wouldn't be easier to (re)build it out of Russo' Emil?? After all, isn't that what they were originally (with the externally braced horizontal stabs?)

In fact, they were originally G airframes, adapted for taking the new engines. Pilots said it was a beast.

In fact, it was a 109G-6 airframe mixed with a Spit9 engine/prop. The wing had a large fence and carried a small rocket ordnance. A hybrid in essence.

The single-stage Merlin 500 series engines had more in common with the post-war transports like the Lancastrian and York than the two-stage Merlin 61 (and 63/ 63A) engines used in the Spitfire IX. Apparently, this was a nod in the direction of longevity as opposed to all-out engine performance.
