Spitfire perspex canopy. New made MKII, MKV canopy with knockout panel
Here we have a superb new made Spitfire canopy for a used on the MKII and early MKV Spitfires
Made by the same company that supplies the BBMF and other leading Spitfire restoration companies. As can be seen in the photos, the quality is exceptional.
The MKII aircraft has a bulged hood and an oval push-out panel on the port side, added after pilots passed word on about the difficulty of opening the canopy at high speeds. It allowed the pressure inside and outside the cockpit to be equalized if the Perspex enclosure had to be opened whilst flying at speed.
The pattern used to make this canopy was taken direct from the MKII Canopy held at the RAF Museum at Hendon. It is therefore correct in both size and thickness. We have been very fortunate to obtain this canopy at this price as they normally retail at £1550 plus VAT
Obviously the MKII Spitfire was used in the Battle of Britain and the attached photos show not only the quality of the canopy but several different Spitfires with it in situ
Collection would be preferred by arrangement. Alternatively buyers must contact me for a shipping quote
I also have MKV bubble canopies and MKIX canopies in stock
