 Bristol Blenheim Blister (Pg1 Can )

. The first Blenheims were delivered to 114 Squadron on the 10th March 1937 at RAF Wyton, Cambridgeshire.  1500 Mk Is were built in total and of these 1007 were in service the outbreak of World War II in September 1939. 

These included 147  Blenheim Mk IF fighter standard, fitted with four Browning machine guns, some of these were later equipped with Al radar and served as night fighters in the autumn of 1940.  By early 1938 it was obvious that the Blenheim I was already obsolescent and by the time war broke out most of the Mk I bombers were serving in the Middle and Far East, the home-based squadrons having rearmed with the improved Blenheim Mk IV.

P 40 Canopy crank (pg1 Can)

Here is a near mint condition canopy crank handle for a P40 used to open and close the canopy. It comes with its original instruction label. I see no reason why this peace should not fly again subject to the relevant checks.

Shown under the P 40.

First flown in April 1941, the P-40C was considered the first truly combat-ready version of the P-40 line.

 The aircraft’s gross weight had increased from 7,215 to 8,058 pounds from the earlier design , an increase of approximately 11 percent, with no increase in engine power. The P-40C’s rate of climb suffered, it was less manoeuvrable, and its maximum speed fell to 340 mph.

 By comparison, the Messerschmitt Me-109E used by the Luftwaffe in 1941 weighed only 6,100 pounds and had a top speed of 360 mph.

By the end of 1941 the USAAC had deployed P-40s overseas. Thirty were flown to Iceland from the aircraft carrier Wasp, and 99 of them were stationed in Hawaii. In addition, four squadrons of P-40s were deployed in the Philippines.

 It was with the RAF that the Tomahawk Mk.II first saw action, however, flying reconnaissance sorties and fighter sweeps across the English Channel with the RAF and Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) in 1941.

By May 1941 Tomahawks were also operating in the Middle East, eventually serving in that theatre with Australian and South African fighter squadrons as well as the RAF. In addition, the British sent 195 Tomahawks to the Soviet Union after the Germans invaded that country on June 22, 1941.


This screen has been left in its original condition but we can restore it if required.

Mk I Hurricane screen (pg1 Can)

All pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them.

This is superb piece and almost certainly one of a kind. This type of armoured windshield located outside the windscreen, was only used by the British and German Fighters before WWII.

This example is an experimental installation for a Hurricane MK I. I have drawn in a transparent paper, in red colour, the contour of the piece over a drawing of a Hurricane windscreen as an illustration. Apparently the set was completed with a curve piece made out of transparent Plexiglas, which most probable shape followed the contour drawn inn green.

Spitfire MK I Mirror (pg1 Can)

This mirror is new and has never been fitted in its original black finish. I has two very small marks on the glass see the picture left but this does not detract from its superb condition. A very rare piece used in the early Spitfires and Hurricanes in the Battle of France and the Battle of Britain , later superseded by the round type mirror this item is 100% original. It is marked with  A/M Kings crown.

MK XVIII Spitfire low back fairing (pg1 Can)

This is an original fairing from a MK XVIII  bubble canopy low back Spitfire in good condition with no visible corrosion. This MOD plate came from the aircraft this piece was taken from and was lost in the store for a long time , happily I found it recently and so this aircraft pieces identity has been restored. This MK XVIII Spitfire was built at Castle Bromwich.

Externally the Mk XVIII was very similar to late production Mk XIVs. It had the bubble canopy and cut back fuselage. It was armed with the “e” wing, with two 20mm cannon and two .50in machine guns, or four 20mm cannon. 300 were produced, 200 of which were FR (Fighter Reconnaissance) aircraft, which sacrificed some fuel capacity to carry two F.24 vertical cameras and one F.24 oblique camera. It used either a 2,035 hp Griffon 65 or a 2,340 hp Griffon 67. The Mk XVIII saw service after the Second World War, in Malaya and in Palestine. I have so far had trouble with the serial number it does not seem to appear in the list of Spitfire serials but it may have been exported or modified and this sometimes changed the serial number.

Astrodomes were prominent on RAF multi-engine aircraft of the WWII as a considerable part of their operations were carried out at night.

Astrodome (pg1 canopy)

Here we have an astrodome from as yet unidentified aircraft although I suspect this is a generic part as they all seem to be pretty much the same size..

An astrodome is a hemispherical transparent dome fitted in the cabin roof of an aircraft for the purpose of allowing the use of a sextant during astro navigation

Prior to the introduction of electronic means of navigation the only way to fix an aircraft's position at night was by taking star sights using a sextant in the same manner as that used by marine navigators on board ships. To do this requires a 360-degree view of the horizon and the astrodome was devised to allow an uninterrupted view of the sky from horizon to horizon.

P47 Thunderbolt Razor Back canopy frame (pg1 can)

Here is a P47 razor back canopy frame, we purchased this on a trip to Arnhem but it was actually recovered in the Ardennes. Although its history has been lost its almost certain that it took part in that campaign due to its recovered location.  The alloy part appears to be in good condition and the whole piece is straight . The steel frame has some light corrosion being steel this is to be expected and will be painted with primer prior to going into our store to preserve it. It is missing its ere section steel frame but is otherwise complete.

The Republic Aviation P-47
Thunderbolt fighter was the largest and most powerful single engine fighter of the war.  Production topped any other USAF fighter with 15,683 P-47’s produced.
Due to the shape of the fuselage, the Thunderbolt was known affectionately as the "Jug" by its  pilots and ground crews. Two distinctive versions were produced:
The earlier
"Razorback" design and later versions with a “bubble top” canopy.

The P-47 was armed with eight wing mounted Browning .50 calibre machine guns which could deliver 13 pounds of lead per second.  
When loaded with armour-piercing incendiary (API) rounds the .50 calibre did considerable damage to light armoured vehicles, trains, and aircraft.  
The P-47D-25 could carry 2500 lbs of external stores; this variety of HE bombs, incendiary bombs, napalm, and rockets gave the thunderbolt a hard punch.

Seven of the top 10 European American Aces flew the P-47 Thunderbolt against the Luftwaffe.  
Thunderbolt’s knocked 3,752 enemy aircraft out of the air while destroying another 2,800+ on the ground.
The heavily armoured plane sustained 824 combat losses, only .07% of the Jugs didn't return from a combat mission, the lowest total of any Allied fighter.

The Thunderbolt was the largest and heaviest single engine fighter flown in WW2, yet could fly at 425+ miles per hour straight and level.

Hawker Tempest MK II Canopy (pg1 Can)

Here is a superb low back canopy from a Hawker  Tempest . I believe this also fits the Hawker Fury The Perspex is also quite clear for its age please enlarge the pictures to assess its condition.

Image result for Hawker Tempest MK II

Shown above the Hawker tempest MK II.

Initially conceived as an upgraded, thin-wing Typhoon, the Tempest reached the ultimate in piston fighter performance. The Tempest Mk.II was designed to accommodate the Bristol Centaurus radial engine, thus loosing its beard-type radiator so typical for the Napier Sabre-powered Typhoons and Tempests. The prototype Tempest II made its maiden flight on June 28, 1943, but the production machines of this mark arrived just too late to take part in the war. Instead, the elegant Mk. II served with RAF squadrons in Germany and in the far East, being also sold to Iranian and Indian air forces. The aircraft evolved further into the last Hawker propeller-driven classic - the Fury.

FN 4 Turret cupola (pg1 arm)

This is an incredibly rare FN 4 Rear four gun Turret cupola. It is in good condition "see pictures" considering its age and is rare enough to be almost unique. It also has its original doors again in good condition for its age.

There seems to be some confusion about this Turrets origins, however the chap I got it from told me His Granddad  removed it personally from a Lancaster although it seems it may also have been fitted to a Short Stirling at sometime in its operational life.

Nash & Thomson was established in 1929 at Kingsdon-upon-Thames by business partners Archibald Frazer-Nash and Henry Ronald Godfrey. The company was formed to develop the turrets that Frazer Nash had originated, and their designs were consequently numbered in a series prefixed "FN".

 For UK customers we can deliver or you may collect.  For customers who require shipping  and for international buyers this canopy will have to be transported in a crate and this will be an additional cost of around £50.

Original Spitfire Canopy (pg1 canopy)


Here we have an original Spitfire canopy, it is in a very delicate state with several cracks and the front hoop is missing. This was purchased during our trip to Arnhem , its actual history has been lost but almost certainly saw action in this battle and is a nice collectable piece. I believe this fits all MK's except the very early Mk Is and of coarse the low backs with the bubble canopy.


This will require a packing case so contact us before purchase for accurate shipping costs. You are welcome to collect.

This is the piece that holds the armoured windscreen in place  and is an original Spitfire part .

The part number 330 is from a Spitfire MK III

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.
