Spitfire MKI new made canopy with knockout panel
Here we have a superb new made Spitfire canopy for a MKI
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 MKI 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 equalised if the perspex enclosure had to be opened whilst flying at speed.
The pattern used to make this canopy was taken direct from the MKI 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
