 Spitfire Undercarriage indicator (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 1)

This Spitfire undercarriage indicator is in fact a reproduction. It is accurate in all respects and fully functional including the pull down blind which has over 20 individual parts. This we believe is the only working reproduction currently being produced world wide.  It is an extremely complicated piece to reproduce and that is reflected in the price however for a piece that is identical to  the original it offers extremely good value.

Shown left is a picture of an original for comparison.

Beaufighter/Blenheim Undercarriage indicators  (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 2)

Undercarriage indicator's made by the Bristol aircraft company. These were definitely fitted in Beaufighters and the Blenheim and may have been fitted in other aircraft made by Bristol with retracting undercarraige..

The Bristol Beaufighter was a remarkable aircraft. Great strength and power, good speed at low elevations and a most formidable and flexible armament. Its premier role was as a night fighter it was also intended from concept to be a long-range fighter. It  developed into an anti shipping and ground attack cannon and rocket-firing fighter, torpedo plane and tactical bomber. Its versatility and heavy armament feared by the enemy. The Japanese called this aircraft Whispering death.

Note the lower green lenses are set vertically.

Original Hurricane undercarriage indicator  (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 3)

 Original Hurricane undercarriage indicator in good condition fitted to early Hurricanes. This gauge is extremely rare and much harder to find than original Spitfire indicators. Seen below in situ top left of the instrument panel. This round style of U/C indicator is used in a great many aircraft types but the face with the vertical green lenses was only use in Hurricanes.

Original Lancaster undercarriage indicator  (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 5)

This is an original Lancaster undercarriage indicator in superb condition and was fitted to the main instrument panel. This model also appears to be fitted to later Hurricanes being very similar in design the green lenses are slightly off the vertical. To my Knowledge it was used exclusively in these two aircraft.

475

Fleet Air Arm undercarriage indicator  (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 6)

This is an extremely rare undercarriage indicator for a deck carrier operated aircraft in fact the only one I have seen. This can be established by the deck hook retract light. The Airminstry crown identifies this as a pre 1944 piece. The only aircraft I am aware of that used this type of U/C indicator and operated as carrier cased aircraft at this time were the Sea Hurricane, Barracuda and possibly the Fairey Firefly. Although Seafires and other aircraft operated from carriers they did not have this type of indicator.

The Mosquito took on every major role demanded of it shown under in its guise as a night fighter.

Mosquito Undercarriage indicator  (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 8)

This is an undercarriage indicator for the Mosquito, this instrument is specific to the Mosquito. 

Rare in its own right it functions as it should, it has the additional benefit of being dated 1942 and is an early metal version being fitted to the very first operational MKs of the Mosquito.

 A little known fact is that the Mosquito could carry a 4000Lb Bomb the same payload as the Boeing B17.

Herman Goring head of the Luftwaffe was a fan of the Mosquito and had this to say about it.

 

 

"In 1940 I could at least fly as far as Glasgow in most of my aircraft, but not now! It makes me furious when I see the Mosquito. I turn green and yellow with envy.

The British, who can afford aluminum better than we can, knock together a beautiful wooden aircraft that every piano factory over there is building, and they give it a speed which they have now increased yet again. 

What do you make of that?

There is nothing the British do not have. They have the geniuses and we have the nincompoops. 

After the war is over I'm going to buy a British radio set - then at least I'll own something that has always worked."

Typhoon /Tempest Undercarriage indicator (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 10)

This is an undercarriage indicator suitable for the Hawker Tempest and Typhoon in very nice original condition. This particular U/C indicator seems to be a more generic indicator and used in other aircraft types of the period. The night day switch  does not turn

Seen in situ above left in Duxfords Typhoon cockpit.

Spitfire reproduction undercarriage indicators (Page16 Undercarriage indicators 13)

Superb reproduction undercarriage indicator for the Spitfire. These are a great alternative for the rare and expensive originals. The blinds do not work as this is extremely complicated to replicate but they look superb and once mounted in a panel are hard to tell apart. We are working on an improved version with bulb holders to be announced.
