if the markings reflected a real aircraft but it's the result of using 1/48 scale decals on a 1/72 scale kit.

It is actually from War Thunder, the paint scheme and insignia combination were on a teammates aircraft, and I liked it so much I put it on my own spit, then made a model of it.
