Spitfire Airframe part 3* (Pg 4 Airframe )

This part is almost like new . It carries the part number

349 = Mk XIV Spitfire

08= Bottom main planes

The Spitfire XIV was a short range medium-high altitude fighter combining the Spitfire Mk VIII airframe with a Rolls-Royce Griffon engine. Armament was either: B wing - 2 x 20 mm cannon and 4 x .303 Browning guns, or E wing - 2 x 20 mm cannon and .50 Browning guns. The operational weight with full fuel and ammunition was 8,400 lbs. It was fitted with a two-speed, two-stage Griffon 65 engine of 2,220 h.p. Internal fuel capacity was 112 gallons with pick-up points provided for carrying of 30 gallon, 45 gallon or 90 gallon drop tanks. Later models could be equipped with a 33 gallon rear fuselage tank. In appearance it was very similar to the Spitfire XII with normal wings, except that it had a five-bladed propeller. The fin and rudder were further modified. Production models entering service beginning in February 1945 featured a cut-back rear fuselage and teardrop bubble canopy.

Shown above the Spitfire MK XIV E note the five blade prop and bubble canopy.

Spitfire Airframe part 8* (Pg 4 Airframe )

This is a substanicial piece of Spitfire wing from a relatively rare variant of the Spitfire.

 I found a part number on this one 351 08

551 = Mk VII Spitfire 08 = Bottom outer main planes.

Mk VII (type 351)

Shown above the MK VII C Spitfire note the distinctive pointed extended wing tips

 

Like the Mk VI, the Mk VII was a high altitude pressurised variant, this time powered by the Merlin 64 (F. Mk. VII) or 71 (H.F. Mk. VII) series engine with two-stage, two-speed superchargers. The cockpit was pressurised in a similar way to that of the Mk VI, although the details were slightly different. Other changes to the airframe are noted above. The Mk VII used a Marshall manufactured compressor for pressurising the cockpit; this was mounted on the right of the engine and drew its air through a long intake under the starboard exhaust stubs. An automatic valve allowed a maximum pressure differential of +2 lb./sq.in. This was built up during the climb and was maintained at heights of 28,000 ft and above.

Extended, "pointed" wingtips were fitted to the Type C wings, increasing the wingspan to 40 ft 2 in (12.2 m). Because the threat from high altitude bombers never materialised many Mk VIIs later reverted to the normal, rounded wingtip.

While early Mk VIIs were fitted with a detachable canopy, secured by four pilot-operated catches, later Mk VIIs were fitted with a "Lobelle"-type hood which opened by sliding backwards, as on non-pressurised versions of the Spitfire. This was a big improvement on the clampdown cockpit of the Mk VI. The canopy was double-glazed and used rubber tubing to create a proper pressure seal against the fuselage. The canopy rails were bulkier than the standard Spitfire type.

n total, 140 Mk VIIs were built by Supermarine. Most of them were powered by the Merlin 64 (F. Mk. VII) or Merlin 71 (H.F Mk. VII), the latter fitted with a Bendix-Stromberg "anti-g" carburettor.The HF Mk had superb high-altitude performance, with a service ceiling of 45,100 feet (13,700 m); French ace Pierre Clostermann recalls in his book, The Big Show, the successful interception of a long-range reconnaissance Messerschmitt Bf 109G-6/R3 by a Mk VII 'Strato Spitfire' of 602 Squadron at 40,000 feet (12,000 m) over the British Home Fleet's base at Scapa Flow in early 1944.

Original Spitfire part.

Part number 351 = Spitfire MK VIII    20 = Bottom Elevators

Work began on redesigning the Spitfire airframe to take the new heavier more powerful engine. This work would produce the pressurised MK VIII and the unpressurised Mk VIII Spitfires. These aircraft were expected to be the answer to the FW 190. In the event the interim MK IX performed that function. This version used a Mk V fuselage with as few changes as possible, and entered front line service in July 1942, nearly a year before the Mk VIII.

Shown above the Spitfire MK VIII in RAAF markings.

The Mk VIII (and VII) featured a strengthened fuselage with a retractable tail wheel. Each wing carried a 14-gallon self sealing fuel tank, and the main fuselage fuel tank was increased in size to 96 gallons. These changes gave the Mk VIII the same range as the Mk V, although as this distance was achieved at a higher speed, the Mk VIII could stay in the air for less time than the Mk V. Most Mk VIIIs used a new broad-chord, or pointed-tip rudder. It also featured a new tropical filter the Vokes Aero-Vee that was so well designed it was installed on all Mk VIIIs and adapted for tme Mk IX. The Mk VIII used the c wing armament (four cannon or two cannon and two machine guns) and could carry up to 1,000lbs of bombs.

A Mk VIII was the first Spitfire to use the revised cockpit seen on most later models, with a cut-down rear fuselage and a bubble canopy. This design improved the rearwards visibility of the aircraft, and was used in late production Mk IXs, the very similar Mk XVI and the late Mk 20 and above.  

1,657 Mk VIIIs were produced in all, so although it never replaced the MK IX in Britain and Northern Europe it was still a major version of the Spitfire.

MK III Spitfire Airframe part 13*(Pg 4 Airframe )

Very rare Spitfire MK III Original  part.

Part number 330 = Spitfire MK III

08 = Bottom main plane (wing)

Part number 851

       

Shown above the Spitfire MK III note the flat wing tips.

The Mk III was the first major redesign of the Spitfire. The new aircraft was based around the Merlin XX engine, a 1240 hp engine with a two-speed supercharger, which would have given much better high altitude performance. Other changes included a shorter clipped wing, which reduced the wing span to 327, increasing the rate of roll. The bullet proof glass on the canopy was moved inside the cockpit, reducing drag. The tail wheel was made retractable. The universal c wing was used, which could take four 20mm cannon, eight .303in machine guns, or two cannon and four machine guns. Maximum speed increased to 385 mph.

However, although an order was placed for mass production of the Mk III, it was soon cancelled. The Merlin XX was in short supply, and was needed more urgently in the Hurricane MK II Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce had developed the Merlin 45, a similar engine that could be used in a MK I or MKII  fuselage. The Mk III was abandoned in favour of the Mk V, although many of the improvements first seen in the Mk III were used in later versions of the aircraft. The Mk III airframe was later used to test the Merlin 61 engine, becoming the ancestor of the MK VII, Mk VIII and MK IX Spitfires.
