• WWII Spitfire/Seafire wing panel


    Here we have an original Seafire/Spitfire wing panel. This has the part number 377 08 109  V397 stamped on it which indicates that it came off a Seafire XV although many parts were common between Seafires and Spitfires. This part is from the lower main wing, front leading edge as bourne out by the thickness of the plate used in construction. Thicker plate was use on leading edges and protective panels such as fuel tanks, than were used on the fuselage or tail.

    This panel appears to have been de rivetted even though it is damaged and still has original green paint on it. Measurements are 29 inches long by 28 inches wide.

    This would make a fantastic display item or be used as a template.
