Hawker Typhoon, Tempest project. Firewall, front spar etc
This is a unique opportunity to purchase the basis for a hawker Typhoon/Tempest project.
Main items consist of a rebuilt firewall with attachments along with a complete front spar as shown in the photos with several important parts such as wing pick up points etc. The remains of a firewall are clearly seen attached but buyers must be aware of the hazardous nature of some of the original firewall materials. Purchasers therefore accept the risks associated with the remains of the attached firewall.
The firewall has been rebuilt using original parts from EJ605, which was a Tempest MK V from 501 Squadron and all the harmful substances found on original firewalls have been removed.
