Original Seafire wing skin with markings and history. SX336
Here we have another original wing from Seafire MK XVII SX336.
The restoration of this aircraft is well documented following the recovery of 2 airframes, namely SX336 and SX300, from a scrapyard in 1973. This panel is a wing skin covered in original paint with a partial 'S' which formed part of the registration number displayed on the aircraft. I have not attempted to remove any paint to find a part number. I have several pieces from this restoration many of which actually bear early part numbers such as MKII , MKV etc although SX336 is a MK XVII.
Obviously certain parts which were generic to different MK's were used in the original construction
The panel measures 80cm by 50cm and is from underneath the port wing. In addition to the partial 'S' there is also the shadow of other letters which can be faintly seen in the last 2 photos. There are also some of the stiffeners still attached which can be seen in the second photo
A nice piece of original Seafire/Spitfire with markings
