    You should be able to do both -- they're two entirely separate functions.

    Mesh is bumps. Landclass is duvet cover.
    Neither clashes with the other...

    Mesh is the 3D model of the terrain. Landclass tells the sim what textures to paint on the terrain. Neither will interfere with the other; but a landclass designed for a particular mesh may not display 100% correctly on a different mesh - water appearing up on the shoreline, roads running along the side of a hill, rivers not coinciding with riverbeds, etc.

    Alternatively, revised mesh can make sense of otherwise questionable landclass - rocks in the middle of a field can become a rocky outcrop; the green grass in the middle of a built-up area is revealed as a steep slope, that kind of thing...

    Just a further historic correction: The Spitfire's first flight was early in March 1936, not 1935...
